MATH 347 D1H - Fundamental Mathematics
Fundamental ideas used in many areas of mathematics. Topics will include: techniques of proof, mathematical induction, binomial coefficients, rational and irrational numbers, the least upper bound axiom for real numbers, and a rigorous treatment of convergence of sequences and series. This will be supplemented by the instructor from topics available in the various texts. Students will regularly write proofs emphasizing precise reasoning and clear exposition. Course Information: Credit is not given for both MATH 347 and MATH 348. Prerequisite: MATH 231.
This is an honors section for undergraduates who are excellent in mathematics and enjoy a rigorous, abstract class. Interested students with A's in previous math courses should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Honors Math 347 request" and include name, UIN, and reason for wanting the class. Students are typically advised to complete Math 241 prior to applying for honors Math 347. Approval for the honors section does not guarantee an open seat in this section.
