    General facts about this course

    This course is the continuation of MAA 4211. MAA 4211-12 is geared towards math majors and other people like the conceptual side of math, not just the computational side. MAA 4211-12 is best treated as a one-year course, with a certain body of material to be covered by the end of the spring, rather than as a course that can be compartmentalized into semesters. In the spring we will be using the foundational material developed in the fall.

    This is a very different course from MAA 4102-4103 (Introduction to Advanced Calculus for Engineers and Physical Scientists). Our focus will be on proving theorems, not on applications to the sciences.


    A grade of C or higher in MAA 4211, taken last semester. Any student not meeting this prerequisite must discuss his or her situation with me and get explicit permission from me to take this class. In some instances the instructor may allow MAA 4211, taken in an earlier year, to serve as prerequisite; similarly the instructor may allow the combination of MAA 5228, taken last semester, and MAS 4105 (both with grades of C or higher), to serve as a prerequisite. However, all students are responsible for all material covered in MAA 4211 Fall 2001, whether or not they took the class that semester. Note that MAA 4102/5104 (Advanced Calculus for Engineers and Physical Scientists) absolutely does not serve as a prerequisite for MAA 4212.

    Other skills needed

    You must have the ability to write in clear, unambiguous, grammatical English sentences. Having completed MAA 4211, you are now expected to be able to express mathematical ideas in precise terms, and communicate them clearly to other people. A factor in your grade will be whether the instructor can understand your written work without excessive re-reading.
