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
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.
