The main purpose of this module is to introduce the key concepts of real analysis: limit, continuity and differentiation. Emphasis will be placed on the rigorous development of the material, giving precise definitions of the concepts involved and exploring the proofs of important theorems. This module forms the prerequisite for all later modules in mathematical analysis. It is recommended that students in the Faculties of Arts and Divinity take an even number of the 15-credit 2000-level MT modules.
Pre-requisite(s): Before taking this module you must pass MT1002. If MT1002 has not been passed, advanced higher mathematics (at grade a) or A-Level further mathematics (at grade a) or admission to a fast track mmath programme.
