To understand mathematics
students must be active learners. They must work many problems both inside and
outside of the classroom. The problems assigned should vary in difficulty so
that every student is challenged but not overwhelmed. Students should seek out
help before becoming discouraged.
Each exam is 20% of the grade.
Exam on Unit 1: Calculus
Exam on Unit 2: Set theory and
Exam on Unit 3: Linear
Exam on Unit 4: Abstract
Exam on Unit 5: Real Analysis
All exams will
be CLOSED REFERENCE, meaning that
you are NOT allowed to use any books or notes. Calculators
are not allowed on exams. PLEASE take each exam on the day that it is
scheduled. Make-up tests will only be given in the case of a documented
