Module description


Rigorous treatment of continuity, differentiation and Riemann integral for functions of one variable.


4CCM115a Sequences and Series (or equivalent background).

Assessment details

Semester 1 only students will be set an alternative assessment in lieu of in-person exams in January.

Full year students will complete the standard assessment.

Educational aims & objectives

The aim of the module is to provide rigorous theoretical foundation for key concepts appearing in Analysis: open sets, closed sets, continuous maps, continuity, differentiability, Riemann integral. This is done in the context of sets on the real line and of functions of one variable.

Learning outcomes

Be able to perform simple theoretical analysis involving functions of one real variable (continuity, differentiation, integration). 

Teaching pattern

Three hours of lectures and one hour of tutorial per week throughout the term
