# REAL ANALYSIS 2 - 2021/2

Module code: MAT2004

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information, the University has had to change the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes, together with certain University services and facilities for the academic year 2020/21.

These changes include the implementation of a hybrid teaching approach during 2020/21. Detailed information on all changes is available at: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/coronavirus/course-changes. This webpage sets out information relating to general University changes, and will also direct you to consider additional specific information relating to your chosen programme.

Prior to registering online, you must read this general information and all relevant additional programme specific information. By completing online registration, you acknowledge that you have read such content, and accept all such changes.

Module Overview

This module builds on the Year 1 module Real Analysis 1 and focuses on continuity, differentiability and integrability of real functions of one variable.

Module content

This module contains the following topics:

• Limits of functions, continuity (ε-δ definition). Sums, products, compositions. Intermediate value theorem and extreme value theorem.

• Differentiable functions (sums, products, quotients). Differentiability implies continuity. Chain rule, inverse functions. Rolle's theorem, mean value theorem, l'Hôpital's rule. Higher derivatives. Taylor 's theorem. Contraction mapping theorem.

• Theory of integration: upper and lower sums and integrals, the Riemann integral. Conditions for integrability (e.g., continuity implies integrability). Indefinite integration, and the fundamental theorem of calculus. Taylor series with integral remainder.

Assessment Strategy

The __assessment strategy__ is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate:

· Understanding of and ability to interpret and manipulate mathematical statements.

· Subject knowledge through the recall of key definitions, theorems and their proofs.

· Analytical ability through the solution of unseen problems in the test and exam.

Thus, the __summative assessment__ for this module consists of:

· One two hour examination (three best questions out of four contribute to exam mark) at the end of Semester 1; worth 80% module mark.

· One In-semester test; worth 20% module mark.

__Formative assessment and feedback__

Students receive written feedback via marked coursework assignments over an 11 week period. In addition, verbal feedback is provided by lecturer/class tutor at weekly tutorial lectures.

Module aims

- The aim of this module is to extend the introduction to real analysis by studying continuity, differentiability and integration of functions of a real variable in a more formal way and hence provide a deeper understanding of those concepts. Several applications will be presented alongside the theory.

**C** - Cognitive/analytical

**T** - Transferable skills

**P** - Professional/Practical skills

Overall student workload

Independent Study Hours: 106

Lecture Hours: 33

Seminar Hours: 11

Methods of Teaching / Learning

The __learning and teaching__ strategy is designed to provide:

- A detailed introduction to continuity, differentiability and integrability of real-valued functions.
- Experience (through demonstration) of the methods used to interpret, understand and solve problems in analysis

The

__learning and teaching__methods include:

3 x 1 hour lectures per week x 11 weeks, with projector-displayed written notes to supplement the module handbook and Q + A opportunities for students.

1 x 1 hour interactive problem solving session/tutorial lecture per week x 11 weeks.

Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
