Office Hours : Maria Warren will hold office hours on Wednesday, March 16, 10:00am-12:00pm, in AP&M B402. Prof. Kemp will hold office hours on Wednesday, March 16, 1:00-3:30pm, in his office.Final Practice Problems : Here are five practice problems focusing on material covered since Midterm 2. They are very similar to problems you will see on the Final Exam on Thursday. Solutions have been posted on Piazza.Preparation for the Final Exam : here is a summary of topics and techniques we've covered since Midterm 2. Also, here and here are the earlier posted Prep documents for Midterms 1 and 2.

Textbook : The required textbook for this course is

We will cover parts of chapters 1-4 of the text. All posted reading and homeowork assignments will refer to the chapter and section numbers of this textbook. We will also post lecture notes as we go.*Principles of Mathematical Analysis, 3rd edition*, by Walter Rudin; ISBN 9780070542358Coursework : There will be weekly homework assignments due on Fridays; they are posted below. There will be two evening midterm exams and a final exam; dates, times, and locations posted below.Piazza : We will use Piazza, an online discussion board. It will allow you to post messages (openly or anonymously) and answer posts made by your fellow students, about course content, homework, exams, etc. The instructors will also monitor and post to Piazza regularly. You can sign up here if you are not signed up.TritonEd : We will use TritonEd (formerly known as Ted) to disseminate grades. It will not be used for anything else: all course resources are hosted here on the main webpage.

We will be communicating with you and making announcements through an online question and answer platform called Piazza (sign up link: piazza.com/ucsd/winter2016/math140a). We ask that when you have a question about the class that might be relevant to other students, you post your question on Piazza instead of emailing us. That way, everyone can benefit from the response. Posts about homework or exams on Piazza should be content based. While you are encouraged to crowdsource and discuss coursework through Piazza, please do not post complete solutions to homework problems there. Questions about grades should be brought to the instructors, in office hours. You can also post private messages to instructors on Piazza, which we prefer to email.

Our office hours can be found in the following calendar.

Welcome to Math 140A: the first course (of three) introducing the foundations of real analysis (i.e. the rigorous mathematical theory of calculus). According to the UC San Diego Course Catalog, the topics covered are basic properties of the real numbers, complex numbers, metric spaces, sequences and series of real numbers, functions of a real variable, and continuity. Most of the material for these topics will be taken from the first four chapters of the text by Rudin. (Students may not receive credit for both Math 140A and Math 142A.)

**Prerequisite:** Math 31CH or Math 109.

**Lecture:** Attending the lecture is a fundamental part of the course; you are
responsible for material presented in the lecture *whether or not it is discussed in the textbook.*
You should expect questions on the exams that will test your understanding of concepts discussed in the lecture.

**Homework:** Homework assignments are posted below, and will be due at 5:00pm
on the indicated due date. Please turn in your homework assignments in the dropbox in the basement of AP&M.
**Late homework will not be accepted. Your lowest two homework scores will be dropped.** It is allowed and even
encouraged to discuss homework problems with your classmates and your instructor and TA, but your final write up of your
homework solutions must be your own work.

**Regrades:** Homework and midterm exams will be returned in the discussion section. If you notice an
error in the way your homework/exam was graded, *you must return it immediately to your TA*. Regrade requests will
not be considered once the homework/exam leaves the room. If you do not retrieve your homework/exam during discussion
section, you must arrange to pick it up from your TA within one week after it was returned in order for any regrade request
to be considered.

**Grading:** Your course grade will be determined by your cumulative average at the end of the quarter.
The letter grades assigned will depend on the performance of the class.

Your cumulative average will be the best of the following three weighted averages:

- 20% Homework, 20% Exam I, 20% Exam II, 40% Final Exam
- 20% Homework, 40% Best Midterm Exam, 40% Final Exam
- 20% Homework, 20% Best Midterm Exam, 60% Final Exam

**Academic Integrity:** UC San Diego's
code of academic integrity
outlines the expected academic honesty of all studentd and faculty, and details the consequences for academic dishonesty.
The main issues are cheating and plagiarism, of course, for which we have a zero-tolerance policy. (Penalties for these
offenses always include assignment of a failing grade in the course, and usually involve an administrative penalty, such
as suspension or expulsion, as well.) However, academic integrity also includes things like giving credit where credit
is due (listing your collaborators on homework assignments, noting books or papers containing information you used in
solutions, etc.), and treating your peers respectfully in class. In addition, here are a few of our expectations for
etiquette in and out of class.

**Entering/exiting class:**Please arrive on time and stay for the entire class/section period. If, despite your best efforts, you arrive late, please enter quietly through the rear door and take a seat near where you entered. Similarly, in the rare event that you must leave early (e.g. for a medical appointment), please sit close to the rear exit and leave as unobtrusively as possible.**Noise and common courtesy:**When class/section begins, please stop your conversations. Wait until class/section is over before putting your materials away in your backpack, standing up, or talking to friends. Do not disturb others by engaging in disruptive behavior. Disruption interferes with the learning environment and impairs the ability of others to focus, participate, and engage.**Electronic devices:**Please do not use devices (such as cell phones, laptops, tablets, iPods) for non-class-related matters while in class/section. No visual or audio recording is allowed in class/section without prior permission of the instructor (whether by camera, cell phone, or other means).**E-mail etiquette:**You are expected to write as you would in any professional correspondence. E-mail communication should be courteous and respectful in manner and tone. Please do not send e-mails that are curt or demanding.
