Welcome to Math 142A: a one quarter course introduction to analysis (I). According to the UC San Diego Course Catalog, the topics covered are the real number system, numerical sequences and series, infinite limits, limits of functions, continuity, differentiation.
Here is a more detailed listing of course topics, in the sequence they will be covered, together with the relevant section(s) of the textbook. While each topic corresponds to approximately one lecture, there will be some give and take here. This is a rough schedule that will be updated during the term.

Prerequisite: MATH 31CH or MATH 109 or concent of instructor.
Lecture: 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 11:59pm on the indicated due date. You must turn in your homework through Gradescope; if you have produced it on paper, you can scan it or simply take clear photos of it to upload. Your lowest homework score 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.
Midterm Exams: The two midterm exams will take place during the lecture time at the dates listed above.
Final Exam: The final examination will be held at the date and time stated above.
The above exam policies will be applied to in-person exams. The exam policies will be changed in case of the changes in exam modality.
Administrative Links: Here are two links regarding UC San Diego policies on exams:
Grading: Your cumulative average will be computed as the best of the following weighted averages:
Your course grade will be determined by your cumulative average at the end of the quarter, and will be based on the following scale:
The above scale is guaranteed: for example, if your cumulative average is 80, your final grade will be at least B-. However, your instructor may adjust the above scale to be more generous.
Academic Integrity: UC San Diego 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.
