Description: Aims:
To define the notions of convergence and limit precisely, to give rigorous proofs of the principal theorems on the analysis of sequences and series, and to develop the theory of continuity, differentiation and integration for functions of one real variable.

Learning Outcomes:
After taking this unit, the students should be able to:
* State definitions and theorems...
* Present proofs of key theorems...
* Apply these definitions and theorems to a range of examples...
* Construct their own proofs of simple unseen results...
...relating to the analysis of sequences and to functions of one real variable.

Skills:
