Welcome to Honors Math Analysis.

In these course pages you will find the course syllabus and a weekly schedule of assignments. Additionally, I will post fundamental definitions, axioms, theorems or interesting ideas developed in class. Remember that the class notes will be the most comprehensive and your primary reference.

1 | Meet and Greet – Course Bureaucracy |

2 | Day 1 continued: Review Real Number System. Natural numbers and integers are subsets of the rational numbers. Can you describe geometrically, what makes a rational number different from an irrational number? |

3 | Review of the real number system continued. Review factoring. HW: R.2 (pg 885); 3,8,12, 14,17, 19, 21,24,30, 42,47, 62,66, for 68-88 choose a few that you would not want to see on a quiz or test. |

5 | 2.1 Basic Functions – Definition and some properties. HW: 2.1; 35-46, 54-76 |

6 | 2.1 Basic Functions – Definition and some properties HW: Review and Retry problems with which you had difficulty. |

7 | In class investigation with functions. Introduction to LaTeX HW: TBA |

8 | 2.2 Function Transformations and Their Graphs. Initially we will consider function transformations analytically (without a calculator) and develop some experience with transformations. Developing analytical skills are important for doing well on non-calculator based tests, as well as, and more importantly, having the ability to know if the answer that a computer produced is reasonable. HW: 2.2; 11-19, 25-30, 31-42 |

9 | 2.2 Function Transformations and Their Graphs. HW: 2.2; 47-62 |

10 | 2.2 Function Transformations and Their Graphs. Using the graphing calculator to obtain correct answers. HW: Choose a few of the previous homework problems and solve using the graphing calculator. |

11 | 2.3 Function Transformations Continued. HW: 2.3; 1-8, 11-12, 19,20,21, 33,34, 36,38,46,48 |

12 | 2.3 Function Transformations Continued.HW: 52-53, 59-60, We’ll need to pay attention to the language used in the instructions for problems 63-74. |

13 | 2.1-2.3: Reviewing the Basics HW: 1-10 |

14 | 2.4 Absolute Value. HW: 2.4; 1-20 |
