This course builds on the foundation of MAT110 and equips the student with the basic ideas and concepts of Real Analysis. It is a one-semester course that covers, in a brief and elementary way, the most important topics in the subject in real analysis rather than a lengthy, detailed, comprehensive treatment, which normally requires an entire academic year. Successful completion of this course should provide students with a foundation for their understanding of calculus, which will enhance teaching of mathematics up through secondary school level.

The Real Number System: Axioms for a Field, the extended real numbers, sequences of real numbers, open and closed sets of real numbers, continuous functions, Borel Sets

Basic Topology: Finite, Countable and Non-Countable Sets, Metric Spaces, Compact Sets, Perfect Sets, Connected Sets

Integration: The Riemann Integral, the Lebesgue Integral.
