Course Details
Course Code MATHS 2100 Course Real Analysis II Coordinating Unit School of Mathematical Sciences Term Semester 2 Level Undergraduate Location/s North Terrace Campus Units 3 Contact Up to 3.5 hours per week Prerequisites MATHS 1012 Course Description Much of mathematics relies on our ability to be able to solve equations, if not in explicit exact forms, then at least in being able to establish the existence of solutions. To do this requires a knowledge of socalled ``analysis", which in many respects is just Calculus in very general settings. The foundations for this work are commenced in Real Analysis, a course that develops this basic material in a systematic and rigorous manner in the context of realvalued functions of a real variable.
Topics covered are: Basic set theory. The real numbers, least upper bounds, completeness and its consequences. Sequences: convergence, subsequences, Cauchy sequences. Open, closed, and compact sets of real numbers. Continuous functions, uniform continuity. Differentiation, the Mean Value Theorem. Sequences and series of functions, pointwise and uniform convergence. Power series and Taylor series. Metric spaces: basic notions generalised from the setting of the real numbers. The space of continuous functions on a compact interval. The Contraction Principle. Picard's Theorem on the existence and uniqueness of solutions of ordinary differential equations.Course Staff

Learning & Teaching Activities
Learning & Teaching Modes
This course relies on lectures as the primary delivery mechanism for the material. Tutorials supplement the lectures by providing exercises and example problems to enhance the understanding obtained through lectures. A sequence of written assignments provides assessment opportunities for students to gauge their progress and understanding.Workload
The information below is provided as a guide to assist students in engaging appropriately with the course requirements.

Tutorials
Tutorials will be held in each even week, covering material from the preceding two weeks of lectures. Students will be encouraged to play an active role in tutorials, but will not be assessed on this. Attendance at tutorials will comprise 3% of the final mark. 
Assessment
The University's policy on Assessment for Coursework Programs is based on the following four principles:
 Assessment must encourage and reinforce learning.
 Assessment must enable robust and fair judgements about student performance.
 Assessment practices must be fair and equitable to students and give them the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned.
 Assessment must maintain academic standards.
Assessment Summary
Component Task type Due Weighting Objective Assessed Tutorial attendance Formative Even weeks 3 All Assignments Formative and summative Odd weeks 21 All Test Summative Lecture 15 20 1,2,3,5 Exam Summative Exam period 56 All Assessment Related Requirements
An aggregate score of at least 50% is required to pass the course.Assessment Detail
With the exception of the first assignment, assignments will be distributed in the middle of each even week and due at the end of each odd week. Each will mainly cover material from the previous weeks' lectures, but may include material from the next one or two lectures.
The first assignment will be distributed at the start of the first week and due at the end of that week. It will largely cover material from Mathematics I for the purpose of refreshing the key ideas from a first course in Calculus.
The first assignment will be worth 1% of the final mark. The remaining five assignments will each be worth 4% of the final mark.
The midsemester test will be held during the 15th lecture period. It will cover the material covered in lectures up to the end of Lecture 12. It will be worth 20% of the final mark.Submission
All written assignments are to be submitted to the designated handin boxes within the School of Mathematical Sciences.
Late assignments will not be accepted.
Assignments will have a two week turnaround time for feedback to students.
Course Grading
Grades for your performance in this course will be awarded in accordance with the following scheme:
M10 (Coursework Mark Scheme) Grade Mark Description FNS Fail No Submission F 149 Fail P 5064 Pass C 6574 Credit D 7584 Distinction HD 85100 High Distinction CN Continuing NFE No Formal Examination RP Result Pending Further details of the grades/results can be obtained from Examinations.
Grade Descriptors are available which provide a general guide to the standard of work that is expected at each grade level. More information at Assessment for Coursework Programs.
Final results for this course will be made available through Access Adelaide.

Student Feedback
The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including ongoing engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.
SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

Fraud Awareness
Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zerotolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's studentâ€™s disciplinary procedures.
The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
