This course is meant to familiarize the student with the rigorous theory behind the study of functions of a single real variable, and goes over the proofs of some of the
major results used in calculus. Topics to be covered include:
the topology and order structure of the real line; sequences of real numbers and limits of sequences; functions of a real variable:
limits of functions at a point, continuous functions and their properties -- Intermediate Value Theorem , uniform continuity;
the derivative of a function at a point and differentiability, the Mean Value Theorem, and
Taylor's Theorem; the Riemann integral and its properties, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus; and if time permits,
a brief overview of series of real numbers and power series expansions.

We will use the text "Analysis, With an Introduction to Proof", S.R. Lay, Pearson - Prentice Hall, 2014,
5th edition. After a quick review of Chapters 1 and 2, we will cover most of Chapters 3--7, and part of Chapter 8.
