The final is at Boelter 5249, on Wednesday March 19, 11:30
pm - 2:30 pm.
(*) - The course description and textbook and schedule are for 131A, not 131AH,
so these pages are only a very rough guide as to what to expect from the
We recommend that you read the lecture notes and the
textbook concurrently with (or prior to) the lectures. If you only read these
sources occasionally and after the fact (e.g. when your homework is due) then
you will not get the most out of the course.
Sample exams and solutions
- A supplemental handout on logic.
You may also enjoy these lighter-hearted logic
puzzles of Lewis Carroll as practice.
- A supplemental handout on set
theory. (Errata: on line 21 of
page 8, “(d) Show that (A\B) U B = A
[...]” should be "(d) Show that (A\B) U B = A U B [...]". Thanks to Edoardo Buscicchio for this
- A supplemental handout on the
decimal system (optional reading)
- The notion of two sets having equal cardinality if
there is a bijective mapping between them is intuitively obvious, but
there are still some subtleties if one tries to extend this idea beyond
just counting sets. Take a look at the missing
square puzzle or the Leprechaun puzzle to
see some of those subtleties.
- Real analysis was developed by several key
mathematicians, mostly in the nineteenth century, including Cantor,Cauchy,Dedekind,Hilbert,Lebesgue,Peano,Riemann,
these links point to biographies of these famous mathematicians.
