Mathematics Reading Group - Session 3

The third meeting of the Mathematics Reading Group is Tuesday 26 October, 11 AM, Coombs Seminar Room F.

The reading is Chapter 3, "Numerical Sequences and Series", from Walter Rudin's Principles of Mathematical Analysis - but we'll only be looking at pages 47--58.

Supplementary reading is Chapter 2, "Sequences and Series", from Stephen Abbott's Understanding Analysis. (It's highly recommended that you read section 2.2 before starting on Rudin).

Shameless advertising: if you didn't know what the hell your maths teachers were on about with the epsilon-delta definition of limits, then this is the session to clear all that up!

  1. If we’re going to make certain that our students leave school with mathematics that assists them in their future, then we need to change what counts as mathematics. In the past, state standards that have spoken to the “habits of mind” we expect students to learn while in our classes were given short shrift. help me with maths
