**Instructor.**Francisco-Javier (Pancho) Sayas. My personal website is here and my group's site is here.

**Textbook.**Walter Rudin,*Principles of Mathematical Analysis*, Third edition.**Office hours.**By appointment. Email me or talk to me in class to get an appointment. I will not reteach lectures during office hours. I will not solve your homework problems either. The goal of homework problems is that you learn how to solve them. The solution is less relevant than you ability to solve the problem.

**Problem solving sessions.**MW 5pm-6pm in EWG209

**Evaluation.**%15 short midterm exam (October 5), %25 long midterm exam (November 2), 30% final exam (date TBD), 30% pop quizzes (average of all grades, eliminating the worst one)- No graded homework
