Makes precise the notions of convergence and continuity and examines the validity of intuition about these notions. The course thus puts calculus on a firm foundation and establishes the range of its application. Convergence and continuity form the foundation for much more than elementary calculus and the course also aims to orient students towards these further developments. This course is therefore appropriate for those intending to teach mathematics, as well as those who wish to pursue further study in mathematics.
