Homework will be due at the start of class on Wednesdays.  Weekly assignments will be posted here as well as on our class schedule.

If you want to download the .tex files for these assignments so that you can more easily type up your homework (something I strongly encourage everyone to do), then you will also need to download the “simplemargins.sty” file that I e-mailed to everyone on 8/31/2016.

Blog Posts

I will occasionally write up some notes and thoughts on our class discussions / work and share them as blog posts.  I will also try to maintain a current list of posts, but even when I fail to organize them in this way, you can find all Analysis posts by clicking here (and, yes, if they are helpful you can use them as part of your notes when working on take-home exams).
