### Foundations of Higher Mathematics (Math 300) — Fall 2018

**Time and place.** Mo(Tu)WeFr 9:00–9:50am in Frances Searle 1-441.

Welcome to Math 300! As its name suggests, this course will introduce you to the fundamental mathematical concepts and skills that you will need to study mathematics at a higher level than a typical introductory calculus and linear algebra sequence. We will emphasise both problem-solving and proof-writing skills, including typesetting mathematics using LaTeX.

Most administrative aspects of the course will be handled using Canvas.

**Syllabus.** You can download the course syllabus here. It will be updated when the identity of the TA has been established.

**Textbook.** Our textbook will be my book-in-progress, *An infinite descent into pure mathematics*, which can be downloaded for free here.

**Homework.** Homework assignments will be due at the beginning of class on Wednesdays—they can be downloaded from Canvas.

**Examinations.** There will be a midterm exam and a final exam.

**Midterm.** During class on Wednesday 31st October.
**Final.** 3:00–5:00pm on Thursday 13th December (location TBA).
