MTH 300 - Intro to Higher Mathematics. A transition between elementary calculus and higher mathematics with emphasis on techniques of proof. (PR: C or better in MTH 230)

• Time and Place: 1:00 pm - 1:50 pm MTWR at 518 Smith Hall.
• Instructor: Peter Saveliev (call me Peter).
• Office: Smith Hall 713.
• Office Hours: MW 4:00, TR 3:00, or by appointment.
• Office Phone: x4639.
• E-mail: saveliev@marshall.edu.
• Class Web-Page: math03.com.
• Prerequisites: a certain level of mathematical maturity acquired through experience with calculus, algebra, geometry, etc. -- Calculus III.
• Text: Mathematical Proofs (A transition to higher mathematics) by Chartrand/Ploimeni/Zhang (recommended reading) and the lecture notes.
• Outcomes: the student will become proficient at reading proofs, checking proofs, discovering proofs, and writing proofs; the student will also start to become familiar with various constructions of advanced mathematics.
• Computer Restrictions: graphic calculator TI-83 or TI-83+.
• Activities: the student will practice each outcome via the homework given in the textbook and online.
• Evaluation: the student achievement of each outcome will be assessed via:
• participation: $5\%$,
• quizzes: $30\%$,
• midterm: $25\%$,
• final exam: $40\%$,

i.e., the total score is the following weighted average of the five scores: $$\text{TOTAL }= .05 \times P + .30\times Q + .25\times M + .40\times F.$$
