Analysis for High School Teachers

Filed under: lecture,Rothschild course "Analysis for high school teachers" — Sergei Yakovenko @ 8:58

The New Academic Year announcement

In the new academic year 2011/2 (Anno 5772, שנה התשע”ב) I will again teach this course. As before, the primary goal of the course is to give the explanation of the fundamental mathematical concepts that often remain concealed behind drilling the “calculus skills”.

This blog will serve a platform for regular upload of the course material (lecture notes, problems for self-control, discussion of relevant issues. The students taking the course (as well as the entire Internet community accidentally hitting these pages) is invited to the interactive discussions. If you have questions, post them. If you have answers to the posted questions, post them even faster. If you spotted an error or an obscure place in the lecture notes, – notify me and other people here. Feel free to write in whatever language you feel more comfortable with, – most of the readers are multilingual, though the (simplified) English seems to be the least common denominator.

The previous release of this course is available on this blog under the same tag. It will be slightly changed in search of higher clarity, yet you can compare and use whatever like more. Unlike the Scripture, mathematical exposition is by no means canonically endorsed.

Besides these notes, you are invited to read anything you like on the subject. One of the books which I absolutely loved when I was a high school student, is available here (warning: 21 Mb in pdf format, a semi-legal scan strictly for your personal pleasure 😉

I Look forward for your active participation!
