**Course description:**
A rigorous treatment of basic real analysis via metric spaces recommended for those who intend to pursue programs
heavily dependent upon graduate level Mathematics. Metric space topics include continuity, compactness, completeness,
connectedness and uniform convergence. Analysis topics include the theory of differentiation, Riemann-Darboux
integration, sequences and series of functions, and interchange of limiting operations. As part of the honors
sequence, this course will be rigorous and abstract.
