Method of teaching and learning 
This module will be delivered by a combination of formal lectures and tutorials.

The real numbers: ordered field axioms, Cantor’s form of the completeness axiom, countable and uncountable sets, supremum, the Property of the Supremum.

Elementary functions: polynomials and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions.

Topology of the Real Line: accumulation points, open and closed sets, compact sets, Bolzano-Weierstrass’s Theorem.

Limits and continuity: definition of limit, algebra of limits, definition of continuity, continuity of the elementary functions, algebra of continuous functions, classification of discontinuities.

Properties of the continuous functions: extrema, relative extrema, Weierstrass’s Theorem, Bolzano’s Theorem, Intermediate Value Theorem, monotone functions.
