An interactive applet and associated web page that show the definition and properties of the bounding box of a polygon or set of points. The bounding box is used in other entries to find area using the so-called box method. The grid, coordinates and calculations can be turned on and off for class problem solving. The applet can be printed in the state it appears on the screen to make handouts. The web page has a full definition of a bounding box when the coordinates of the points defining it are known, and has links to other pages relating to coordinate geometry and a worked example. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com. (less)

This course is designed to introduce the student to the rigorous examination of the real number system and the foundations of calculus. Analysis lies at the heart of the trinity of higher mathematics algebra, analysis, and topology because it is where the other two fields meet. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: Use set notation and quantifiers correctly in mathematical statements and proofs; Use proof by induction or contradiction when appropriate; Define the rational numbers, the natural numbers, and the real numbers, and understand their relationship to one another; Define the well-ordering principle the completeness/supremum property of the real line, and the Archimedean property; Prove the existence of irrational numbers; Define supremum and infimum; Correctly and fluently manipulate expressions with absolute value and state the triangle inequality; Define and identify injective, surjective, and bijective mappings; Name the various cardinalities of sets and identify the cardinality of a given set; Define Euclidean space and vector space and show that Euclidean space is a vector space; Define the complex numbers and manipulate them algebraically; Write equations for lines and planes in Euclidean space; Define a normed linear space, a norm, and an inner product; Define metric spaces, open sets; define open, closed, and bounded sets; define cluster points; define density; Define convergence of sequences and prove or disprove the convergence of given sequences; Prove and use properties of limits; Prove standard results about closures, intersections, and unions of open and closed sets; Define compactness using both open covers and sequences; State and prove the Heine-Borel Theorem; State the Bolzano-Weierstrass Theorem; State and use the Cantor Finite Intersection Property; Define Cauchy sequence and prove that specific sequences are Cauchy; Define completeness and prove that Euclidean space with the standard metric is complete; Show that convergent sequences are Cauchy; Define limit superior and limit inferior; Define convergence of series using the Cauchy criterion and use the comparison, ratio, and root tests to show convergence of series; Define continuity and state, prove, and use properties of limits of continuous functions, including the fact that continuous functions attain extreme values on compact sets; Define divergence of functions to infinity and use properties of infinite limits; State and prove the intermediate value property; Define uniform continuity and show that given functions are or are not uniformly continuous; Give standard examples of discontinuous functions, such as the Dirichlet function; Define connectedness and identify connected and disconnected sets Construct the Cantor ternary set and state its properties; Distinguish between pointwise and uniform convergence; Prove that if a sequence of continuous functions converges uniformly, their limit is also continuous; Define derivatives of real- and extended-real-valued functions; Compute derivatives using the limit definition and prove basic properties of derivatives; State the Mean Value Theorem and use it in proofs; Construct the Riemann Integral and state its properties; State the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and use it in proofs; Define pointwise and uniform convergence of series of functions; Use the Weierstrass M-Test to check for uniform convergence of series; Construct Taylor Series and state Taylor's Theorem; Identify necessary and sufficient conditions for term-by-term differentiation of power series.
