This is an honors version of Math 114. It
will cover the material in greater depth than that course, with more
challenging problems and more attention to definitions and to the
reasons behind the results. Like Math 114, the course assumes
familiarity with the material in Math 103 and Math 104. Math
116 is followed by Math 260, an honors version of Math 240. The
precise sequence of topics within each semester will differ somewhat
between the Math 114-240 sequence and the Math 116-260 sequence; but
over the course of the two semesters, the honors sequence will cover
the usual material and more. Students who wish to take further
mathematics courses beyond Math 116 and 260 will be prepared to take
either of two sequences in analysis/advanced calculus (Math 360-361 or
Math 508-509), and either of two sequences in abstract
and linear algebra (Math 370-371 or Math 502-503).
