This book is part of the Life of Fred College Series.

This book covers Real Analysis, a topic studied by math majors in college. This math is more advanced than what most non-majors ever see, but it still has Fred, and he has a very good time with his favorite topic. Real Analysis is the study of real numbers, functions using the real numbers, and the properties of the real numbers and their functions. It is heavy on theorems and proofs. Calculus is a requirement for studying this topic, and Life of Fred- Five Days to Upper Division Math is recommended.
Topics include-
  • The Real Numbers
  • Sequences
  • Series
  • Tests for Series Convergence
  • Limits and Continuity
  • Derivatives
  • The Riemann Integral
  • Sequences of Functions
  • Series of Functions
  • Two Cow-Moving Theorems
  • Looking Ahead to Topics beyond a First Course in Real Analysis.
Life of Fred is a series of math books that break the old pattern of drill and kill. Instead of nothing but dry exposition and endless drill exercises, they contain fun stories about Fred Gauss, a child prodigy math genius. During his hilarious adventures, he encounters situations that call for solving math problems. Dr. Stanley Schmidt wrote these to make math come alive with humor, clear explanations, and silly illustrations that will make math a fun subject. Your children actually want to read these books. The stories carry on through the exercises, leading the student through them.  Many of the books have a series of quizzes called Bridges every few chapters. Passing a quiz means the student is ready for the next chapter. Some books have all the problem solutions in them, while others have separate answer keys or companions. The textbooks are all hardbound, the answer keys are comb-bound.
