I'm curious if it is common for the first semester analysis courses not to cover differentiation and integration. This seems a bit odd to me, but I'm sure some others on this forum have more extensive experience.
Definitely a very strange situation.

I did have an analysis course which, I think but might be recalling incorrectly, failed to cover it in the first semester, instead focusing on things like sequences, limits, and continuity, with such diversions as the central limit theorem and other ancillary stuff. I think differentiation and integration was covered in the second semester of the year long course.
