To supplement the course in single variable calculus with theory for which there is no room within standard course. The course is meant for beginning students who already mastered large parts of the standard course.
Apart from some fixed point theorem no new methods for calculations are obtained, but many of the methods and more abstract points of view that are introduced to carry out proofs that are left out of the standard calculus course make it easier to see patterns and analogies in later courses.
The new ways of thinking and the concepts give the student a better capability to creatively attack new problems.
