A Introduction to Proofs and the Mathematical Vernacular

2009
Number of pages: 123

Description:
The students taking this course have completed a standard technical calculus sequence. We now want them to start thinking in terms of properties of mathematical objects and logical deduction, and to get them used to writing in the customary language of mathematics. Another goal is to train students to read more involved proofs such as they may encounter in textbooks and journal articles.
