Description:
This free undergraduate textbook provides an introduction to proofs, logic, sets, functions, and other fundamental topics of abstract mathematics. It is designed to be the textbook for a bridge course that introduces undergraduates to abstract mathematics, but it is also suitable for independent study by undergraduates (or mathematically mature high-school students), or for use as a very inexpensive supplement to undergraduate courses in any field of abstract mathematics.

A Gentle Introduction to the Art of MathematicsA Gentle Introduction to the Art of Mathematics
by Joseph Fields - Southern Connecticut State University
The point of this book is to help you with the transition from doing math at an elementary level (concerned mostly with solving problems) to doing math at an advanced level (which is much more concerned with axiomatic systems and proving statements).
