Introduction to Proofs is a Free undergraduate text. It is inquiry-based, sometimes called the Moore method or the discovery method. It consists of a sequence of exercises, statements for students to prove, along with a few definitions and remarks.

Proofs are the heart of mathematics. What is the secret? The short answer is: there is no secret, no mystery, no magic. All that is needed is some common sense and a basic understanding of a few trusted and easy to understand techniques.

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).
