This is good if the reader desires a survey of math in one book. I would hesitate to recommend this book to anyone, regardless of mathematical background.2/5(1).

Introduction to Mathematical Proofs helps students develop the necessary skills to write clear, correct, and concise proofs. Unlike similar textbooks, this one begins with logic since it is the underlying language of mathematics and the basis of reasoned arguments.5/5(1).

One difference from other introduction to proofs texts is that the proof by induction section is at the end of the text separate from the other proof techniques sections. This text has a natural flow from logic based proofs at the beginning of the text to mathematics based proofs in the middle of the text/5(3).

Book of Proof, Richard Hammack, 2nd ed Available free online. Very good on the basics: if you’re having trouble with reading set notation or how to construct a proof, this book’s for you.

These notes are deliberately pitched at a high level relative to this textbook to provide contrast. Mathematical Reasoning, Ted Sundstrom, 2nd ed 1) proof techniques (and their basis in Logic), and 2) fundamental concepts of abstract mathematics.

We start with the language of Propositional Logic, where the rules for proofs are very straightforward. Adding sets and quanti ers to this yields First-Order Logic, which is the language of modern Size: KB.

Description. For courses in undergraduate Analysis and Transition to Advanced Mathematics. Analysis with an Introduction to Proof, Fifth Edition helps fill in the groundwork students need to succeed in real analysis—often considered the most difficult course in the undergraduate curriculum.

Mathematical Reasoning: Writing and Proof is designed to be a text for the ﬁrst course in the college mathematics curriculum that introduces students to the pro-cesses of constructing and writing proofs and focuses on the formal development of mathematics.

It covers introductory logic, proofs, sets, functions, number theory, relations, finite and infinite sets, and the foundations of analysis. Introduction to Abstract Mathematics focuses on the principles, approaches, and operations involved in abstract mathematics, including metric spaces, sets, axiom systems, and open sentences.

The book first offers information on logic and set theory, natural numbers, and integers and rational numbers. I have used this book as the primary text for such a course twice, a course with two main goals: prepare the student for proof-centric classes like abstract algebra and real analysis, and introduce the student to what the major ought to look like and what mathematics hopes to achieve beyond the calculus/5(6).

The primary purpose of this undergraduate text is to teach students to do mathematical proofs. It enables readers to recognize the elements that constitute an acceptable proof, and it develops their ability to do proofs of routine problems as well as those requiring creative insights.

It captures the essence of abstract mathematics to which seems completely unspoken of in the public education sector. This should be a high school book, not necessarily for Math majors.

I say this not boldly, but out of the simple fact that the questions raised should be taught at a much earlier time in one's by: 3. Algebra permeates all of our mathematical intuitions. In fact the ﬁrst mathematical concepts we ever encounter are the foundation of the subject. Let me summarize the ﬁrst six to seven years of your mathematical education: The concept of Unity.
