Book Description

Proofs play a central role in advanced mathematics and theoretical computer science, yet many students struggle the first time they take a course in which proofs play a significant role.

This 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.

It helps students transition from solving problems to proving theorems by teaching them the techniques needed to read and write proofs.

  • Book of Proof, 3rd Edition (Richard H. Hammack)

    This book is an introduction to the language and standard proof methods of mathematics. It lays a foundation for more theoretical courses such as topology, analysis and abstract algebra.

  • Proof, Sets, and Logic (M. Randall Holmes)

    Addressing the importance of constructing and understanding mathematical proofs, this book introduces key concepts from logic and set theory as well as the fundamental definitions of algebra to prepare readers for further study in the field of mathematics.

  • Mathematical Reasoning: Writing and Proof (Ted Sundstrom)

    Help students to develop logical thinking skills and to think abstractly, and write mathematical proofs using standard methods of mathematical proof including direct proofs, proof by contradiction, mathematical induction, case analysis, counterexamples.

  • Language, Proof and Logic (Jon Barwise, et al)

    This book covers first-order language in a method appropriate for first and second courses in logic, and is specially useful to undergraduates of philosophy, computer science, mathematics, and linguistics.

  • An Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning (Peter J. Eccles)

    The purpose of this book is to introduce the basic ideas of mathematical proof to students embarking on university mathematics. It eases students into the rigors of university mathematics.

  • Logical Reasoning (Bradley H. Dowden)

    The goal of this book is to improve your logical-reasoning skills. Your most important critical thinking skill is your skill at making judgments-not snap judgments that occur in the blink of an eye, but those that require careful reasoning.

  • Math Alive (Ingrid Daubechies, et at)

    Mathematics has profoundly changed our world, from banking to listening to music. This course is designed for those who haven't had college mathematics but would like to understand some of the mathematical concepts behind important modern applications.
