    Ask someone at Kansas to explain the difference between the two courses. Do you have an academic advisor who is a faculty member in the department? It may turn out that they're pretty much the same. In the courses you've already taken in calculus. If you are looking for a basic book on how to develop formal mathematical proofs, here are a couple of options that I've tried: * Daniel Solow's How to Read and Do Proofs [1]. It's a little idiosyncratic (I have never seen his method of "forward.

Throughout the book, the author introduces the reader to various subjects in abstract mathematics and provides some appropriately basic theorems that are subsequently used in the proofs. 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).

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.

The primary goals of the text are to help students:Cited by: 5. A book used at my university in a first-year intro to mathematical thinking course is Tamara J. Lakin's The Tools of Mathematical Reasoning. 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.

Bond and Keane explicate the elements of logical, mathematical argument to elucidate the meaning and importance of mathematical rigor.

At upper-division level, the majority of mathematics is presented in an abstract way. This course will train you in understanding and creating abstract mathematics, and it is our hope that you will develop an appreciation for it. Proof The essential concept in higher-level mathematics is that of proof.

Introduction to mathematical arguments (background handout for courses requiring proofs) by Michael Hutchings A mathematical proof is an argument which convinces other people that something is true.

Math isn’t a court of law, so a “preponderance of the evidence” or “beyond any reasonable doubt” isn’t good enough.

In principle. The book I used in my 'proofs' class was "Doing Mathematics: An Introduction to Proofs and Problem Solving" by Steven Galovich, here on Amazon.

The class was called "Mathematical Structures", which is an apt name since the class wasn't solely about learning to prove things.

There also used to be a Linear Algebra course that was rather proof intensive, but they had to take that class down a notch because many engineers took that class as an elective.

$\begingroup$ I don't think many mathematicians ever read a book just on how to do proofs, you just start reading math books and kind of get the idea of proofs as you go.

I suggest just start with a good book on either abstract algebra or real analysis and just start reading from chapter 1 and see if you don't just pick up how it works.
