Mathematical Proofs: A Transition to Advanced Mathematics, 3rd Edition

Book Description

Proofs: A Transition to Advanced , Third Edition, prepares students for the more abstract mathematics courses that follow calculus. Appropriate for self-study or for use in the classroom, this text introduces students to proof techniques, analyzing proofs, and proofs of their own. Written in a clear, conversational style, this book provides a solid introduction to such topics as relations, functions, and cardinalities of sets, as well as the theoretical aspects of fields such as , abstract , and group theory. It is also a great reference text that students can look back to when or reading proofs in their more advanced courses.
