Dec 27, Vincent Barr marked it as to-read Shelves: This should be required reading for all math majors and those who m to learn how to write formal proofs.
You don’t need any special knowledge to read it, so you should be fine. I taught an intro to proof writing course using this book and I thought it was excellent. To give students the opportunity to construct their own proofs, this new edition contains over new exercises, selected solutions, and an introduction to Proof Designer software.
Guides you step by step until you write a perfect proof, providing different methods. There are also many useful interesting exercises and many suggestions and full solutions in the back of the book. Mueller Limited preview – From Calculus to Analysis. The exercises are great, though they are raniel and can take a considerable amount of time to work through. How to write a great review.
