The transition to upper-level math courses is often difficult because of the shift in emphasis from computation (in calculus) to abstraction and proof (in junior/senior courses). This book provides guidance with the reading and writing of short proofs, and incorporates a gradual increase in abstraction as the chapters progress. This helps students prepare to meet the challenges of future courses such as abstract algebra and elementary analysis.

Review quote

"...a wonderful book where classical material (theorems and their proofs) is nicely balanced with various modern computer-related tools"
--Sergei Bezrukov, University of Wisconsin

"I would definitely choose Andrilli/Hecker over Lay's book...The range of exercises is excellent..."
--Vania Mascioni, Ball State University

"...between the present versions of Andrilli/Hecker and Johnson/Reiss/Arnold, I would have little difficulty in deciding on Andrilli/Hecker."
--John Lawlor, University of Vermont

"...more rigorous than Anton/Rorres. The presentation is much more clear than Nicolson...beneficial to the Instructor and the students..."
--Ali Miri, University of Toronto
