Description

For a one-quarter/semester, sophomore-level transitional ("bridge") course that supplies background for students going from calculus to the more abstract, upper-division mathematics courses. Also appropriate as a supplement for junior-level courses such as abstract algebra or real analysis.Focused on "What Every Mathematician Needs to Know," this text provides material necessary for students to succeed in upper-division mathematics courses, and more importantly, the analytical tools necessary for thinking like a mathematician. It begins with a natural progression from elementary logic, methods of proof, and set theory, to relations and functions; then provides application examples, theorems, and student projects.show more
