5 credits
A careful introduction to the process of constructing mathematical arguments, covering the basic ideas of logic, set theory, number theory, functions and relations. A substantial amount of time will be devoted to looking at important forms of mathematical argument such as direct proof, proof by contradiction, proof by contrapositive, proof by cases, and various forms of proof by induction, including use of the well-ordering axiom. Additional concepts from abstract algebra or analysis may be covered at the discretion of the instructor. Prerequisite(s): MTH 261 .
Grade mode designated on a CRN basis each term. Students should consult current term schedule.
