Book Description

Passage to Abstract Mathematics facilitates the transition from introductory mathematics courses to the more abstract work that occurs in advanced courses. This text covers logic, proofs, numbers, sets, induction, functions, and more–material which instructors of upper-level courses often presume their students have already mastered but are in fact missing from lower-level courses. Students will learn how to read and write mathematics–especially proofs–the way that mathematicians do. The text emphasizes the use of complete, correct definitions and mathematical syntax.
