MATH 3350 Introduction to Mathematical Proof

This course will prepare the student for advanced mathematics courses that require the writing of proofs. It reviews various elementary proof methods and the logical structure underlying them. It examines the formal definitions and basic properties of the mathematical structures that one encounters when constructing proofs, and it recounts famous theorems concerning these structures that every mathematician should know. Students are expected to construct non-routine mathematical proofs independently and to present their work in written form clearly and precisely. Substantial written work is required.
