**A Introduction to Proofs and the Mathematical Vernacular**

by Martin Day

**Publisher**: Virginia Tech 2016**Number of pages**: 147

**Description**:

The students taking this course have completed a standard technical calculus sequence. We now want them to start thinking in terms of properties of mathematical objects and logical deduction, and to get them used to writing in the customary language of mathematics. Another goal is to train students to read more involved proofs such as they may encounter in textbooks and journal articles.
