MATH 3150 Mathematical Reasoning

Introduction to formal mathematical reasoning processes. Emphasis is on proving theorems concerning sets and numbers. Concept of proof is stressed. This is a transition course for students going from calculus to more advanced mathematics courses. The course contains the analytical and logical tools necessary for thinking like a mathematician. The topics include a natural progression from logic to methods of proof to set theory, relations, and functions. The course serves as a good introduction to advanced mathematics - 4 lecture hours. Prerequisite: MATH 1600 or consent of the instructor.
