Description

This course is designed to serve as an introduction to the methods and concepts of abstract mathematics. A typical student entering this course has substantial experience in using complex mathematical (calculus) calculations to solve physical or geometrical problems but is inexperienced at analyzing carefully the content of definitions and the logical flow of ideas which underlie and justify these calculations. Although the topics discussed here are quite distinct from those of calculus, an important goal of the course is to introduce the student to this type of analysis. Much of the reading, homework exercises, and exams consist of theorems (propositions, lemmas, etc.) and their proofs. Math 217, or equivalent, required as background.

Class Format:

This class is an Inquiry Based Learning class, so almost all of your time will be spent working through problems with the other students!
