An Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning (Peter J. Eccles)

This book's objective is to present the fundamental concepts of mathematical proof to students beginning their university mathematics studies.

The focus is on assisting the reader in comprehending, creating proofs, and producing understandable mathematical writing. There are more than 250 problems total, with plenty of routine exercises to assist the reader to become comfortable with the fundamental concepts as well as questions to engage and challenge even the most gifted student.

This book prepares readers for the difficulties of college mathematics. The focus is on comprehending, building proofs, and producing intelligible mathematics. To do this, the author looks at set theory, combinatorics, and number theory—areas that may not be in a novice mathematician's toolbox yet contain many basic concepts.

This information demonstrates how common concepts can be expressed rigorously, offers instances of many fundamental proving techniques, and includes some of the greatest classic proofs ever. The subject of mathematics is shown in the book as evolving constantly. There is content that satisfies the requirements of readers from a variety of backgrounds.

In addition to routine exercises that will help the reader become familiar with the fundamental concepts, the more than 250 problems also feature questions that will intrigue and challenge even the most gifted student.
