MAT-2020 Mathematical Reasoning

3 credits

Prerequisite: MAT-1531.

You've found enough answers to odd-numbered questions, and checked them in the back of the book! It's time to learn deeper mathematics, and to think like a mathematician. In this class students will learn what constitutes a mathematical proof, a variety of classical proof techniques, and apply them in numerous mathematical contexts such as set theory, graph theory, number theory, geometry, and others as chosen by the instructor.
