Math proofs demystified

Author: Stan Gibilisco
Publisher: New York : McGraw-Hill, ©2005.
Series: '">McGraw-Hill "Demystified" series.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Almost every student has to study some sort of mathematical proofs, whether it be in geometry, trigonometry, or with higher-level topics. In addition, mathematical theorems have become an interesting course for many students outside of the mathematical arena, purely for the reasoning and logic that is needed to complete them. Therefore, it is not uncommon to have philosophy and law students grappling with proofs.  Read more...
