Written for sophomore/junior level students, this textbook begins with formal proof reasoning and writing, providing an understanding of the underlying language of mathematics. The author then describes deductive mathematical systems where theorems are proved using different mathematical techniques, allowing students to compare and contrast the methods. He covers the role of conjectures along with their proofs and disproof, followed by rational numbers and their properties. He then covers the method used for developing the system of real numbers from rational numbers. The book includes more than 75 examples and more than 600 problems. A solutions manual is available upon qualifying course adoptions.
