Summary: Prompting readers to do mathematics, not merely read about it, this proactive book has users reading and writing proofs at the outset. Complete proofs are given from the start, and coverage begins with elementary mathematics to allow focus on the writing and reading of proofs without the distraction of absorbing new ideas simultaneously.
  • Contains material that is familiar to calculus readers (i.e., inducti
    on, binomial theorem, polygonal, using the Diophantine parametrization of the circle by rational functions to solve trigonometric identities, etc.), and engages readers throughout with interesting expositions using history, etymology, and humorous asides.
  • Material is presented as a 'single story' to aid in the subjects progressive growth and development.
