This book is designed for the sophomore/junior level Introduction to Advanced Mathematics course. Written in a modified R.L. Moore fashion, it offers a unique approach in which readers construct their own understanding. However, while readers are called upon to write their own proofs, they are also encouraged to work in groups. There are few finished proofs contained in the text, but the author offers “proof sketches” and helpful technique tips to help readers as they develop their proof writing skills. This book is most successful in a small, seminar style class.

Logic, Sets, Induction, Relations, Functions, Elementary Number Theory, Cardinality, The Real Numbers

For all readers interested in abstract mathematics.
