This book will teach you how to read and do proofs, describes all of the fundamental techniques used in mathematical proofs and illustrates each with an example requiring only high school mathematics. Simplifies complex proofs, by showing how a complicated proof can be understood as a sequence of applications of the individual techniques. Unravels the mystery of 'condensed' proofs that are found in textbooks and journal articles by teaching you to identify which techniques are being used and how they are being applied in the particular proof. Gets you started in the right direction by showing how the form of the problem under consideration can often be used to choose a successful proof technique. A rare find that is so very helpful and easy to follow! *9BC2
