#### Additional product details

Passage to Abstract Mathematics facilitates the transition from introductory mathematics courses to the more abstract work that occurs in advanced courses. The text covers logic, proof, numbers, sets, induction, functions, and more—material which instructors of upper-level courses often presume their students have already mastered but is generally missing from lower-level courses. Students learn how to read and write mathematics—especially proofs—the way that mathematicians do. The text emphasizes the use of complete, correct definitions and mathematical syntax.

¿

The text assumes students have taken at least two semesters of calculus.¿ Occasionally, the authors also refer to multivariable calculus and linear algebra, but these are not essential to the understanding of the text.

CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
