Coursework
General Description:
This class is about reading and writing mathematics: consider it an introductory
language course. The nouns will be mathematical definitions, the sentences will be mathematical propositions
and the grammar will be logic. Putting this all together (and with lots of practice), we will learn how to read
and write proofs. At times the ideas we concern ourselves with might seem irrelevant, pedantic or obscure,
but it is precisely this attention to detail which makes mathematics the uniquely powerful language it is. To
get to the views on the top floor of mathematics, sometimes one must first toil in the basement.
This is the end of the preview.
