Publisher: California State University, Fresno

Description:
Proofs are the heart of mathematics. If you are a math major, then you must come to terms with proofs--you must be able to read, understand and write them. What is the secret? What magic do you need to know? The short answer is: there is no secret, no mystery, no magic. All that is needed is some common sense and a basic understanding of a few trusted and easy to understand techniques.
