*Introduction to Proofs*
is an undergraduate text.
It is Inquiry-Based, sometimes called the Discovery Method or the Moore Method.
It is Freely available.
Highlights
==========
+
Inquiry-based
The text is a sequence of statements for students to prove, along with a few definitions and remarks.
The instructor does not lecture but instead lightly guides as the class works through the material together.
For these students, this is the best way to develop mathematical maturity.
+
Covers needed material
We do parity through arity: number theory to the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic, sets to DeMorgan's Laws,
functions to two-sided inverses, and relations up to equivalences and partitions.
+
No prerequisite
We enroll sophomore Math majors who typically have taken Calculus III and Linear Algebra.
But this background isn't a logical prerequisite, it just ensures that students have some mathematical aptitude.
The material does not presume any college mathematics.
+
Free
You are free to use the text, without cost.
You are free to share it.
This includes the LaTeX source, so if you are an instructor then you can tune the text to your class.
+ Flexibility
The text comes in two presentations, one of which is compact enough to just print and hand out on the first day, which is what I do.
There are a number of other options; see the source.
+ Extras
There is a pack of beamer slides on logic.
These organize the discussions that arise naturally in the first couple of weeks about topics such as the definition of implication.
There is also a pack of slides I show on the first day to introduce students to the class style.
