Offering a survey of both discrete and continuous mathematics, Mathematical Thinking begins with the fundamentals of mathematical language and proof techniques such as induction. These are applied to easily-understood questions in elementary number theory and counting. Further techniques of proofs are then developed via fundamental topics in discrete and continuous mathematics. The text can be used for courses emphasizing discrete mathematics, continuous mathematics, or a balance between the two. It contains many engaging examples and stimulating exercises.From the Back Cover:
