Proof in Mathematics: an Introduction

Description 
This is a small (98 page) textbook designed to teach mathematics and computer science students the basics of how to read and construct proofs.
Why do students take the instruction "prove" in examinations to mean "go to the next question"? Because they have not been shown the simple techniques of how to do it. Mathematicians meanwhile generate a mystique of proof, as if it requires an inborn and unteachable genius. True, creating researchlevel proofs does require talent; but reading and understanding the proof that the square of an even number is even is within the capacity of most mortals.
Proof in Mathematics: an Introduction takes a straightforward, no nonsense approach to explaining the core technique of mathematics.
"Mathematics teaches you to think" is often an empty marketing slogan. With this book, it can become a reality.
