Course: MATH 320. Foundations of Higher Mathematics (3)
Prerequisite: Completion of MATH 150B with a grade of “C” or better. The goal of this course is to help students transition from a primarily computational mode of doing mathematics to a more conceptual mode. The emphasis will be on proofs, which are taught in the context of elementary number theory, combinatorics and analysis; the language of sets, relations, order, equivalence classes, functions and cardinality is introduced. Students are expected to write large numbers of proofs and communicate mathematical ideas clearly.
