Mathematical thinking does not have to be about mathematics at all, but parts of mathematics provide the ideal target domain to learn how to think that way, and that is the approach taken by this short but valuable book is written primarily for first and second year students of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM /5(). Enderton's "Mathematical Introduction to Logic" [1] is one of the best books I've ever read not just one of the best math books, one of the best books. There's a very clear, simple presentation of propositional and first-order logic, from the.

Number Theory Through Inquiry and the new Katz-Starbird book Distilling Ideas: An Introduction to Mathematical Thinking are books in the newly created MAA Textbook Subseries called "Mathematics Through Inquiry." This subseries contains materials that foster an Inquiry Based Learning strategy of instruction that encourages students to discover. At the intersection of mathematics, computer science, and philosophy, mathematical logic examines the power and limitations of formal mathematical thinking. In this expansion of Leary’s user-friendly 1st edition, readers with no previous study in the field are introduced to the basics of model theory, proof theory, and computability theory.

Students must prove all of the theorems in this undergraduate-level text, which features extensive outlines to assist in study and comprehension. The focus is point-set topology, with an emphasis on continuity, and the final chapter explores homotopy and the fundamental group. Numerous hints and figures illuminate the text. edition.
