- Mathematics 2155F is an introduction to the fundamental concepts necessary for the study of mathematics. The course focusses initially on the notion of proof and elementary reasoning, then proceeds to the discussion of the fundamental mathematical concepts. The course is an interesting blend of abstract mathematical ideals and concrete computation (although perhaps the computations will not be those you are already acquainted with from your earlier mathematical studies). Weekly assignments will allow you to receive regular feedback on your progress in mastering the ideas and the computations.
- There is a new edition of the text (the 6th edition) that will be in the bookstore by September 10. There is also a solution manual that should be in the book store by September 14 (if not before). The solution manual contains the solutions to every recommended exercise, and as well, contains the midterm and final exams, with solutions, for 2012, 2013, and 2014.
