Elements of Mathematics, Book 1: Introductory Logic.
Exner, Robert; And Others
One of 12 books developed for use with the core material (Book O) of the Elements of Mathematics Program, this text covers material well beyond the scope of the usual secondary mathematics sequences. These materials are designed for highly motivated students with strong verbal abilities; mathematical theories and ideas are developed through problem situations and explanatory materials. In this volume, the logical connectives are defined, and the rules of formal reasoning are developed. Several methods of proof are presented, and the universal and existential quantifiers are introduced. The book ends with discussions of the difference between proof and demonstration and the role of logic in mathematics, and the exploration of a small axiomatic system. (SD)
