The Nuts and Bolts of Proofs instructs students on the primary basic logic of mathematical proofs, showing how proofs of mathematical statements work. The text provides basic core techniques of how to read and write proofs through examples. The basic mechanics of proofs are provided for a methodical approach in gaining an understanding of the fundamentals to help students reach different results. A variety of fundamental proofs demonstrate the basic steps in the construction of a proof and numerous examples illustrate the method and detail necessary to prove various kinds of theorems. New chapter on proof by contradiction New updated proofs A full range of accessible proofs Symbols indicating level of difficulty help students understand whether a problem is based on calculus or linear algebra Basic terminology list with definitions at the beginning of the text

Der größte Stolperstein in den ersten Semestern eines Informatik- oder Ingenieur­studiums ist für viele Studienanfänger die Mathematik. Die zunächst ungewohnte mathematische Notation sowie die konsequente Art, eine Behauptung durch einen Beweis zu begründen, stellt sich oft wie ein Eintreten in eine neue, bisher nicht bekannte Welt dar. Hier will dieser Leitfaden helfen und die Studierenden während der ersten Semester begleiten. Die Darstellung orientiert sich an den Grundbedürfnissen der neuen Bachelor/Master-Studiengänge und schlägt eine Brücke quer über die eigentlichen Fachvorlesungen. Insbesondere soll es die Quervernetzung des Wissens – in Bezug auf spezifische Informatikthemen – erleichtern.

Research on teaching and learning proof and proving has expanded in recent decades. This reflects the growth of mathematics education research in general, but also an increased emphasis on proof in mathematics education. This development is a welcome one for those interested in the topic, but also poses a challenge, especially to teachers and new scholars. It has become more and more difficult to get an overview of the field and to identify the key concepts used in research on proof and proving. This book is intended to help teachers, researchers and graduate students to overcome the difficulty of getting an overview of research on proof and proving. It reviews the key findings and concepts in research on proof and proving, and embeds them in a contextual frame that allows the reader to make sense of the sometimes contradictory statements found in the literature. It also provides examples from current research that explore how larger patterns in reasoning and argumentation provide insight into teaching and learning.
