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

For the mathematics enthusiast of any age or level of sophisitcation, this stimulating treasury of unusual math problems offers unlimited opportunity for mind-biggling recreation. Carles W. Trigg, Dean Emeritus and Professor Emeritus at Los Angeles City College and one of the country's best-known problemists, has compiled nearly 300 mathematical brainteasers from the field of of arithmetic, algebra, plane and solid geometry, trigonometry, number theory, and such general recreational mathematics and dissections, cryptarithms and magic squares. The object of each problem is to find the quickest, most elegant solution - they are often unorthodox and there is usually and element of surprise in each. Ranging from the simple to complex, problems are both original with the author and the work of over 100 other qualified mathematicians. Most are rarely seen or entirely new; all challenge the reader to devise solutions more elegant than the ones provided.
