'… we can warmly advise this excellent book for those who need to get acquainted with or must teach course on formalism and proof techniques.' Acta Scientiarum MathematicarumFrom the Publisher:
Many students have trouble the first time they take a mathematics course in which proofs play a significant role. This textbook will prepare students to make the transition from solving problems to proving theorems by teaching them the techniques needed to read and write proofs. The book begins with the basic concepts of logic and set theory, to familiarise students with the language of mathematics and how it is interpreted. These concepts are used as the basis for a step-by-step breakdown of the most important techniques used in constructing proofs. The author shows how complex proofs are built up from these smaller steps, using detailed 'scratchwork' sections to expose the machinery of proofs about the natural numbers, relations, functions and infinite sets. Numerous exercises give students the opportunity to construct their own proofs. No background beyond standard high school mathematics is assumed. This book will be useful to anyone interested in logic and proofs: computer scientists, philosophers, linguists, and of course mathematicians.

Countries in the Latin America and the Caribbean region (LAC) have invested heavily in primary education over the past 10 years. International studies of achievement, however, show that LAC countries still perform significantly worse than those in the developed world and worse than many developing countries in Asia. This report reviews selected issues and progress to date in the LAC region and makes recommendations for the future. The paper recommends strategies for managing three elements that are identified as fundamental for improving primary education: increasing the provision of pre-schooling, making textbooks and teaching materials available, and changing teachers' behavior through new incentives and techniques. The volume includes tables, figures, and more than nine case studies. Also available in Spanish: (ISBN 0-8213-2986-3) Stock No. 12986. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0521446635
