MXB102 Abstract Mathematical Reasoning

Unit synopsis

Mathematics is, at its heart, axiomatic: each new mathematical statement follows logically from previous statements, and ultimately derives from the axiomatic foundations.  This unit establishes the foundations of abstract mathematical reasoning, introducing the view of mathematics as axiomatic and emphasising the role of proof in mathematics.  Fundamental concepts and tools including logic and sets, number systems, sequences and series, limits and continuity are covered.  The tools established in this unit will serve as a foundation throughout your mathematics studies.
