MAT 261 - Introduction to Abstract Mathematics


Topics covered typically include logic, basic set theory, relations and functions, sequences, limits, cardinality, and algebraic and geometric structures, but may vary somewhat with the instructor. Class size will remain small, not to exceed 20 students. The goal is to enable students to read, critique, construct, and write mathematical proofs. At least 40% of the student’s grade will be based on the quality of written work. Written assignments must present mathematical arguments in a clear, logical manner, using standard mathematical notation as well as correct English grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Students will be given considerable coaching and feedback with preliminary drafts so that submitted final versions of their work will be of acceptable quality.

General Education Requirements: Satisfies the General Education Writing Intensive Requirement.

Prerequisites: A grade of C or better in MAT 127 or permission.
