Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews: "Extending the Frontiers of Mathematics: Inquiries into Proof and Argumentation a ] offers an attractive and very plausible approach. The level of sophistication seems just about right for first or second-year college students. a ] Although most students who might use this book would have studied calculus, the text is useful for a broader group because only one or two modules require any knowledge of calculus. This is a carefully conceived and well-thought-out approach to the a ~introduction to proofa (TM) course, and ita (TM)s worth a careful look." (William J. Satzer, MathDL, July, 2007)
