How to Read and Do Proofs : An Introduction to Mathematical Thought Processes Paperback / softback
by Daniel Solow
This text makes a great supplement and provides a systematic approach for teaching undergraduate and graduate students how to read, understand, think about, and do proofs.
The approach is to categorize, identify, and explain (at the student's level) the various techniques that are used repeatedly in all proofs, regardless of the subject in which the proofs arise. How to Read and Do Proofs also explains when each technique is likely to be used, based on certain key words that appear in the problem under consideration.
Doing so enables students to choose a technique consciously, based on the form of the problem.
