In Spring 2022 we conducted the ‘Mathematics in Transit’ project. In this project a team of teachers and researchers from post-16 schools, the Southampton Education School and the School of Mathematics, explored curriculum materials to find the topic that would be most helped with a supporting booklet. The most useful topic was ‘proof’. This booklet is aimed at students interested in learning more about proof and different types of proof. In this booklet, we go through what is a proof, how to construct a proof, and different types/methods of proof. Click the cover page to download the PDF file of the book.
The booklet has made use of the extensive SMP archives at the University of Southampton and is accompanied by a website with the solutions to the exercises provided here: http://blog.soton.ac.uk/mshe/solutions-mit-proof-booklet/
