F17CC Introduction to University Mathematics

Prof Mark Lawson

Course co-ordinator(s): Prof Mark Lawson (Edinburgh).


The goal of this course is to provide a bridge between school and university mathematics. In particular, the central role of proofs in mathematics will be emphasized throughout the course. Proofs tell us why things are true; results in mathematics are not the result of belief or experiment but of proof. There is some overlap with A-level and Advanced Highers, though I assume you have neither, and there will be elements of revision but the tone of the course is different.
