How to Study as a Mathematics Major, Paperback / softback Book

How to Study as a Mathematics Major Paperback / softback

Description

Every year, thousands of students in the USA declare mathematics as their major.

Many are extremely intelligent and hardworking. However, even the best will encounter challenges, because upper-level mathematics involves not only independent study and learning from lectures, but also a fundamental shift from calculation to proof.

This shift is demanding but it need not be mysterious - research has revealed many insights into the mathematical thinking required, and this book translates these into practical advice for a student audience.

It covers every aspect of studying as a mathematics major, from tackling abstract intellectual challenges to interacting with professors and making good use of study time.

Part 1 discusses the nature of upper-level mathematics, and explains how students can adapt and extend theirexisting skills in order to develop good understanding.

Part 2 covers study skills as these relate to mathematics, and suggests practical approaches to learning effectively while enjoying undergraduate life. As the first mathematics-specific study guide, this friendly, practical text is essential reading for any mathematics major.
