##### Description

For courses in undergraduate Analysis (an easy one) and Transition to Advanced Mathematics.

This text helps fill in the groundwork students need to succeed in real analysis—often considered the most difficult course in the undergraduate curriculum. By introducing logic and by emphasizing the structure and nature of the arguments used, Lay helps students move carefully from computationally oriented courses to abstract mathematics with its emphasis on proofs. Clear expositions and examples, helpful practice problems, numerous drawings, and selected hints/answers make this text readable and student-oriented, and teacher- friendly.
