'Mathematical Reasoning: Writing and Proof is designed to be a text for the first course in the college mathematics curriculum that introduces students to the pro-cesses of constructing and writing proofs and focuses on the formal development of mathematics. The primary goals of the text are as follows:

To help students learn how to read and understand mathematical definitions and proofs;

To help students learn how to construct mathematical proofs;

To help students learn how to write mathematical proofs according to ac-cepted guidelines so that their work and reasoning can be understood by others; and

To provide students with material that will be needed for their further study of mathematics.'
