Aimed at beginners to understand how Math proofs are constructed and how to prove by contradiction from scratch
What you’ll learn
How to prove a statement using contradiction
How proof by contradiction really works
The intuition behind proof by contradiction
Clear understanding of one of the strongest proof techniques in mathematics
Understanding of what a rational, irrational, primes, and other mathematical terms mean
Very basic understanding of algebra
Have you always been intrigued by mathematical proofs and how they are constructed? Have you always had the misconception that only Math geniuses can do proofs? Well now you can understand and write maths proofs too!
This course is an introduction for beginners to proofs and helps you understand what proofs are really about. We start by one of the most famous proofs techniques known as proof by contradiction. We first explain what proof by contradiction is and then we start going right into some exercises!
We will prove several math statements in the course. For example, I will show how you can prove that the square root of 2 is irrational or that there is an infinite number of primes!
By the end of this course, you should be fairly familiar with proofs by contradictions and should be able to embark on your journey with proofs since you will have a solid foundation of how proof by contradiction, a very basic but strong proof method, really works.
Who this course is for
Anyone interested in mathematical proofs
Anyone interested in becoming a math or computer science major
Anyone who wishes to understand mathematical proofs and their elegance
