This course is intended to provide an introduction to the conceptual basis underlying high school mathematics. Emphasis will be placed on the in-depth understanding of fundamental mathematical ideas and the associated modes of reasoning and proof rather than on superficial coverage of many topics. The course will also help bridge the conceptual gap between the pre-calculus/calculus sequence and more advanced courses in mathematics by fostering the mathematical maturity necessary for success in those courses.
