The transition from studying calculus in schools to studying mathematical analysis at university is notoriously difficult. In this second edition of Numbers and Functions, Dr Burn invites the student reader to tackle each of the key concepts in turn, progressing from experience through a structured sequence of several hundred problems to concepts, definitions and proofs of classical real analysis. The sequence of problems, which all have solutions supplied, draws students into constructing definitions and theorems for themselves. This natural development is informed and complemented by historical insight. The novel approach to rigorous analysis offered here is designed to enable students to grow in confidence and skill and thus overcome the traditional difficulties.
