Proof with guiding text
Topic Teaching Tip(s): General principles of mathematical communication | Guiding the audience through the content | Types of proof & proof-writing strategies
This annotated proof illustrates how to format a theorem and proof and how to use guiding text to communicate the structure of the proof. Comments about formatting assume that students may not be using LaTeX. The text is an excerpt from the lecture notes for M.I.T.'s Principles of Applied Mathematics, on the topic of the pigeonhole principle.
