Book of Proof
Ancillary Materials

  • Here is a link for Richard Hammack's page for VCU's MATH 300, the course that Book of Proof was originally written for. The page has a syllabus, calendar, sample tests, etc.
  • Here is a link to an IBL-style workbook to accompany Book of Proof, written by Prof. Justin Wright (Plymouth University).

Request for Sample Tests and Additional Exercises

I'd like to post more sample tests, and I also plan to build an on-line bank of additional exercises for Book of Proof here. If you have material that you'd like to contribute, please send it to me. My idea is to post some exercises with solutions and some without solutions.  (I believe it is vitally important for students to be exposed to plenty of problems with no ready solutions. Life is full of problems with solutions that can't be looked up, and math should be the same way!)

I see the purpose of a sample test as more of a study guide, so it would be good to have both a blank and solved version of each test. However, I will also accept tests without solutions.
  1. If possible, please submit PDF files for tests. I can also work with LaTeX code.
  2. Please indicate exactly which chapters and/or sections are (or are not) represented on each test.
  3. If possible, please submit new exercises (and solutions, if applicable) in both LaTeX and a PDF.
  4. Clearly indicate which Chapter (or section) each exercise belongs to.
  5. I'd like to maintain a list of contributors. Let me know if you prefer not to be listed.
