I need some advice on proofs in my calculus/analysis course. I just wrote a test and it didn't go anywhere near according to plan. My problem keeps on revolving around how to do proofs of certain claims. Now the proofs for these claims on the test at least were proofs for the most part straight from the textbook. I put in the hrs studying the material, but I never really "memorized" the proofs from the book. It's as if I just can't get over this hurdle as I try over and over again it's like a huge block that's preventing me from getting to another level. I'm just out and out frustrated at the moment. There's obviously something I'm doing wrong in terms of how i'm studying for this course but I can't seem to figure out what it is. It's not lack of enthusiasm or effort I put in the time, maybe it's approach or trying to understand the wrong things. I don't know. Some advice would be appreciated.
