Question on Proofs

  1. Jun 15, 2011 #1
    I'm currently in the middle of the Calc I-III string and I was wondering how much time I should dedicate to studying the proofs, if any time at all. I'm a physics major but I do plan on going on in math after I've taken all of the general curricula because I intend to pursue theory.

    If you're going to pursue mathematics, then I'd suggest spending a lot of time on the proofs. It are the simple proofs now that prepare you for the hard proofs later on.
    The best thing you can do is not looking at the book and trying to find the proofs yourself. This takes a lot of time, but can be very rewarding! :smile:
