Life of
Fred High School Math Five Days : Set Theory, Modern Algebra, Abstract Arithmetic, Topology Rather than a course of study, this book is a sampler of advanced math for students who love math and Fred and want to preview courses they may take later. Upper division (college junior/senior) pure math is much different than calculus. No “word problems,” no formulas to memorize, no concrete applications—just puzzles to solve. Instead of learning procedures, students create definitions, theorems, and proofs. These are the first five days of Fred’s teaching set theory, modern algebra, abstract arithmetic, and topology. Each of the 139 assignments/puzzles/questions that he gives his students calls for creativity rather than doing drill work. Some of these can be done in a minute. Some will take several hours to complete. They are all meant to be enjoyed. The first day of set theory: cardinality of a set, set builder notation, naive set theory, modus
ponens, seven possible reasons to give in a math proof, the high school geometry postulates are inconsistent, the proof that every triangle is isosceles, normal sets. The first day of modern algebra: definition of a math theory, six properties of equality, formal definition of a binary operation, formal definition of a function, definition of a group, right cancellation law, left inverses, commutative law. The first day of abstract arithmetic: circular definitions, unary operations, the successor function, natural numbers, the five Peano postulates, mathematical induction. The first day of topology: topology is all about friendship, listed and counting subsets, open sets, the discrete topology, the three axioms of a topology, models for a topology, open intervals. By the fifth day Fred will have covered the
SchröderBernstein theorem (set theory), proved Lagrange’s theorem for subgroups of any group (modern algebra), defined the real numbers based only on the concept of “adding one” (abstract arithmetic), and explored continuous images of compact sets (topology).

As usual, Fred has adventures. Duck comes back. Fred is pressured to buy life insurance for his wife (Fred isn't married). Fred "beeps" the nose of 128 lions. Suitable as a high school text (first six chapters) or as a college text (all 16 chapters). Sentences in logic. Connectives. Inductive reasoning. Seventeen logic
fallacies. Predicate logic. Syllogisms. Quantifiers. Proofs in predicate logic. Direct and indirect proofs. Set theory as a predicate logic structure.
