## Study Notes

### Subdisciplines of Modern Mathematics

• Modern mathematics is divided into several subdisciplines, including algebra, analysis, geometry, and number theory
• These subdisciplines are further divided into specific areas, such as abstract algebra, real analysis, and differential geometry

### Mathematical Activity

• The primary method used in mathematical activity is proof, which involves using logical and systematic reasoning to establish the truth of a mathematical statement

### Mathematical Proofs

• Mathematical proofs consist of a series of logical steps that establish the truth of a mathematical statement
• These steps are based on previously established results, known as theorems, and follow the rules of logic and mathematical reasoning

### Objects of Mathematical Proofs

• The objects of mathematical proofs in modern mathematics include theorems, lemmas, and corollaries
• These objects are statements that are proven to be true through the use of logical and systematic reasoning

### Role of Axioms

• Axioms play a fundamental role in modern mathematics, serving as the foundation for mathematical theories and theorems
• Axioms are self-evident truths that are accepted as true without proof, and are used as the basis for deductive reasoning in mathematical proofs
