## Study Notes

### Mathematical Activity

• Most mathematical activity involves problem-solving, reasoning, and modeling, often using logical and systematic methods.

### Mathematical Proofs

• Mathematical proofs consist of a series of logical steps, based on already established results, to establish the validity of a mathematical statement or theorem.

### Subdisciplines of Modern Mathematics

• The major subdisciplines of modern mathematics are Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Statistics.

### Entities in Modern Mathematics

• Entities in modern mathematics, such as numbers, geometric shapes, and functions, are stipulated to have certain properties and relationships that can be described and analyzed using mathematical structures and rules.

### Nature of Abstract Objects

• Most abstract objects in modern mathematics, such as groups, rings, and fields, are purely theoretical and exist solely as mental constructs, with no direct physical representation, but are used to model and describe real-world phenomena.
