Unit 5: Mathematical Induction
In this unit, you will prove propositions about an infinite set of positive integers. Mathematical induction is a technique used to formulate all such proofs. The term recursion refers to a method of defining sequences of numbers, functions, and other objects. The term mathematical induction refers to a method of proving properties of such recursively defined objects.
Completing this unit should take you approximately 4 hours.
