I am helping develop an open-source course and text on mathematical proof and argument. The course uses examples in the Lean theorem-proving system. We have designed the course to encourage students to think about mathematics from three perspectives: the formal (logic and natural deduction), the informal (natural-language concepts and proofs), and the semi-formal (exemplified by Lean).

The most recent version of the text can be found here (interactive) or here (pdf), and the development is tracked on GitHub.

In Fall 2016, Jeremy Avigad and I co-taught a sophomore-level course at CMU using these notes.
