“An Introduction to Primes & Proof” back online

An Introduction to Primes & Proof” is a ‘mini-book’ intended for readers who like mathematics, but want to learn more about it. In particular, it is for the transition from doing algebra into learning about proofs. As the title suggests, prime numbers are the vehicle for doing this. It introduces proof by contradiction (using Minesweeper) and proves the basic theorems about prime numbers.

Earlier versions carried on a bit, talking about the zeta function. These sections have now been removed in order to make the it easier.
