Chapters describe proof and abstract mathematics, including induction, basic logic, elementary set theory, functions and relations, and basic number theory and combinatorics, then the basic concepts of analysis, including limits of sequences of real numbers and functions, infinite series, the structure of the real line, and continuous functions.
This organization teaching content changed the traditional teaching materials due to the expression of concise and profound theoretical understanding of the reading and understanding of the difficulties greatly enhance the readability of the content of abstract mathematics and students' acceptability.
The study of such questions goes back to classical issues in topology, analysis and related fields of mathematics, raised by the great pioneers of abstract mathematics of the late 19th and early 20th century, such as Georg Cantor, Emile Borel, Henri Lebesgue and others.
In addition, using visual representations could support learners to process and transform abstract mathematics concepts into concrete representations, and forming such concrete mental images (Sierpinska, 2004).
In particular, it promotes the use of concrete, pictorial, and abstract modes of representation of a mathematics concept, such as place values or fractions, and the need for the learners to observe the equivalence of these representations to achieve sound conceptualisation of the abstract mathematics ([5], p.

Researchers at Ohio State University question the importance of using real-life examples to teach abstract mathematics concepts, based on the results of a randomized trial, controlled experiment in which college students were tested using both concrete and abstract approaches to learning an unfamiliar mathematical system.
The package is designed to combine data and graphics "in a progressive structure to make discoveries" and to put statistical research capabilities within reach of users who lack experience interpreting and reporting statistical data, or have no background in abstract mathematics.
