I'm hoping someone can give me some advice on how to read and extrapolate information from Mathematical definitions, theorems, etc.
I understand that I need to read it till I understand what it means and to find examples to fit it. But it's not really doing anything for me. I'm spending more than 30 minutes on each definition/theorem but I don't know what the quickest method is for understanding these things.
here's one theorem that doesn't make sense to me
Theorem 2.4 (Cantor) No interval (a,b) of real numbers can be the range of some sequence
I'm currently reading Elementary Real Analysis and Abstract Algebra books and some of the definitions are pretty gnarly.
