I am a math and statistics 1st year student.
Calculus, linear algebra, etc I am very good at and do well. This semester I have a mathematical reasoning proof class which I am really struggling with. It is a completely different way of thinking in my opinion and I enjoy it, but struggle.
It has only been 2 weeks since I started this class, but even with some of the basics of Euclud's infinitely many number of primes proof and some absolute value proofs I am spending hours to fully understand.
Anyway, my question is does it get easier and should I be putting this much time into understand basic proofs when in a couple of weeks they will probably be very easy to understand as the progression of any type of learning usually ends up this way.
