This lesson is wonderful for anyone who is just being introduced to the art of proofs. Induction is a great starter proof that helps a student who is new to proofs wrap his or her head around the idea. Not only is the basic structure of a proof by induction explained, several examples are included for additional practice and understanding. A really great crash course in Induction, but containing no additional resources.
