Years of high school education convinced me that math was nothing more than a rote excersize in symbol memorization and manipulation, but taking that class completely changed my perspective. It covers the logic used by mathematicians in explicit detail and builds mathematical intuition that helps students see how equations, theorems, etc... are created from the mathematician's perspective.
