This elementary presentation exposes readers to both the process of rigor and the rewards inherent in taking an axiomatic approach to the study of functions of a real variable.

Each chapter begins with the discussion of some motivating examples and concludes with a series of questions.The aim is to challenge and improve mathematical intuition rather than to verify it.
