I'm self-studying A-Level maths and getting on well with most of the spec, but I'm struggling with Proof. Finding it really difficult to understand how to infer what's required from questions and I don't really understand what's going on in the worked examples I've found online or answers to questions.

I've spent the day working through practice questions and reading up on it / watching Youtube videos but still feel pretty lost.

Does anyone have any links to resources or questions on this topic? Or any tips on how to improve? Thanks!

There’s usually a certain number of different proofs that they can ask at a level. So even if you don’t understand it conceptually, just doing a bunch of questions will get you accustomed to the types of proofs.

I personally couldn’t wrap my head around some proofs (just didn’t get them) so I just did all the questions related to that type of proof until I got the method of how to do it

Took your advice and already feeling way more chill about it - thanks!

You only really need to know and work on proof by contradiction tbh. Thats the big one. The rest are pretty self explanatory and very intuitive.
