Advice on (re?)learning math for proofs.

Hello, I'd like some advice for learning math proofs of all types. Currently I know math up to calc 2 but for some reason I have been able to get this far without really learning a proof and letting it stick. I'd like to know what resources you would all recommend for learning proofs thoroughly. This includes proofs of basic geometry, algebra, and anything lower than calc 2. I don't know whether to just buy books on all these math topics or if there is a way on just learning proofs for these specific topics online.

I'm not a math enthusiast but I believe that not being able to express math terms and not being able to prove math concepts may hurt me later down the road. Personally the main goal though here is for computer science. I think if I able to learn this part of math I'll be able to write more convincing and understandable algorithms.

So what would you all recommend?

Re: Advice on (re?)learning math for proofs.

You may see the book named "The Nuts and Bolts of Proofs" by ANTONELLA CUPILLARI .It's a great book. It tries to build up your ability of proving mathematical propositions from a very basic level.
