What does 'intuitive' and 'rigorous' mean and their differences?

Without such care, it is difficult to avoid mistakes. However, it is not clear how we could make a completely rigorous presentation both reasonably short and intuitively understandable. In this book, we compromise and use a mixture of intuitive and rigorous reasoning.

Intuitive - logical, it makes sense
If you heat a substance up, it expands. Like a metal bar. I don't have to go into detail about molecules vibrating for you to understand that if I heat something up it expands. That is common sense.

Rigorous reasoning - Step-by-step proof to reach understanding.
If you heat ice, it gets smaller in volume as it becomes water. That doesn't seem logical, but it's true. If I take you through the process to show you scientifically how the molecules of ice react as I heat it, I can show you why this is true, so you can understand.
