Technical Math For Dummies is your one-stop, hands-on guide to acing the math courses you’ll encounter as you work toward getting your degree, certification, or license in the skilled trades. You’ll get easy-to-follow, plain-English guidance on mathematical formulas and methods that professionals use every day in the automotive, health, construction, licensed trades, maintenance, and other trades. You’ll learn how to apply concepts of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry and their formulas related to occupational areas of study. Plus, you’ll find out how to perform basic arithmetic operations and solve word problems as they’re applied to specific trades.
Calculus for Business Economics & the Social & Life Sciences (10th Edition)
Calculus for Business, Economics, and the Social and Life Sciences introduces calculus in real-world contexts and provides a sound, intuitive understanding of the basic concepts students need as they pursue careers in business, the life sciences, and the social sciences. The new Tenth Edition builds on the straightforward writing style, practical applications from a variety of disciplines, clear step-by-step problem solving techniques, and comprehensive exercise sets that have been hallmarks of Hoffmann/Bradley’s success through the years.
David Poole's innovative Linear Algebra: A Modern Introduction, 4th edition emphasizes a vectors approach and better prepares students to make the transition from computational to theoretical mathematics. Balancing theory and applications, the book is written in a conversational style and combines a traditional presentation with a focus on student-centered learning. Theoretical, computational, and applied topics are presented in a flexible yet integrated way.
This is a new edition of the combined Volumes I and II of the hugely successful Tutorial Chemistry Texts Maths for Chemists.
The new edition will continue to provide an excellent resource for all undergraduate chemistry students particularly focussing on the needs of students who may not have studied mathematics beyond GCSE level or equivalent.
This Third Edition of The History of Mathematics examines the elementary arithmetic, geometry, and algebra of numerous cultures, tracing their usage from Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, India, China, and Japan all the way to Europe during the Medieval and Renaissance periods where calculus was developed.
The book I am so pleased to present represents a true innovation in the field of the mathematical didactics and, specifically, in the field of geometry. Based on the long neglected discoveries made by Grassmann, Hamilton and Clifford in the nineteenth century, it presents the geometry -the elementary geometry of the plane, the space, the spacetime- using the best algebraic tools designed specifically for this task, thus making the subject democratically available outside the narrow circle of individuals with the high visual imagination capabilities and the true mathematical insight which were required in the abandoned classical Euclidean tradition.
Physics is frequently one of the hardest subjects for students to tackle because it is a combination of two of the toughest subjects for most students: Math and Word Problems. If you understand the math but don't do well in word problems then you will have trouble. And if you understand the word problem but have no idea where to begin with the math, again, you will not do well.
