This excellent undergraduate calculus text offers students an unusual perspective on concepts of integration in Euclidean spaces and their relationship to other mathematical areas. Subjects include sets and structures, limit and continuity in En, measure and integration, differentiable mappings, sequences and series, applications of improper integrals, and more. Preface. Problems. Problems with tips and solutions for some.
Provides a world view of mathematics, balancing ancient, early modern and modern history. Problems are taken from their original sources, enabling students to understand how mathematicians in various times and places solved mathematical problems. In this new edition a more global perspective is taken, integrating more non-Western coverage including contributions from Chinese/Indian, and Islamic mathematics and mathematicians. An additional chapter covers mathematical techniques from other cultures. *Up to date, uses the results of very recent scholarship in the history of mathematics. *Provides summaries of the arguments of all important ideas in the field.
The third edition of Cynthia Young’s Algebra & Trigonometry brings together all the elements that have allowed instructors and learners to successfully “bridge the gap” between classroom instruction and independent homework by overcoming common learning barriers and building confidence in students’ ability to do mathematics. Written in a clear, single voice that speaks to students and mirrors how instructors communicate in lecture, Young’s hallmark pedagogy enables students to become independent, successful learners. Varied exercise types and modeling projects keep the learning fresh and motivating.
After having written five developmental algebra textbooks, I decided to team up with Larry Perez from Saddleback College in California to write a paperback series beginning with Basic College Math or arithmetic. We know, first-hand, that teaching developmental mathematics is about so much more than the math. Today, many of our students are also in developmental reading and/or writing courses, so they don't read well. Many students are poor note-takers, do not know how to read/use a textbook, have poor study skills, and have never learned time-management skills.
Barron's SAT Subject Test Math Level 2, 10th Edition
The newly updated tenth edition of Barron's SAT Subject Test Math 2 offers students all the test preparation they'll need with: A diagnostic test with explained answers to help students identify their strengths and weaknesses Advice on using a graphing calculator A detailed review of all test topics, including polynomial, trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic, and rational functions; coordinate and three-dimensional geometry; numbers and operations; and much more
Banach algebras are Banach spaces equipped with a continuous multipli- tion. In roughterms,there arethree types ofthem:algebrasofboundedlinear operators on Banach spaces with composition and the operator norm, al- bras consisting of bounded continuous functions on topological spaces with pointwise product and the uniform norm, and algebrasof integrable functions on locally compact groups with convolution as multiplication. These all play a key role in modern analysis.
Don't let your fear of math hold you back from a rewarding career in nursing or allied health! Basic Math for Nursing and Allied Health uses an easy-to-understand building-block approach designed to teach you how to correlate basic math concepts with everyday activities and eventually master the more complex calculations and formulas used by nursing and allied health professionals. This unique text walks you through essential math topics from Arabic and Roman numerals, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, percentage, ratios and proportions, to conversion factors between household and metric measurements.
