Guide to Essential Math, Second Edition: A Review for Physics, Chemistry and Engineering Students
This book reminds students in junior, senior and graduate level courses in physics, chemistry and engineering of the math they may have forgotten (or learned imperfectly), which is needed to succeed in science courses. The focus is on math actually used in physics, chemistry and engineering, and the approach to mathematics begins with 12 examples of increasing complexity, designed to hone the student's ability to think in mathematical terms and to apply quantitative methods to scientific problems. Detailed Illustrations and links to reference material online help further comprehension.
By combining algebraic and graphical approaches with practical business and personal finance applications, South-Western's FINANCIAL ALGEBRA, motivates high school students to explore algebraic thinking patterns and functions in a financial context. FINANCIAL ALGEBRA will help your students achieve success by offering an applications based learning approach incorporating Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry topics.
Suzanne thinks it would be fun if the whole class did a community service project together. This way, they can all share the same satisfied feeling they get from helping others. Mrs. Miyamoto agrees and tells the class that they can start planning the project today!
Toward the end of the afternoon on Tuesday, Mr. Griffin asks the students in his class to think about circles again. That morning they reviewed circumference and diameter of circles. Now Mr. Griffin wants to talk about the ratio pi. ....
