Algebra is an elementary algebra text from one of the leading mathematicians of the world — a major contribution to the teaching of the very first high school level course in a centuries old topic — refreshed by the author’s inimitable pedagogical style and deep understanding of mathematics and how it is taught and learned. This book is about algebra. The main part of the book is made up of problems. The best way to deal with them is: Solve the problem by yourself, compare your solution with the solution in the book (if it exists), and then go to the next problem.
This easy-to-understand reference explains algebra in terms you can understand. It also gives you the necessary tools to solve complex problems.
In this classic math text, Martin Gardner has rendered calculus comprehensible to readers of all levels. With a new introduction, three new chapters, modernized language and methods throughout, and an appendix of challenging and enjoyable practice problems, Calculus Made Easy has been thoroughly updated for the modern reader.
Each chapter opens with a motivating application that previews the mathematical concepts to be explored. Over 1,000 examples are provided; each is titled for easy reference and most include step-by-step solutions. Essay questions are also provided. Calculus Learning Tools CD-ROM comes free with each copy of the text purchased. Its variety of explorations, labs, 3-D rotatable graphs, and other tools bring calculus concepts to life.
