A BETTER WAY TO COLLEGE ALGEBRA X-PERTISE One of the most valuable tools acquired in a university education, college algebra is essential for courses from the sciences to computing, engineering to mathematics. It can help you do better on placement exams, even before college, and it's useful in solving the computations of daily life. Now anyone with an interest in college algebra can master it. In College Algebra Demystified, entertaining author and experienced teacher Rhonda Huettenmueller breaks college algebra down into manageable bites with practical examples, real data, and a new approach that banishes algebra's mystery. With College Algebra Demystified, you master the subject one simple step at a time—at your own speed. Unlike most books on college algebra, general concepts are presented first—and the details follow. In order to make the process as clear and simple as possible, long computations are presented in a logical, layered progression with just one execution per step. This fast and easy self-teaching course will help you: Perform better on placement exams Avoid confusion with detailed examples and solutions that help you every step of the way Conquer the coordinate plane, lines and intercepts, parabolas, and nonlinear equations Get comfortable with functions, graphs of functions, logarithms, exponents, and more Master aspects of algebra that will help you with calculus, geometry, trigonometry, physics, chemistry, computing, and engineering Reinforce learning and pinpoint weaknesses with questions at the end of every chapter, and a final at the end of the book

From the author of The Pleasures of Counting and Naïve Decision Making comes a calculus book perfect for self-study. It will open up the ideas of the calculus for any 16- to 18-year-old, about to begin studies in mathematics, and will be useful for anyone who would like to see a different account of the calculus from that given in the standard texts. In a lively and easy-to-read style, Professor Körner uses approximation and estimates in a way that will easily merge into the standard development of analysis. By using Taylor's theorem with error bounds he is able to discuss topics that are rarely covered at this introductory level. This book describes important and interesting ideas in a way that will enthuse a new generation of mathematicians.

This first introductory book designed to train novice programmers is based on a student course taught by the author, and has been optimized for biology students without previous experience in programming. By interspersing theory chapters with numerous small and large programming exercises, the author quickly shows readers how to do their own programming, and throughout uses anecdotes and real-life examples from the biosciences to 'spice up' the text. This practical book thus teaches essential programming skills for life scientists who want -- or need -- to write their own bioinformatics software tools.
