Intermediate Algebra review. Perfect for a slower-paced course or for individual review.
The Eighth Edition of this highly dependable book retains its best features--accuracy, precision, depth, and abundant exercise sets--while substantially updating its content and pedagogy. Striving to teach mathematics as a way of life, Sullivan provides understandable, realistic applications that are consistent with the abilities of most readers. Chapter topics include Graphs; Polynomial and Rational Functions; Conics; Systems of Equations and Inequalities; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Counting and Probability; and more. For individuals with an interest in learning algebra as it applies to their everyday lives.
This comprehensive book on finite mathematics covers wide range of topics like linear equations, linear systems, linear programming,basic mathematics of finance, set theory and basic combinatorics, probability and statistics, etc.
Mike Sullivan's time-tested approach focuses students on the fundamental skills they need for the course: preparing for class, practicing with homework, and reviewing the concepts. In the Ninth Edition, Precalculus has evolved to meet today's course needs, building on these hallmarks by integrating projects and other interactive learning tools for use in the classroom or online.
The goal of this textbook is to develop a high level of mathematical understanding and an appreciation for the way mathematics can describe the world around us.
These authors understand what it takes to be successful in mathematics, the skills that students bring to this course, and the way that technology can be used to enhance learning without sacrificing math skills. As a result, they have created a textbook with an overall learning system involving preparation, practice, and review to help students get the most out of the time they put into studying. In sum, Sullivan and Sullivan's Precalculus:Enhanced with Graphing Utilities gives students a model for success in mathematics.
A printed manual containing full solutions to odd-numbered exercises from College Algebra 8.
This Trigonometry Solutions Manual provides fully worked solutions to odd-numbered exercises.
Trees of San Francisco introduces readers to the rich variety of trees that thrive in San Francisco's unique conditions. San Francisco's cool Mediterranean climate has made it home to interesting and unusual trees from all over the world - trees as colorful and exotic as the city itself.This new guide combines engaging descriptions of sixty-five different trees with color photos that reflect the visual appeal of San Francisco. Each page covers a different tree, with several paragraphs of interesting text accompanied by one or two photos. Each entry for a tree also lists locations where "landmark" specimens of the tree can be found. Interspersed throughout the book are sidebar stories of general interest related to San Francisco's trees. Trees of San Francisco also includes a dozen tree tours that will link landmark trees and local attractions in interesting San Francisco neighborhoods such as the Castro, Pacific Heights and the Mission - walks that will appeal to tourists as well as Bay Area natives.
A proven motivator for readers of diverse mathematical backgrounds, this book explores mathematics within the context of real life using understandable, realistic applications consistent with the abilities of any reader. Graphing techniques are emphasized, including a thorough discussion of polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions and conics. Includes Case Studies; New design that utilizes multiple colors to enhance accessibility; Multiple source applications; Numerous graduated examples and exercises; Discussion, writing, and research problems; Important formulas, theorems, definitions, and objectives; and more. For anyone interested in trigonometry.
