Gustafson and Frisk's books support their strongly held beliefs that mathematicians should maintain high expectations of their students and that every student has the right to every possible opportunity to succeed. Beginning Algebra, Fourth Edition presents a mid-level of mathematical rigor while supporting the student with careful pedagogy. The Fourth Edition effectively prepares students for their next mathematics course, as it presents all the topics associated with a first course in algebra and provides students with the basic skills they'll need in order to succeed in the next course.

For scientists and engineers who have no prior knowledge of computer programming, this work presents the MATLAB computer programming system as a problem solving tool. Readers are invited to experiment for themselves in order to discover how particular constructs work. MATLAB can be used in two distinct modes. It offers immediate execution of statements, or even groups of statements, in the command window. It also offers conventional programming by means of script files. The fundamentals of MATLAB are illustrated throughout with many examples, from a number of different scientific and engineeri...

You know that geometry is a math thing, right? You remember that much from school. You also probably remember that it has something to do with circles, squares, diameters, angles, and all those other terms that floated in (and probably right out of ) your head as you were cramming for all those geometry tests way back when. But your math teacher probably never told you that you'd actually use that stuff in real life - if he had, maybe you would have paid more attention

Well, don't fret. You're in the same boat as almost everyone else. Geometry has about a million (a rough estimate) uses in...

In *How Math Explains the World*, mathematician Stein reveals how seemingly arcane mathematical investigations and discoveries have led to bigger, more world-shaking insights into the nature of our world. In the four main sections of the book, Stein tells the stories of the mathematical thinkers who discerned some of the most fundamental aspects of our universe. From their successes and failures, delusions, and even duels, the trajectories of their innovations--and their impact on society--are traced in this fascinating narrative. Quantum mechanics, space-time, chaos theory and the w...

Why do even well-educated people understand so little about mathematics? And what are the costs of our innumeracy? John Allen Paulos, in his celebrated bestseller first published in 1988, argues that our inability to deal rationally with very large numbers and the probabilities associated with them results in misinformed governmental policies, confused personal decisions, and an increased susceptibility to pseudoscience of all kinds. Innumeracy lets us know what we're missing, and how we can do something about it.

The Nature of Genius

Leonardo da Vinci was one of history's true geniuses, equally brilliant as an artist, scientist, and mathematician. Readers of The Da Vinci Code were given a glimpse of the mysterious connections between math, science, and Leonardo's art. Math and the Mona Lisa picks up where The Da Vinci Code left off, illuminating Leonardo's life and work to uncover connections that, until now, have been known only to scholars.

Following Leonardo's own unique model, Atalay searches for the internal dynamics of art and science, revealing to us the deep unity of the two cultures. He...

As the math education crisis in this country continues to make headlines, research continues to prove that it is in middle school when math scores begin to drop--especially for girls--in large part due to the relentless social conditioning that tells girls they "can't do" math, and that math is "uncool." Young girls today need strong female role models to embrace the idea that it's okay to be smart--in ...

What remains unchanged is the author's politics. She sees "math anxiety" as a political issue. So long as people themselves to be disabled in mathematics and do not rise up and confront the social and pedagogical origins of their disabilities, they will be denied "math mental health." Tobias defines this as "the willingness to learn the math you need when you need it." In an ever more technical society, having that willingness can make the difference between high and low self-esteem, failure and success.

Most math and science study guides are a reflection of the college professors who write them-dry, difficult, and pretentious.

*The Humongous Book of Trigonometry Problems* is the exception. Author Mike Kelley has taken what appears to be a typical trigonometry workbook, chock full of solved problems -- more than 750 -- and made notes in the margins adding missing steps and simplifying concepts and solutions, so what would be baffling to students is made perfectly clear. No longer will befuddled students wonder where a particular answer came from or have to rely on trial and error to s...
