Textbooks

Introduction to Mathematical Analysis I  second editionThis item contains topics of real analysis usually covered in a 10week course: the completeness axiom, sequences and convergence, continuity, and differentiation. It also contain many wellselected exercises of various levels.

College AlgebraCollege Algebra provides a comprehensive exploration of algebraic principles and meets scope and sequence requirements for a typical introductory algebra course. The modular approach and richness of content ensure that the book meets the needs of a variety of courses. College Algebra offers a wealth of examples with detailed, conceptual explanations, building a strong foundation in the material before asking students to apply what they’ve learned.

Linear AlgebraThis text covers the standard material for a US undergraduate first course. It has extensive exercise sets with worked answers to all exercises, including proofs, beamer slides for classroom use, and a lab manual for computer work. The approach is developmental. Although everything is proved, it introduces the material with a great deal of motivation, many computational examples, and exercises that range from routine verifications to a few challenges.

PrecalculusPrecalculus is intended for collegelevel precalculus students. Since precalculus courses vary from one institution to the next, the authors have attempted to meet the needs of as broad an audience as possible, including all of the content that might be covered in any particular course. The result is a comprehensive book that covers more ground than an instructor could likely cover in a typical one or twosemester course; but instructors should find, almost without fail, that the topics they wish to include in their syllabus are covered in the text.

Calculus Volumes 13Calculus is designed for the typical two or threesemester general calculus course, incorporating innovative features to enhance student learning. The book guides students through the core concepts of calculus and helps them understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them. Due to the comprehensive nature of the material, we are offering the book in three volumes for flexibility and efficiency. Volume 1 covers functions, limits, derivatives, and integration. Calculus Volume 2 covers integration, differential equations, sequences and series, and parametric equations and polar coordinates. Calculus Volume 3 covers parametric equations and polar coordinates, vectors, functions of several variables, multiple integration, and secondorder differential equations.
