Ebook Linear Algebra And Its Applications 5th Global Edition
For courses in linear algebra. With traditional linear algebra texts, the course is relatively easy for students during the early stages as material is presented in a familiar, concrete setting. However, when abstract concepts are introduced, students often hit a wall. Instructors seem to agree that certain concepts (such as linear independence, spanning, subspace, vector space, and linear transformations) are not easily understood and require time to assimilate. These concepts are fundamental to the study of linear algebra, so students’ understanding of them is vital to mastering the subject. This text makes these concepts more accessible by introducing them early in a familiar, concrete Rn setting, developing them gradually, and returning to them throughout the text so that when they are discussed in the abstract, students are readily able to understand. MyMathLab not included. Students, if MyMathLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyMathLab should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. MyMathLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.

The author team of Dave Sobecki and Allan Bluman created an engaging text and digital program aimed at meeting the needs of today’s liberal arts math students, resulting in the third edition of Math in Our World. This revision focused on further development of critical thinking skills through several hundred revised exercises and examples, still presented within the hallmark style of the Math in Our World program. Carefully chosen questions help students to form a connection between relevant examples and the mathematical concepts of the chapter. Using the engaging writing style characteristic of the text, the authors support concepts through abundant examples, helpful practice problems, and rich exercise sets. The author team was also deeply engaged in the development of the Connect and LearnSmart online content to help ensure a consistent experience for students regardless of medium. The result is an exceptionally engaging program that is able to both effectively and creatively convey the fundamental concepts of a liberal arts math curriculum to even the most hesitant student.
About the Author
Dave Sobecki was born and raised in Cleveland, and started college at Bowling Green State University in 1984 majoring in creative writing. Eleven years later, he walked across the graduation stage to receive a PhD in math, a strange journey indeed. After two years at Franklin and Marshall College in Pennsylvania, he came home to Ohio, accepting a tenure-track job at the Hamilton campus of Miami University. Dave has won a number of teaching awards in his career, and more recently has turned his attention to writing textbooks. Dave is in a happy place where his love of teaching meshes perfectly with his childhood dream of writing. He lives in Fairfield, Ohio with his lovely wife Cat, and fuzzy dogs Macleod and Tessa. When not teaching or writing, Dave’s passions include Ohio State football, Cleveland Indians baseball, heavy metal music, travel, golf, and home improvement.

This Very Short Introduction explores the rich historical and cultural diversity of mathematical practice, ranging from the distant past to the present. Historian Jacqueline Stedall shows that mathematical ideas are far from being fixed, but are adapted and changed by their passage across periods and cultures. The book illuminates some of the varied contexts in which people have learned, used, and handed on mathematics, drawing on fascinating case studies from a range of times and places, including early imperial China, the medieval Islamic world, and nineteenth-century Britain. By drawing out some common threads, Stedall provides an introduction not only to the mathematics of the past but to the history of mathematics as a modern academic discipline.
Steven Chapra’s Applied Numerical Methods with MATLAB, third edition, is written for engineering and science students who need to learn numerical problem solving. Theory is introduced to inform key concepts which are framed in applications and demonstrated using MATLAB. The book is designed for a one-semester or one-quarter course in numerical methods typically taken by undergraduates.
The third edition features new chapters on Eigenvalues and Fourier Analysis and is accompanied by an extensive set of m-files and instructor materials.
