Operations Research provides a broad focus on algorithmic and practical implementation of Operations Research (OR) techniques, using theory, applications, and computations to teach students OR basics. The book can be used conveniently in a survey course that encompasses all the major tools of operations research, or in two separate courses on deterministic and probabilistic decision-making.

With the Tenth Edition, the author preserves classical algorithms by providing essential hand computational algorithms as an important part of OR history. Based on input and submissions from OR students, professors, and practitioners, the author also includes scenarios that show how classical algorithms can be beneficial in practice. These entries are included as Aha! Moments with each dealing with stories, anecdotes, and issues in OR theory, applications, computations, and teaching methodology that can advance the understanding of fundamental OR concepts.

Soo Tan’s APPLIED CALCULUS FOR THE MANAGERIAL, LIFE, AND SOCIAL SCIENCES, Ninth Edition balances applications, pedagogy, and technology to provide readers with the context they need to stay motivated and interested in the material. Accessible for majors and non-majors alike, the book uses an intuitive approach that introduces abstract concepts through examples drawn from common, real-life experiences and numerous fields of interest to which readers can relate. Insightful Portfolios highlight the careers of real people and discuss how they incorporate math into their daily professional activities. Numerous exercises ensure that readers have a solid understanding of concepts before advancing to the next topic. Algebra review notes, keyed to the review chapter Preliminaries, appear where and when readers need them. Available with InfoTrac Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.
About the Author
Soo T. Tan has published numerous papers in Optimal Control Theory and Numerical Analysis. He received his S.B. degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his M.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and his Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles. “One of the most important lessons I learned from my early experience teaching these courses is that many of the students come into these courses with some degree of apprehension. This awareness led to the intuitive approach I have adopted in all of my texts.”
Full of relevant, diverse, and current real-world applications, Stefan Waner and Steven Costenoble’s FINITE MATHEMATICS, 6E, International Edition helps you relate to mathematics. A large number of the applications are based on real, referenced data from business, economics, the life sciences, and the social sciences. Thorough, clearly delineated spreadsheet and TI Graphing Calculator instruction appears throughout the book. Acclaimed for its readability and supported by the authors’ popular website, this book will help you grasp and understand finite mathematics-whatever your learning style may be.
The interest earned on a bank account, the arrangement of seeds in a sunflower, and the shape of the Gateway Arch in St. Louis are all intimately connected with the mysterious number e. In this informal and engaging history, Eli Maor portrays the curious characters and the elegant mathematics that lie behind the number. Designed for a reader with only a modest background in mathematics, this biography of e brings out that number’s central importance in mathematics and illuminates a golden era in the age of science.
The new Mathematics General syllabus describes two pathways that start in Year 11. Even though both pathways share a common Preliminary course, students taking each pathway have specific learning needs, so we have published two levels of text for both Years 11 and 12. New Century Maths 11 (Pathway 1) has been written for the new Mathematics General course commencing in 2013. This book caters for students who have completed Stage 5.1 by the end of Year 10 and are headed towards the workforce or further training after school. The book encourages the development of practical mathematical skills for life. It supports a vocational pathway that is content-endorsed but not HSC-examinable. This book includes access to the NelsonNet password-protected website which contains student and teacher resources for schools that use New Century Maths 11 as a core resource. To download a sample chapter, Earning money, click the Download Sample Material button. The corresponding Year 12 text, New Century Maths 12 General Mathematics 1 HSC Course, will be available in mid 2013.
