Ebook Thomas’ Calculus In Si Units 13th Edition
This text is designed for a three-semester or four-quarter calculus course (math, engineering, and science majors). Thomas’ Calculus, Thirteenth Edition, introduces students to the intrinsic beauty of calculus and the power of its applications. For more than half a century, this text has been revered for its clear and precise explanations, thoughtfully chosen examples, superior figures, and time-tested exercise sets. With this new edition, the exercises were refined, updated, and expanded-always with the goal of developing technical competence while furthering students’ appreciation of the subject. Co-authors Hass and Weir have made it their passion to improve the text in keeping with the shifts in both the preparation and ambitions of today’s students. The text is available with a robust MyMathLab(R) course-an online homework, tutorial, and study solution. In addition to interactive multimedia features like lecture videos and eBook, nearly 9,000 algorithmic exercises are available for students to get the practice they need. Please note that the product you are purchasing does not include access to MyMathLab(R). Students, if MyMathLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. Instructors can contact their 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.

About the Author
Jay Devore earned his undergraduate degree in Engineering Science from the University of California at Berkeley, spent a year at the University of Sheffield in England, and finished his Ph.D. in statistics at Stanford University. He previously taught at the University of Florida and at Oberlin College and has had visiting appointments at Stanford, Harvard, the University of Washington, New York University, and Columbia University. From 1998 to 2006, Jay served as Chair of the Statistics Department at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, which has an international reputation for activities in statistics education. In addition to this book, Jay has written several widely used engineering statistics texts and a book in applied mathematical statistics. He is currently collaborating on a business statistics text, and also serves as an Associate Editor for Reviews for several statistics journals. He is the recipient of a distinguished teaching award from Cal Poly and is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, cooking and eating good food, tennis, and travel to faraway places. He is especially proud of his wife, Carol, a retired elementary school teacher, his daughter Allison, the executive director of a nonprofit organization in New York City, and his daughter Teresa, an ESL teacher in New York City.
Nicholas Farnum received his B.S. and Ph.D. in Mathematics from University of California at Irvine. He is currently a professor in the Information Systems and Decision Sciences Department at California State University, Fullerton. Professor Farnum has published several papers in applied and theoretical statistics and has also written texts in Quality Control and Forecasting. He is a member of the American Statistical Association and the Mathematical Association of America. In his spare time Professor Farnum enjoys cooking, playing music, and traveling.
Jimmy Doi earned his B.A. in Mathematics (minors in Biology, Chemistry, Japanese) from California State University, Northridge. He earned his masters and Ph.D. in Statistics at North Carolina State University. Since receiving his doctorate Professor Doi has been on the faculty in the Statistics Department at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. His research interests include biostatistics and categorical data analysis. He enjoys traveling, kayak fishing, long board surfing, and playing basketball with his current and former students. But his favorite moments are when he spends time with his wife Midori and daughter Alicia.
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.
Instructors love Numerical Methods for Engineers because it makes teaching easy! Students love it because it is written for them–with clear explanations and examples throughout. The text features a broad array of applications that span all engineering disciplines. The sixth edition retains the successful instructional techniques of earlier editions. Chapra and Canale’s unique approach opens each part of the text with sections called Motivation, Mathematical Background, and Orientation. This prepares the student for upcoming problems in a motivating and engaging manner. Each part closes with an Epilogue containing Trade-Offs, Important Relationships and Formulas, and Advanced Methods and Additional References. Much more than a summary, the Epilogue deepens understanding of what has been learned and provides a peek into more advanced methods. Helpful separate Appendices. “Getting Started with MATLAB” abd “Getting Started with Mathcad” which make excellent references. Numerous new or revised problems drawn from actual engineering practice, many of which are based on exciting new areas such as bioengineering. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in the problems, which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Excellent new examples and case studies span asll areas of engineering disciplines; the students using this text will be able to apply their new skills to their chosen field. Users will find use of software packages, specifically MATLAB(R), Excel(R) with VBA and Mathcad(R). This includes material on developing MATLAB(R) m-files and VBA macros.
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.
