PNIE Linear Algebra 4th Edition
For courses in Advanced Linear Algebra. This top-selling, theorem-proof text presents a careful treatment of the principle topics of linear algebra, and illustrates the power of the subject through a variety of applications. It emphasizes the symbiotic relationship between linear transformations and matrices, but states theorems in the more general infinite-dimensional case where appropriate.
This text is a study of limits and continuity, and is designed to supplement standard calculus texts. It discusses limits and continuity in several different ways, since students gain understanding through comparison.
Continuity of a function and limit of a sequence are introduced before limit of a function. It is hoped that the student will gain momentum while studying these easier concepts so that when he reaches the difficult concepts of deleted neighborhood, limit point, and limit of a function, he will not lose sight of the simple pattern underlying the limit.
This write-in workbook is an invaluable resource to help students’ improve their Maths and English skills and help prepare for Level 1 and Level 2 Functional Skills exams. The real-life questions are all written with a Construction Multi-Skills context to help students find essential Maths and English theory understandable, engaging and achievable. Written by Gary Taylor, lecturer with a wealth of experience in the Construction Multi-Skills and Plumbing industries, this workbook is an effective resource to support Maths and English learning in the classroom, at work and for personal study at home.
This bestseller will help you learn regression-analysis methods that you can apply to real-life problems. It highlights the role of the computer in contemporary statistics with numerous printouts and exercises that you can solve using the computer. The authors continue to emphasize model development, the intuitive logic and assumptions that underlie the techniques covered, the purposes, advantages, and disadvantages of the techniques, and valid interpretations of those techniques.

Offering a solid introduction to the entire modeling process, A FIRST COURSE IN MATHEMATICAL MODELING, 5th Edition delivers an excellent balance of theory and practice, giving students hands-on experience developing and sharpening their skills in the modeling process. Throughout the book, students practice key facets of modeling, including creative and empirical model construction, model analysis, and model research. The authors apply a proven six-step problem-solving process to enhance students’ problem-solving capabilities — whatever their level. Rather than simply emphasizing the calculation step, the authors first ensure that students learn how to identify problems, construct or select models, and figure out what data needs to be collected. By involving students in the mathematical process as early as possible — beginning with short projects — the book facilitates their progressive development and confidence in mathematics and modeling.
