Outline Course of Pure Mathematics presents a unified treatment of the algebra, geometry, and calculus that are considered fundamental for the foundation of undergraduate mathematics. This book discusses several topics, including elementary treatments of the real number system, simple harmonic motion, Hooke's law, parabolic motion under gravity, sequences and series, polynomials, binomial theorem, and theory of probability. Organized into 23 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the fundamental concepts of differential and integral calculus, which are complementary processes for solving problems of the physical world. This text then explains the concept of the inverse of a function that is a natural complement of the function concept and introduces a convenient notation. Other chapters illustrate the concepts of continuity and discontinuity at the origin. This book discusses as well the significance of logarithm and exponential functions in scientific and technological contexts. This book is a valuable resource for undergraduates and advanced secondary school students.

Geometry & Trigonometry for Calculus By Peter H. Selby If you need geometry and trigonometry as a tool for technical work … as a refresher course … or as a prerequisite for calculus, here’s a quick, efficient way for you to learn it! With this book, you can teach yourself the fundamentals of plane geometry, trigonometry, and analytic geometry … and learn how these topics relate to what you already know about algebra and what you’d like to know about calculus. You’ll work your way through geometry, numerical trigonometry, methods of trigonometric analysis, analytics, and limits—all the way up to the "front door" of calculus. Geometry and Trigonometry for Calculus is one of the Wiley Self-Teaching Guides. It’s been tested, rewritten, and retested until we’re sure you can teach yourself the concepts of geometry and trigonometry. And it’s programmed—so you work at your own pace. No prerequisites are needed. Objectives and self-tests tell you how you’re doing and allow you to skip ahead or find extra help if you need it. Frequent reviews and practice exercises reinforce what you learn.

In a refreshingly clear-headed and informed approach to addiction, noted writer and radio host Bill Manville sums up what he's learned in more than forty years of research . . . twenty as a demon-driven drunk and twenty in recovery. From his popular show "Addictions and Answers," broadcast from KVML in Sonora, California, Manville has compiled a list of 88 questions and answers from, as he says, "a ton of plain and fancy drunks and dopers and their friends and families." As well, he offers valuable advice and information from his guests: noted psychiatrists, psychologists, rehab counselors, MDs, academics, and more. Here, in first-person detail, are responses to the issues faced by alcoholics, addicts, and their loved ones, such as: · How to intervene with a substance-abusing friend · How alcoholics can protect themselves from relapses · Evaluating therapies, both individual and group · How alcohol affects sex · Definitions of "social drinker," "heavy drinker," and alcoholic · The many faces of denial · Is alcoholism inherited? · How to choose the right rehab · Is there an addictive personality? · What role does spirituality play in recovery? A brave and transformational look at the treatment of chemical dependency, Cool, Hip, and Sober is a captivating, insightful and essential handbook for overcoming denial and achieving a peaceful, long-term recovery.

'Geometry is often given less time in the teaching timetable than other aspects of mathematics. This book encourages practitioners to think about and raise its profile, indeed achieving what its title suggest' - Primary Practice `This creative, innovative and fascinating book/CD package is one you "MUST BUY". All prospective, new and experienced teachers of mathematics can use it to transform their teaching. All readers can use it to reignite their fascination with mathematics' - Professor Sylvia Johnson, Sheffield Hallam University 'This book exudes activity and interactivity. Moreover, it provides challenge in the context of a significant pedagogy, one that is not just present but actually made explicit. It is undoubtedly a book to learn geometry with, but also one to learn to think more deeply about geometry, about its nature and essence, and also about its teaching and learning' - David Pimm Developing Thinking in Geometry enables teachers and their support staff to experience and teach geometric thinking. As well as discussing key teaching principles, the book and accompanying interactive CD include many activities that encourage readers to extend their own learning, and consequently their teaching practices. The book is constructed around the following key themes: - invariance; - language and points of view; - reasoning using invariance; - visualising and representing. These themes draw on teaching principles developed by the team at the Open University's Centre for Mathematics Education which has a 20-year track record of innovative approaches to teaching and learning geometry. This is a 'must have' text for all primary mathematics specialists, secondary and Further Education mathematics teachers and their support staff. Anyone who wishes to create an understanding and enthusiasm for geometry based upon firm research and effective practice, will enjoy this book.
