David Poole's innovative book prepares students to make the transition from the computational aspects of the course to the theoretical by emphasizing vectors and geometric intuition from the start. Designed for a one- or two-semester introductory course and written in simple, "mathematical English" the book presents interesting examples before abstraction. This immediately follows up theoretical discussion with further examples and a variety of applications drawn from a number of disciplines, which reinforc


Designed for either a one- or two-semester course, this college-level introductory algebra textbook covers vectors, linear equations, matrices, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, orthogonality, vector spaces, and distance and approximation. Appendices discuss mathematical notation and methods of proof, mathematical induction, complex numbers, polynomials, and technology. Concrete examples are emphasized over abstract principles or theoretical concerns. Poole teaches at Trent University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
