Basic College Math: An Applied Approach

0618503056


·
 
Book Description

Basic College Mathematics provides mathematically sound and comprehensive coverage of the topics considered essential in a basic college math course. The Aufmann Interactive Method ensures that students master concepts by actively practicing them as they are introduced. This approach is ideal for traditional and returning students in both classroom and distance-learning environments.

For the Sixth Edition, topics from geometry have been integrated into the text, using verbal explanations. In addition, coverage of simple interest (Chapter 6) has been expanded.The Aufmann Interactive Method helps students learn and understand math concepts by doing the math. Every objective contains one or more sets of matched-pair examples. Students first walk through a worked-out example and then solve a...

Book Description
he subject of integrated navigation systems covered in this book is designed for those directly involved with the design, integration, and test and evaluation of navigation systems. It is assumed that the reader has a background in mathematics, including calculus. Integrated navigation systems is the combination of an onboard navigation solution (position, velocity, and attitude) and independent navigation data (aids to navigation) to update or correct navigation solutions. In this book, this combination is accomplished with Kalman filter algorithms. This presentation is segmented into two parts. In the first part, elements of basic mathematics, kinematics, equations describing navigation systems/sensors and their error models, aids to navigation, and Kalman filtering are developed. Detailed derivations are presented...

Complete How to Figure It

Jan 1999
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
The author of the math classic How To Lie with Statistics (1954) has since focused his publishing career more in the areas of home economics and home improvements. This background has strongly influenced the contents of his present book, which provides eclectic advice on topics ranging from sizing a wood stove to buying meat, from comparing retirement plans to designing a cantilevered deck. Library patrons would be more likely to look for this kind of information in other sources. An odd thing about the presentation is that Huff never uses mathematical symbols and equations. Instead, he writes out the equations. For example, the section on solving a quadratic equation starts out "Multiply four times the first number by the third number..." Also, readers will need to have a scientific calculator handy that can...
