Goldilocks and the Three Matrices
Paperback: \$13.09
The current published story of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' has been modified several times since the original tale was told in the early 1800's. This paper will modify the story again, but using... More > matrices. All solutions of linear systems have either a common solution, or not. In many courses, no further work is completed if no common solution exists. Based on the solution(s) to a linear system, there are three system models to consider. The 'just-right' one solution, the 'too hot' many solutions, and the 'too cold' optimal solution not likely satisfying any equation. This paper will present the solving of a linear system using the adjoint matrix. If no common solution exists, the corresponding optimal solution will be determined. For a linear system with three or less equations, the solution can certainly be completed using 'pencil-and-paper' methods. For a larger number of equations, software methods will be used.< Less
Success With Trigonometry
Paperback: \$20.85
Students will naturally ask, “When will I use this stuff?” With some mathematical concepts, the answer will be a definite “Never!” However, it is very likely you will... More > require trigonometry in some form. You may only need some of the trigonometry topics, but applications similar to the ones contained in this book will probably be required. One of my students worked with a construction firm. He was required to determine whether or not the dump trucks would be in any danger of hitting the overhead hydro wires, preferably with an accurate solution. This book is designed to teach the skills required to be successful solving problems involving triangles. It is suitable for an independent learner, a student in a class, parent, tutor, or for a teacher.< Less
Paperback: \$62.56
Each student in a first year math course has a unique background and set of skills. The intent of this book is to present the required mathematics, software, and thinking skills that will provide a... More > successful transition from high school math programs to Business, Technology, and Management courses. Selected mathematical models, and practical problems are included.< Less
Proofs
Paperback: \$25.83
There are statements that have not, and perhaps cannot, be proved. Data can be displayed, and patterns can be anticipated, but a proof requires a logical process. Statistics can be used to establish... More > a link between events, but often the reliability factor is established at only 95%. Accounting firms will retest a hypothesis using a larger sample if the initial hypothesis test fails. Even then two types of errors exist for each hypothesis: rejecting it by mistake, and incorrectly accepting it. It is similar to `reasonable doubt', although some will believe the statistical claims (at least until another study is released). Any statement can be proved false by one counter example. A correct example though, only illustrates there may be a possible proof. In this book, you will explore common methods of mathematical proof using various topics. Consider it as a supplement to a text.< Less
Teaching for Thinking Mathematics
Paperback: \$58.22
This book explores and examines mathematics and its role in elementary education. Strategies are given for teaching mathematical principles including problem solving and its integration with other... More > subject areas. Math is not 'just one problem after another', but most questions can be answered using several different methods. Some methods of thinking are more inventive and elegant than others, but all accurate methods will agree on both a reasonable initial estimate and the final answer.< Less
