A Mathematical Tour of Functions By Jorge Alberto Calvo
Paperback: $40.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Welcome to our mathematical tour! The theme of this book centers around the concept of function, a mathematical idea that has become increasingly important over the past two centuries. In these... More > pages, you will read about many of the topics commonly covered in courses with impressive-sounding titles like College Algebra, Trigonometry, and Precalculus. It is my hope that after reading this book you will be prepared -- and perhaps even want -- to move on to a course in Calculus. This book was originally written as a blueprint for a university-level course satisfying the core curriculum and emphasizing the liberal arts identity at Ave Maria University.< Less
Scientific Programming By Jorge Alberto Calvo
Paperback: $40.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book presents an undergraduate course in scientific programming designed for students who have finished their calculus sequence but have not yet taken a mathematical proofs course. The guiding... More > principle is the belief that writing programs is a useful exercise in developing the intuition for abstract concepts necessary for writing proofs. In particular, writing an incorrect program gives you immediate feedback that something went wrong in a way that writing an incorrect proof does not. This book covers the general building blocks of programming languages and a description of how these concepts are put together to allow computers to produce the results they do. Careful attention is given to binary arithmetic, the IEEE floating-point number standard, and graphic rendering algorithms. It also extends the topics studied in a Calculus course, including the numerical solution of differential equations, smooth interpolation of discrete data, and numerical approximation of non-elementary integrals.< Less
