Good read for elementry math

  1. Aug 6, 2013 #1
    There are these three good books for survey of mathematics:
    Elementary Mathematics from an Advanced Standpoint: Geometry (Dover Books on Mathematics)
    https://www.amazon.com/Elementary-M...=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1375808003&sr=1-1
    Elementary Mathematics from an Advanced Standpoint: Arithmetic, Algebra, Analysis (Dover Books on Mathematics)
    https://www.amazon.com/Elementary-M...=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1375808003&sr=1-2
    A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics, Third Edition (Chapman Hall/CRC Mathematics Series)
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Concise-Int...-Edition-Chapman/dp/1439835985/ref=pd_sim_b_5
    How do the three of them combined compare to the book that I have:Mathematics: Its Content, Methods and Meaning,https://www.amazon.com/Mathematics-...-Dover/dp/0486409163/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top ?(the purpose is to learn bits of real math for the first time).
    also for learning the math of physics is this one good https://www.amazon.com/Survey-Appli...&keywords=survey+of+applicable+mathematics?if there's anything similar you can post it.

    The book that you have is really good, if that is what you're worried about.

    I want another to supplement it, which explain simply the math behind physics.

    Is your book too advanced for you and you want a simpler book?
