Mathematical Ideas

    Mathematical Ideas

    By: Miller, Heeren, Hornsby

    Price: new $102.00 (Expanded 9th edition)

    The Expanded 9th Edition contains:

    Problem Solving
    Set Theory
    Numeration and Mathematical Systems
    Number Theory
    Real Numbers
    Graphs and Functions
    Systems of Equations and Inequalities
    Counting Methods
    Consumer Mathematics
    Graph Theory
    Voting and Apportionment

    Pros: This textbook is designed primarily for education majors and so this book is less terse and easily understandable compared to some other general mathematics textbooks. It contains basic information about a variety of mathematical topics, making it ideal for a person who wishes to be well-rounded in general mathematics. Plenty of practice problems provide sufficient exercises for the mathematical mind. Every other page or so, the authors provide a biographical sketch of a famous mathematician or an interesting note about notation or history.

    Cons: Because it is designed primarily for education majors, it lacks the depth that other mathematical textbooks have.

    Overall: I would highly recommend this book for anybody interested in learning the basics of mathematics.
