Mathematical Ideas

    Mathematical Ideas

    By: Miller, Heeren, Hornsby

    Price: new $102.00 (Expanded 9th edition)

    The Expanded 9th Edition contains:

    Problem Solving
    Set Theory
    Logic
    Numeration and Mathematical Systems
    Number Theory
    Real Numbers
    Algebra
    Graphs and Functions
    Systems of Equations and Inequalities
    Geometry
    Counting Methods
    Probability
    Statistics
    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.
