Hey all. I was hoping that Mathwonk might be able to comment on these. I found these SMSG preliminary texts via Google Scholar. There's a link below but if you want to check for yourself, enter "intermediate mathematics frank allen smsg" into Google Scholar. Should come up as the first two or three links. I was just wondering if a Print Centre would be able to print and bind these or does the copyright stamp on the second page/book cover page forbid it? http://eric.ed.gov/ERICWebPortal/se...ERICExtSearch_SearchType_0=no&accno=ED173087" Also, if one of the mentors or senior members could comment on this, how do the Gelfand books compare to SMSG? The reason I ask is that I'm looking for a rigorous textbook series that can either replace, or at the least supplement the James Stewart Precalculus and a couple Hirsch Goodman algebra texts I have. Does anyone know how the University of Chicago School Mathematics Projects compares to Gelfand or SMSG? Is the UCSMP a "new" SMSG? Thanks very much in advance for responses.
