Great reference... a Must Have,
By A Customer
This review is from: Mathematics: From the Birth of Numbers (Paperback)
As an aspiring mathematician, I use a great deal of math from simple algebra through calculus and beyond. This book looked so great, it's all I asked for for Christmas. I was not disappointed. It is a comprehensive book covering many essential math concepts; algebraic techniques, graphing, trig, calculus, linear algebra, probability and much, much more.
The author has found a cohesive way to bring all these different, but interrelated subdisciplines of math together for a fantastic, easy to use math companion.
Great gift idea (once you've picked up a copy for yourself)! Useful to high school students. I wish this had been on my bookshelf when I was in high school. A must have! Thank you, Jan Gullberg!
