David Poole's innovative LINEAR ALGEBRA: A MODERN INTRODUCTION, 4e emphasizes a vectors approach and better prepares students to make the transition from computational to theoretical mathematics. Balancing theory and applications, the book is written in a conversational style and combines a traditional presentation with a focus on student-centered learning. Theoretical, computational, and applied topics are presented in a flexible yet integrated way. Stressing geometric understanding before computational techniques, vectors and vector geometry are introduced early to help students visualize concepts and develop mathematical maturity for abstract thinking. Additionally, the book includes ample applications drawn from a variety of disciplines, which reinforce the fact that linear algebra is a valuable tool for modeling real-life problems. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
NOTE: This edition features the same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf version. Books a la Carte also offer a great value-this format costs significantly less than a new textbook.

Pat McKeague’s sixth edition of PREALGEBRA is the traditional text for the modern student. Retaining the clarity and patience in explanation and concept development that has made it the book of choice for so many over the years, this new edition is replete with new examples, applications, and fresh new technology options. Throughout this text, you’ll find hundreds of new and relevant applications, with timely references to topics like gas prices and to companies like Google and Yahoo. Real data is used throughout, and wherever possible, has been updated to reflect recent changes. By showing how mathematics is used every day, the author makes students feel more at ease with the topics at hand. In a course where many students are entering with math anxiety, McKeague almost immediately calms students with chapter and section introductions, provides just in time study tips, and then helps students prepare with Getting Ready for Class boxes found throughout the text. This new edition comes complete with Enhanced WebAssign (EWA), the easy to use homework management system. With EWA, you can assign, collect, grade, and record homework assignments via the web. This complete learning system for students includes text-specific exercises, as well as tutorials, videos, and links to online tutoring, and eBook sections of the text.

Linear algebra is something all mathematics undergraduates and many other students, in subjects ranging from engineering to economics, have to learn. The fifth edition of this hugely successful textbook retains all the qualities of earlier editions while at the same time seeing numerous minor improvements and major additions. The latter include: • A new chapter on singular values and singular vectors, including ways to analyze a matrix of data • A revised chapter on computing in linear algebra, with professional-level algorithms and code that can be downloaded for a variety of languages • A new section on linear algebra and cryptography • A new chapter on linear algebra in probability and statistics. A dedicated and active website also offers solutions to exercises as well as new exercises from many different sources (e.g. practice problems, exams, development of textbook examples), plus codes in MATLAB, Julia, and Python.
