This package includes a three-hole punched, loose-leaf edition of ISBN 9780470917756 and a registration code for the WileyPLUS course associated with the text. Before you purchase, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that your instructor requires WileyPLUS. For customer technical support, please visit http://www.wileyplus.com/support. WileyPLUS registration cards are only included with new products. Used and rental products may not include WileyPLUS registration cards. This text is designed to provide a mathematically rigorous, comprehensive coverage of topics and applications, while still being accessible to students. Calter/Calter focuses on developing students’ critical thinking skills as well as improving their proficiency in a broad range of technical math topics such as algebra, linear equations, functions, and integrals. Using abundant examples and graphics throughout the text, this edition provides several features to help students visualize problems and better understand the concepts. Calter/Calter has been praised for its real-life and engineering-oriented applications. The sixth edition of Technical Mathematics has added back in popular topics including statistics and line graphing in order to provide a comprehensive coverage of topics and applications--everything the technical student may need is included, with the emphasis always on clarity and practical applications.

This textbook has been in constant use since 1980, and this edition represents the first major revision of this text since the second edition. It was time to select, make hard choices of material, polish, refine, and fill in where needed. Much has been rewritten to be even cleaner and clearer, new features have been introduced, and some peripheral topics have been removed. The authors continue to provide real-world, technical applications that promote intuitive reader learning. Numerous fully worked examples and boxed and numbered formulas give students the essential practice they need to learn mathematics. Computer projects are given when appropriate, including BASIC, spreadsheets, computer algebra systems, and computer-assisted drafting. The graphing calculator has been fully integrated and calculator screens are given to introduce computations. Everything the technical student may need is included, with the emphasis always on clarity and practical applications.

(Introductory Algebra and Trignometry with Applications by...)
Introductory Algebra and Trignometry with Applications by Paul Calter and Carol Felsinger Rogers This textbook introduces all the important topics for a student who needs preparatory, review, or remedial work in mathematics. Adapted from Calter's Technical Mathematics, it uses an intuitive approach and gives information in very small-segments. Careful page layout and numerous illustrations make the material easy to follow. Features of Introductory Algebra and Trigonometry with Applications include the following.Graphing Calculator: The graphing calculator has been fully integrated throughout the text, and calculator problems are given in the exercises. The book does not present any particular calculator. Keystrokes are shown in the early chapters, with verbal descriptions given thereafter.Common Error Boxes: Many of the mistakes that students repeatedly make have been identified and are presented in the text as Common Error boxes.Summary of Facts and Formulas: All important formulas are boxed and numbered in the text and are listed in the Summary of Facts and Formulas at the end of the book.Examples: The many fully worked examples are specifically chosen to help the student do the exercises. Exercises: A large number of exercises is given after each section, graded by difficulty and grouped by type.Chapter Review Exercises: Every chapter ends with a set of Chapter Review Exercises. In contrast to the exercises, most are scrambled as to type and difficulty, requiring the student to be able to identify type.Applications: Applications drawn from many fields are included in the examples, the exercises, and the Chapter Review.Writing Questions: The "writing-across-the-curriculum" movement urges writing in every course as an aid to learning. In response, this text provides a writing question at the end of every chapter.Team Projects: As an aid to collaborative learning, a team project is included at the end of most chapters.Thorough Support Material: Among valuable components found at the end of the book are the Summary of Facts and Formulas, Conversion Factors, Answers to Selected Exercises, Index to Applications, Index to Writing Questions, Index to Team Projects, and General Index.For the Instructor: An Instructor's Manual contains worked-out solutions to every even-numbered problem in the text. This most valuable supplement is available to any instructor using the textbook.For more information on this book or any of Prentice Hall's other new technology titles, visit our Web site at http://www prenhall.com

Geometry is a dynamic branch of mathematics that also serves as a creative tool for engineers, artists, and architects. Squaring the Circle: Geometry in Art and Architecture includes all the topics necessary for a solid foundation in geometry and explores the timeless influence of geometry on art and architecture. The text offers wide-ranging exercise sets and related projects that allow students to practice and master the mathematics presented. Each chapter introduces mathematical concepts geometrically and illustrates their nontraditional applications in art and architecture throughout the centuries. Appropriate for both basic mathematics courses and cross-discipline courses in mathematics and art, Squaring the Circle requires no previous mathematics.

This invaluable book is renowned for its fully worked examples and numerous applications. Concepts are presented either graphically, analytically, or numerically (sometimes using more than one approach) depending on which seems the most appropriate to make the material clear and easy to understand. Technology is also fully integrated into problem sets and examples, providing a real-world perspective. And the authors encourage readers to begin the problem solving process by estimating the solution and checking their work by examining their answers for "reasonableness."
