## Schaum's outline of theory and problems of college mathematics: algebra, discrete mathematics, trigonometry, geometry, introduction to caculusAlgebra, plane trigonometry and plane analytic geometry--also aspects of solid analytic geometry--get full coverage in this book and lead to an introduction to calculus. The many hundreds of problems with step-by-step solutions and supplementary ones with answers illustrate and amplify the theory and repeat basic principles, permitting the kind of active learning that lets students understand and remember important points. |
