good concept but book falls short You will probably have plenty of problems at your disposal in a calc class, so ones from Schaums don't necessarily correlate to what the professor is teaching. Furthermore there are many steps, but not always enough, and no explanations. I think it would be better to have 1000 problems with discussion rather then 3000 crammed in tiny print with bad formatting. That's the final qualm with this book, it is printed on poor quality paper and the ink is thick and the print is small and really crammed in there. Not what you need when there are so many sub and super scripts.
Recommend for Students Needing Help  No Brainer Do these problems to improve your scores on tests or just to pass if you are having a problem. To succeed in calculus do problems, problems, and more problems. Here is a book with 3000 problems. That will keep the student busy. Recommend buy. It is cheap and effective. Jack in Toronto

Very helpful
study for placement tests with this book it even has a few pages on circles, and triangles!
Still do not have a clue!
Very Helpful But, Slightly Confusing This book helped me pass a college math test which allowed me to be placed in a higher level math course. A few comments for the next printing. Slightly better explanations could be given on more difficult and confusing problems. More attention should be given to editing and proofing. I came across a couple of problems and, the answer given was either incorrect or the procedure given was incorrect. After following the procedure for solving the problem contiuosly provided the wrong answer by the book. Also, I cam across a discrepancy involving "orders of operation". Once again, following the instructions given, I produced the wrong answer until I tried my own method. Finally, answers to examples and practice problems are too close to the question so the answers are immediately visible, thus, encouraging peeking at the answers. Otherwise, this book is GREAT!!!!
So Far so good. The only complaint I have is that there should be more examples. ... Read more

Teachers ¿ recommend this book for your parents ! That would surely be a "hard" class, with lots of dropouts. But even with its rigor, I nevertheless, still wouldn't expect it to produce a Shaq or an Iverson. For that matter I'm not sure it would actually produce basketball players at all. Neither does Marilyn Burns, in this wonderful book, as she cites this example of a "ridiculous" way to learn basketball and matches it to the way that so many of us were taught mathematics. We can chuckle at the example  but for many it is a nervous chuckle, indeed. Most of us grew up to be neither basketball stars nor mathematicians  nor even adequate users of mathematics in our lives  and to be desperately resistant to revisiting any part of our mathematical upbringing.. As a 6th grade math teacher, I know this too well. At a party I can find as little company as the proctologists once conversation has turned to professions. On "Parents' Night" the easiest way to clear the room is to hint that we might all "try some examples" of what the students will be doing in the year. This "phobia" seems also to be the basis for the immense friction that efforts to reform mathematics have faced in the past decade. Approaches that favor students actively engaging in math, talking to each other, (talking to parents!), responding to openended problems and creating algorithms are just so alien that they have faced fierce resistance. Many Americans are as eager to "just get through" their children's school mathematics experience as they were to survive their own. Any attempt to elaborate or reposition the subject (especially to engage them in new approaches) is, for them, just delaying early parole from their child's sentence to "serve" 812 years. Like any neurosis, this phobia has enervated some and produced mathematical cripples; but it has also energized others whose sense of overcoming math as an obstacle informs their own sense of the nature of "success." Burns knows this from more than a decade of working, through her "Math Solutions" project, training tensofthousands of preservice and active teachers in new approaches to their classrooms. She is well known in math education circles for her "Math By All Means" series: which included books with refreshingly new models for teaching 'core' topics such as division in grades 3 and 4 as well as unheard of topics such as probability in elementary classrooms. She has since branched into a growing collection of books aimed to directly engage and intrigue kids, as well as more books aimed at bolstering the uncertainty of many teachers who face new challenges but sense the roots of the math phobia in their own lives. I believe this book is her book for parents. Burns commences with a warm chapter discussing the central national mathematics ritual of the year  the production of the perfect Thanksgiving Turkey. Who knew it to include so much math? Or, as Burns dryly wonders, to have driven the market to produce the "popup" turkey to let the math phobics off the hook! From there she moves to discuss everything from the role of calculators and testing to specific 'topics' (teaching fractions and percents), to a general retrospective on "Math then and now" and a prospective look at solving the phobia problem. Burns seems well aware of the difficult fact that the math phobia will, itself, deter many adults from even a glance at this book. It is surely by design that it is a slender and unintimidating volume, sprinkled with clear illustrations and quite a few examples of student's work. Along the way, it scatters seven lessthantraditional math problems through the chapters and ends with a chapter entitled "Not your everyday answer key." Its odd that in a culture swamped with selfhelp books, where folks will line up, unflinchingly, to purchase books about surviving depression or abusive relationships. I find it hard to imagine many math "phobics" marching to the cash register with this book in hand (perhaps, thus, more saleable through an online venue). Burns is not one to proffer deep analysis for such troubled folks. Instead she offers a chuckle and a hand for a short walk through a place where math is engaging enough to almost be... fun; a place where our children are exploring every day; a place where the challenges of the 21st century won't be faced with the intellectual tools of the 19th. Buy this book for yourself. Buy a passaround copy for friends who can't seem to get past grousing about the "new, new" math. Buy one for the members of your school board and the principal in your child's elementary school. Buy a sympathy copy to anyone you see worrying the pages of one of E.D. Hirsch's "What your nth=Grader Needs to Know" tomes. What they, and we, really need to know is how to think. This book is a good starting point.
A must for parents or teachers of K8 grade children. This is an easy reading book that should help parents understand the trends in mathematics education and give ideas how to help their children to enjoy mathematics rather than the situation where children hate mathematics.
Funny and insightful. Reminds me of my own math experience..

A fascinating introduction to coordinate geometry. The authors begin with the coordinate geometry of the real line. They discuss absolute value and define what distance means. Next the authors examine the coordinate geometry of the plane. They define distance in the plane, show how relations among the coordinates define geometric figures, and discuss different coordinate systems that can be used in the plane. Their examples illustrate how algebraic methods developed by Rene Descartes make it possible to solve geometric problems efficiently that would be quite difficult to solve using synthetic geometry. The authors then treat the coordinate geometry of threedimensional space in a similar manner. The second part of the book begins with a problem concerning lattice points in the plane. The authors use this example and its generalizations to justify exploring the coordinate geometry of fourdimensional space. They carefully treat the example of a fourdimensional unit hypercube, examining its properties by considering its analogues in lower dimensions: the segment [0, 1] of the real number line, the unit square in the coordinate plane, and the unit cube in space. Since the book was initially written for a correspondence course for high school students in the Soviet Union, it is designed for selfstudy and accessible to students who have had high school courses in algebra and geometry. Since students in the Soviet Union were able to mail their solutions to the exercises to the authors when the authors were professors at the University of Moscow, answers to most of the exercises are not provided. The exercises are thoughtprovoking and some are quite challenging. I also highly recommend that you explore the other volumes in the Gelfand School Outreach Program. They include Algebra, Functions and Graphs, and Trigonometry. ... Read more
