Summary
The third edition of College Mathematics will cover fundamentals in typical college math courses in algebra, trigonometry, precalculus, finite mathematics, and Calculus I. This revision of the highly successful outline (348,000 copies sold over two editions) is directed to students taking the required mathematics courses in the first year of university study. More than ever, entering college students are underprepared, and the mathematics curriculum in the survey-level course has changed over the last decade to accommodate their needs. This new version will be structured to conform to all these curriculum changes, besides supplying a substantial number of fully solved problems for practice and comprehension. The book will cover the course topics most commonly taken to fulfill the basic math requirement: a review of Elementary Algebra, College Algebra, Trigonometry, Discrete Mathematics, and Introduction to Calculus.
