Math Dictionary With Solutions
A Math Review


April 1999 | 576 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

"I have never seen anything even close to this level of breadth. It's a very thorough and comprehensive source book for mathematical ideas, terminology, definitions, and examples. Math Dictionary with Solutions, 2nd would be an excellent reference book for instructors of basic mathematics and statistics courses as well as for non-math majors taking required math and statistics courses."

--Paul R. Swank, University of Houston

"In addition to providing definitions as every dictionary must, it also provides clear and easy-to-follow examples that show how to carry out the most important mathematical operations to be used across these levels. This book is also a valuable resource for graduate students and academicians in the social sciences who are coping with the rapidly increasing emphasis on quantitative methods that, to be understood, require more familiarity with mathematical underpinnings than are typically a part of the academic background of many individuals in these fields."

--Dennis W. Roncek, University of Nebraska, Omaha

"This is a highly readable, accessible, reference source, the product of a huge amount of labor, obviously."

--Hoben Thomas, The Pennsylvania State University

Have you ever suddenly become stuck and not remembered how to divide a fraction or turn a fraction into a percentage? Or, have you taken a graduate statistics course and discovered that you can't remember any of the terminology or techniques from a calculus course you took years ago? If either of these scenarios sounds familiar, then this book will provide you with the quick and easy review that you need. This reference book has math topics ranging from arithmetic through calculus arranged alphabetically by topic. Each topic is provided with a definition, explanation, and an example or two of how to solve a particular problem using the topic's technique. Depending on the degree of difficulty of the topic, this material is covered in one or two paragraphs to several pages. To further facilitate learning, the topics are cross-referenced so that the reader can backtrack to easier topics if the current one is too difficult. This book is a "mathematics tutor-in-a-book" and provides a reliable reference for any researcher or manager who works with numbers or needs a review of mathematical concepts.
