Review of Algebra and Triginometry
Editorial review
Real Analysis and Foundations is an advanced undergraduate and
firstyear graduate textbook that introduces students to introductory
topics in real analysis (or real variables), point set topology,
and the calculus of variations. This classroomtested book features
over 350 endofchapter exercises that clearly develop and reinforce
conceptual topics. It also provides an excellent review chapter
on math foundations topics, as well as accessible coverage of
classical topics, such as Weirstrass Approximation Theorem,
AscoliArzela Theorem and SchroederBernstein Theorem. Explanations
and discussions of key concepts are so well done that Real Analysis
and Foundations will also provide valuable information for professional
aerospace and structural engineers.

This book is an excellent text for understanding the foundations
of Analysis. I have used this book as a suplement for several
math classes. It is a good refrence tool for math majors.
Review of S.G. Algebra for College
Editorial review
Wavelets is a carefully organized and edited collection of extended
survey papers addressing key topics in the mathematical foundations
and applications of wavelet theory. The first part of the book
is devoted to the fundamentals of wavelet analysis. The construction
of wavelet bases and the fast computation of the wavelet transform
in both continuous and discrete settings is covered. The theory
of frames, dilation equations, and local Fourier bases are also
presented. The second part of the book discusses applications
of signal analysis, while the third part covers operator analysis
and partial differential equations. Each chapter in these sections
provides an uptodate introduction to such topics as sampling
theory, probability and statistics, compression, numerical analysis,
turbulence, operator theory, and harmonic analysis.The book
is ideal for a general scientific and engineering audience,
yet it is mathematically precise. It will be an especially useful
reference for harmonic analysts, partial differential equation
researchers, signal processing engineers, numerical analysts,
fluids researchers, and applied mathematicians.

The textbook, actually a collection of lectures, provides a
lot of material and examples, and it tries to lead the reader
from the basics of subject to the applications of wavelets.
Despite of the wide range presented by the chapters, the high
reciprocal independence and the completness of proposed path,
as an introductory book I would prefer the classical "Ten
Lectures on Wavelets", even if BenedettoFrazier work could
be more suitable to get ataglance what people are doing (i.e.
were doing at the moment of publication) with wavelets.
Review of S.G. College Algebra W /Applications
Editorial review
Based on a conference held in Fayetteville, Arkansas, April
1993, this proceedings volume contain descriptions of the applications
of Clifford algebras in analysis, primarily the impact of Clifford
analysis on harmonic analysis. Of particular interest is the
paper based on the lectures of principal speaker Alan McIntosh,
of Macquarie U., Australia, which provides a detailed account
of the links between Clifford algebras, monogenic and harmonic
functions, and the correspondence between monogenic functions
and holomorphic functions of several complex variables under
Fourier transforms. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc.,

I'm a newcomer to the field, and after trying several other
books, this one was my ticket. Clifford analysis has recently
emerged as a subject of fundamental importance in mathematics,
physics, and engineering. Since the first text on the subject
appeared in 1982, the field has undergone rapid and significant
changes. Although the book under review is a conference proceedings,
I found its introductory portions so well crafted that I was
able to learn the fundamentals while being led to the frontiers
of current knowledge. Obviously a lot of rigorous editorial
work has gone in to make this far from the usual volume of proceedings.
And the selection of material was no less careful, resulting
in a broad spectrum of important research while avoiding fringe
topics of little general interest. In addition, there is 16page
"Problem Book" where all participants got a rare chance
to state what are, in their opinions, some of the great open
problems in the field. Welldone!

This series easily contains the best algebra one worksheetsI've
ever come across. They cover absolutely every concept in thefirst
year algebra textbooks (although not necessarily in the same
order, which is why it's really important to get each of the
4 books). They provide wonderful practice for students struggling
with algebra for several reasons. 1) They begin each section
by grouping problems by solving technique, so that the student
experiences the same method repetitively. The later pages in
a section mix the problems so that the students must decide
which technique to use. 2) The quantity of exercises alone is
really helpful  for students for whom repetition is the key,
the number of easy to "intermediate" exercises provides
enough practice to help the material "stick" with
the students.

Hands on Algebra appears to rely heavily on Algebra tiling.
That is, using tiles to demonstrate factoring, polynomial multiplication,
etc. I was looking for more of a projects book. If you are looking
for a book on how to use tiles in the classroom, THIS IS IT.
Otherwwise, look elsewhere.

My major complaint with this book is that there is too much
TEXT!The author is apparently unaware that teachers need activities
QUICKLY! I like reading, but when I want math activities, I
don't want to have to read 600 pages to get them!Some of the
material is way too elementary for highschool students. Many
of the activities are too complicated. Students who don't understand
basic math aren't going to understand the directions to the
activities either! Also, most of the material in the book is
common knowledge and is available from other sources.

for 8th grade. I will probably refer back to this book until
about 11th grade.
