its best, technology allows students to explore and discover
mathematical concepts to aid in their understanding. These books
provide a wide variety of engaging activities that can help
students learn mathematical concepts with the TI92. Students
and teachers will enjoy throughout these books the historical
vignettes and cartoons that motivate, enlighten, and entertain.
The pages are filled with stories, applications, mathematical
discussion, examples, solutions, exercises, and investigations.
With or without the T1.92, studentscan benefit from the wealth
of connections that are made in b! ! ringing historical perspective
and modem technology together in solving interesting problems.
Keying sequences guide students through the TI92 menus while
the accompanying discussion develops the mathematics.Investigating
Advanced Algebra with the TI92 has units that include 'Patterns
and Properties of Numbers,"'Polynomials and Rational Functions,"
'Transcendental Functions,' and "Matrices, Linear Systems
and Linear Programming."Investigating Calculus with the
TI92 begins with a unit on sequences and series and then proceeds
to investigations on limits, the derivative, and integrals.
In Investigating Statistics with the TI92, the topics include
numerical and graphical descriptions of data, sampling, probability,
Monte Carlo techniques, regression, and simulations.These books
bring a human dimension to the study of mathematics while showcasing
how technology makes interesting problems accessible to students.
With so much to offer, they will certainly help students master
co! ! ncepts and learn about the power of the TI92.Susan Kornstein,

Review of Advanced Algebra with the TI89
Editorial review
This book is a collection of seventeen explorations in precalculus
mathematics. Each exploration includes a brief exposition, some
worked examples, and about ten student exercises. The explorations
fall into five different units: sequences and series; number
theory, including some theory of equations; complex numbers;
combinatorics and probability; and matrices, linear systems,
and linear programming.Since this book covers only part of a
typical advanced algebra or precalculus syllabus, it is perhaps
most useful as a teacher resource or a source of enrichment
for students capable of independent work in mathematics. As
such, the book has much to recommend it. Some of the more interesting
problems involve using Stirling's formula for approximation
of factorials, Verhulst's logistic equation, and Mendel's experiments.
The author has included some short programs, with no more than
about fifteen lines, that teachers and students might find useful.
Such programs, for exampl! ! e, will enable the user to solve
a linear Diophantine equation, find the sum of a sequence too
long for the TI83 memory, or spend several hours drawing the
Julia set on the calculator screen.Albert Goetz, Ramaz School,

This book places more emphasis on the calculators ability to
do the work for you, it doesn't explain what the calculator
is doing in order to get the solution. Its really aimed at high
school kids who don't have any knowledge of calculus and the
mathematical jokes don't win any prizes. Overall I would reccomend
you go for a maths book and not this book.

The book was helpful in learning how to solve matrices and other
advanced algebra problems. It also had some mathematical history
jokes which were appropriate. It gave some very helpful steps
in learning the details of the TI89, and the easiest way to
use it. I would recommend this book to other students, either
high school, or college level to gain insight into their TI89
before using it in class.

The layout for this book was great! The table of contents of
this book has the subjects listed so you can browse to what
the instructor is covering quickly. When you get to the subject
you are covering in the book the author gives a math review
of history on the subject of math and how it relates with example
problems. Then he covers stepbystep instructions on how to
enter the data into the TI89 (this was very helpful for me)
and then shows what the calculator's results should be. I would
recommend this book as a stepping stone for beginners who plan
on taking PreCalculus in the future with the TI89. I purchased
this book to help me in PreCalculus entering basic data that
was covered in previous Algebra classes. I have not had much
experience with the TI89 and this book was very helpful in
certain subjects than the handbook that came with the TI89
calculator.
Review of Algebra with the TI83 Plus & TI83 Plus SE
Editorial review
An earlier version of this book for the TI83 was favorably
reviewed in The Mathematics Teacher.
Reviewed by a reader, from US
This book has numerous fun, thoughtprovoking exercises for
the motivated algebra student. It includes material on sequences,
series, number theory (integers & complex numbers), combinatorics,
probability, matrices, linear systems & linear programming.This
book is NOT a replacement for either an introductory algebra
book or introductory material covering the use of the TI83
Plus; perhaps an earlier, negative reviewer expected it to to
take the place of basic class instruction. It is, however, a
challenging & useful companion book which provides exercises
above & beyond a standard algebra textbook. I have no affiliation
with the author or anyone else connected with the book. I'm
a very satisfied customer enjoying the challenges posed by the
book, even though some are more advanced than my current level
of knowledge.

This is not the right book if you want to learn algebra and
use the ti 83. Keep the 20 bucks in your pocket and pass it
by. Its algebra title must be a missprint!
Review of Focus on PreAlgebra
Editorial review
Provides an exposition of orthoganal decompositions of complex
simple Lie algebras and associated invariant Euclidean lattices.
The text is divided into two parts. In Part I, the main result
is the complete classification of complex simple Lie algebras
admitting orthogonal decompositions with irreducible automorphism
groups. Part II is devoted to integral Euclidean lattices and
their automorphism groups. New series of even unimodular lattices
are discovered which lead to integral realizations of several
sporadic simple groups and simple groups of Lie type. Recent
work by N. Elkies, R. Gow, and B.H. Gross on lattice constructions
associated with minimal projective representations of finite
groups of Lie type and elliptic curves is studied. Annotation

Review of A Elementary and Intermediate Algebra
Editorial review
Timing issues are of growing importance for the conceptualization
and design of computerbased systems. Timing may simply be essential
for the correct behaviour of a system, e.g. of a controller.
Even if timing is not essential for the correct behaviour of
a system, there may be good reasons to introduce it in such
a way that suitable timing becomes relevant for the correct
behaviour of a complex system. This book is unique in presenting
four algebraic theories about processes, each dealing with timing
from a different point of view, in a coherent and systematic
way. The timing of actions is either relative or absolute and
the underlying time scale is either discrete or continuous.
All presented theories are extensions of the algebra of communicating
processes. The book is essential reading for researchers and
advanced students interested in timing issues in the context
of the design and analysis of concurrent and communicating processes.
Review of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: A Combined Course (with Digital Video Companion CDROM)
Editorial review
Presents a unified theory, with focus on categorical concepts
generalizing the notions of separable and Frobenius algebras,
and discussing relations with smash products, Galois theory
and descent theory. Softcover.
Review of PreAlgebra, Book 1 (Straight Forward Math Series/Book 1)
Editorial review
This textbook presents a survey of research on boolean functions,
circuits, parallel computation models, function algebras, and
proof systems. Its main aim is to elucidate the structure of
"fast" parallel computation. The complexity of parallel
computation is emphasized through a variety of techniques ranging
from finite combinatorics, probability theory and finite group
theory to finite model theory and proof theory. Nonuniform computation
models are studied in the form of boolean circuits; uniform
ones in a variety of forms. Steps in the investigation of nondeterministic
polynomial time are surveyed as is the complexity of various
proof systems. The book will benefit advanced undergraduates
and graduate students as well as researchers in the field of
complexity theory.
Review of Key to Algebra Book 8 Graphs
Editorial review
The aim of this work is the definition of the polyhedral compactification
of the BruhatTits building of a reductive group over a local
field. In addition, an explicit description of the boundary
is given. In order to make this work as selfcontained as possible
and also accessible to nonexperts in BruhatTits theory, the
construction of the BruhatTits building itself is given completely.
