How to Prove It: A Structured Approach, 2nd Edition
618Geared to preparing students to make the transition from solving problems to proving theorems, this text teaches them the techniques needed to read and write proofs. The book begins with the basic concepts of logic and set theory, to familiarize students with the language of mathematics and how it is interpreted. These concepts are used as the basis for a stepbystep breakdown of the most important techniques used in constructing proofs. To help students construct their own proofs, this new …

Basic Math and PreAlgebra For Dummies
617Basic Math & PreAlgebra For Dummies, 2nd Edition (9781119293637) was previously published as Basic Math & PreAlgebra For Dummies, 2nd Edition (9781118791981). While this version features a new Dummies cover and design, the content is the same as the prior release and should not be considered a new or updated product. Tips for simplifying tricky basic math and prealgebra operations Whether you’re a student preparing to take algebra or a parent who wants or needs to brush up on basic math, t…

Great Mambo Chicken And The Transhuman Condition: Science Slightly Over The Edge
514Enter the gray area between overheated imagination and overheated reality, and meet a network of scientists bent on creating artificial life forms, building time machines, hatching plans for dismantling the sun, enclosing the solar system in a cosmic eggshell, and faxing human minds to the far side of the galaxy. With Ed Regis as your guide, walk the fine line between science fact and fiction on this freewheeling and riotously funny tour through some of the most serious science there is….

Exploring Creation with Biology (Textbook Only)
386This course is designed to be the student’s first high school science course. Typically, we recommend that the student take this course during the same year that he or she is taking Algebra 1. Exploring Creation with Biology is a collegeprep biology course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. With a strong emphasis on the vocabulary of biology, the course provides the student with a strong background in the scientific method, the fivekingdom …

Computability and Logic
316I’ve nearly completed my textbook on propositional & predicate logic – What would be good to learn next and what’s a good text for it?
Computability and Logic has become a classic because of its accessibility to students without a mathematical background and because it covers not simply the staple topics of an intermediate logic course, such as Godel’s incompleteness theorems, but also a large number of optional topics, from Turing’s theory of computability to Ramsey’s theorem. Including a selection of exercises, adjusted for this edition, at the end of each chapter, it offers a new and simpler treatment of the representabi… more about book… 
Probability Theory: The Logic of Science
312“Alan: Or, My Friend the Utility Monster”
Going beyond the conventional mathematics of probability theory, this study views the subject in a wider context. It discusses new results, along with applications of probability theory to a variety of problems. The book contains many exercises and is suitable for use as a textbook on graduatelevel courses involving data analysis. Aimed at readers already familiar with applied mathematics at an advanced undergraduate level or higher, it is of interest to scientists concerned with inference f… more about book… 
Precalculus: A Prelude to Calculus
287Sheldon Axler’s Precalculus focuses only on topics that students actually need to succeed in calculus. Because of this, Precalculus is a very manageable size even though it includes a student solutions manual. The book is geared towards courses with intermediate algebra prerequisites and it does not assume that students remember any trigonometry. It covers topics such as inverse functions, logarithms, halflife and exponential growth, area, e, the exponential function, the natural logarithm…

Mathematical Proofs: A Transition to Advanced Mathematics (2nd Edition)
228Mathematical Proofs: A Transition to Advanced Mathematics, 2/e, prepares students for the more abstract mathematics courses that follow calculus. This text introduces students to proof techniques and writing proofs of their own. As such, it is an introduction to the mathematics enterprise, providing solid introductions to relations, functions, and cardinalities of sets. KEY TOPICS: Communicating Mathematics, Sets, Logic, Direct Proof and Proof by Contrapositive, More on Direct Proof and Pro…
