Overview

Transition to Advanced Mathematics / Edition 6

Successfully addressing the frustration many students feel as they make the transition from beginning calculus to a more rigorous level of mathematics, A Transition to Advanced Mathematics provides a firm foundation in the major ideas needed for continued work in the discipline. The authors guide students to think and to express themselves mathematically—to analyze a situation, extract pertinent facts, and draw appropriate conclusions. With their proven approach, Smith, Eggen, and St. Andre introduce students to rigorous thinking about sets, relations, functions and cardinality. The text also includes introductions to modern algebra and analysis with sufficient depth to capture some of their spirit and characteristics.

About the Author

The authors are the leaders in this course area. They decided to write this text based upon a successful transition course that Richard St. Andre developed at Central Michigan University in the early 1980s. This was the first text on the market for a transition to advanced mathematics course and it has remained at the top as the leading text in the market. Douglas Smith is Professor of Mathematics at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Dr. Smith's fields of interest include Combinatorics / Design Theory (Team Tournaments, Latin Squares, and applications), Mathematical Logic, Set Theory, and Collegiate Mathematics Education.


Maurice Eggen is Professor of Computer Science at Trinity University. Dr. Eggen's research areas include Parallel and Distributed Processing, Numerical Methods, Algorithm Design, and Functional Programming.


Richard St. Andre is Associate Dean of the College of Science and Technology at Central Michigan University. Dr. St. Andre's teaching interests are quite diverse with a particular interest in lower division service courses in both mathematics and computer science.
