Foundation Maths has been written for students taking higher and further education courses who have not specialised in mathematics on post-16 qualifications and need to use mathematical tools in their courses. It is ideally suited to those studying marketing, business studies, management, science, engineering, social science, geography, combined studies and design. It will be useful for those who lack confidence and who need careful, steady guidance in mathematical methods. For those whose mathematical expertise is already established, the book will be a helpful revision and reference guide. The style of the book also makes it suitable for self-study and distance learning. Features of the book Mathematical processes are described in everyday language mathematical ideas are usually developed by example rather than formal proof, thereby encouraging students' learning. Key points highlight important results that need to be referred to easily or remembered. Worked examples are included throughout the book to reinforce learning. Self-assessment questions are provided at the END of most sections to test understanding of important parts of the section. Answers are given at the back of the book. Exercises provide a key opportunity to develop competence and understanding through practice. Answers are given at the back of the book. Test and assignment exercises (with answers provided in a separate Lecturers' Manual on the website) allow lecturers and tutors to set regular assignments or tests throughout the course. New to this EDITION Six new chapters: Chapter 4 Sets, Chapter 8 Number Bases, Chapter 9 Elementary Logic, Chapter 31 Integration by Parts, Chapter 36 Correlation and Chapter 37 Regression. Extra END-of-chapter questions for students (with answers) on the website at www.pearsoned.co.uk/croft . PowerPoint slides for lecturers on the website featuring Key Points from the book with their related Worked Examples. Anthony Croft has taught mathematics in further and higher education institutions for twenty four years. He is currently Director of the Mathematics Education Centre at Loughborough university, which has been designated a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning by the Higher Education Funding Council for England. He teaches mathematics and engineering undergraduates, and has championed mathematics support for students who find the transition from school to university difficult and for students with learning difficulties. He has AUTHORed many very successful mathematics textbooks including several for engineering students. Robert Davison has twenty five years experience teaching mathematics in both further and higher education. He is currently Head of Quality in the Faculty of Computing Sciences and Engineering at De Montfort University, where he also teaches mathematics. He has AUTHORed many very successful mathematics textbooks including several for engineering students.

Cultural Foundations of Mathematics

The Nature of Mathematical Proof and the Transmission of the Calculus from India to Europe in the 16th C. CE

The Volume Examines, In Depth, The Implications Of Indian History And Philosophy For Contemporary Mathematics And Science. The Conclusions Challenge Current Formal Mathematics And Its Basis In The Western Dogma That Deduction Is Infallible (Or That It Is Less Fallible Than Induction). The Development Of The Calculus In India, Over A Thousand Years, Is Exhaustively Documented In This Volume, Along With Novel Insights, And Is Related To The Key Sources Of Wealth-Monsoon-Dependent Agriculture And Navigation Required For Overseas Trade - And The Corresponding Requirement Of Timekeeping. Refecting The Usual Double Standard Of Evidence Used To Construct Eurocentric History, A Single, New Standard Of Evidence For Transmissions Is Proposed. Using This, It Is Pointed Out That Jesuits In Cochin, Following The Toledo Model Of Translation, Had Long-Term Opportunity To Transmit Indian Calculus Texts To Europe. The European Navigational Problem Of Determining Latitude, Longitude, And Loxodromes, And The 1582 Gregorian Calendar-Reform, Provided Ample Motivation. The Mathematics In These Earlier Indian Texts Suddenly Starts Appearing In European Works From The Mid-16Th Century Onwards, Providing Compelling Circumstantial Evidence. While The Calculus In India Had Valid Pramana, This Differed From Western Notions Of Proof, And The Indian (Algorismus) Notion Of Number Differed From The European (Abacus) Notion. Hence, Like Their Earlier Difficulties With The Algorismus, Europeans Had Difficulties In Understanding The Calculus, Which, Like Computer Technology, Enhanced The Ability To Calculate, Albeit In A Way Regarded As Epistemologically Insecure. Present-Day Difficulties In Learning Mathematics Are Related, Via Phylogeny Is Ontogeny , To These Historical Difficulties In Assimilating Imported Mathematics. An Appendix Takes Up Further Contemporary Implications Of The New Philosophy Of Mathematics For The Extension Of The Calculus, Which Is Needed To Handle The Infinities Arising In The Study Of Shock Waves And The Renormalization Problem Of Quantum Field Theory.
