Synopses & Reviews
In a departure from traditional teaching methods, this text focuses on theory more than computations, relying on independent study. Its material is geared toward aspects of high-school mathematics that promise to prove particularly useful for future studies and work. The first of three chapters deals with sequences, their definitions, and methods of mathematic induction. The next chapter addresses combinations, and the final chapter examines limits through a series of introductory problems, problems related to the definition of limit, and problems related to the computation of limits. Answers and hints to the test problems are provided, and "road signs" appear in the margins, marking passages requiring particular attention. 1969 edition.
