For every student who has ever found the answer to a particular calculus equation elusive or a certain theorem impossible to remember, QuickStudy comes to the rescue! This 3-panel (6-page) comprehensive guide offers clear and concise examples, detailed explanations and colorful graphs--all guaranteed to make calculus a breeze! Easy-to-use icons help students go right to the equations and problems they need to learn, and call out helpful tips to use and common pitfalls to avoid.
Calculus 2, focusing on integral calculus, is the gateway to higher level mathematics of which the best degrees and careers are built upon. The core essentials can be used along with your text and lectures, as a review before testing, or as a memory companion that keeps key answers always at your fingertips. Suggested uses: * Quick Reference - instead of digging into the textbook to find a core answer you need while studying, use the guide to reinforce quickly and repeatedly * Memory - refreshing your memory repeatedly is a foundation of studying, have the core answers handy so you can focus on understanding the concepts * Test Prep - no student should be cramming, but if you are, there is no better tool for that final review
The title of this book is intended to be more of a challenge than a promise. No one can promise you that you will learn differential equations in 24 hours. That is up to you. What this book does is it makes it possible to learn basic differential equations in the minimum amount of time needed. It has a concise style of presentation and the right number of exercises and examples-not too many, not too few. All of the solutions to all of the exercises are presented in detail in Appendix 1. This allows reinforcement learning and verification of success. Biographical sketches of important mathematicians are included to provide additional motivation; however, they can be skipped in the interest of further time savings. The material which can be skipped appears in italics. The content taught here is equivalent to the material presented in the junior-level course in differential equations that the author teaches at University of Colorado Denver. It grew out of his earlier book, Shortcut to Ordinary Differential Equations. The present book, expanded slightly and equipped with all of the solutions, covers basically the same topics that were taught in a junior-level course in differential equations that the author took at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
BarCharts' handy 3-panel guide can make even the most complicated probability equations a breeze. Definitions, hints and sample problems are contained within each page, along with full-color illustrations and graphs highlighting specific problems. The "probability" of attaining better grades with this excellent reference tool is very good!
Through the use of numerous examples that illustrate how to solve important applications using Maple V, Release 2, this book provides readers with a solid, hands-on introduction to ordinary and partial differental equations. Includes complete coverage of constructing and numerically computing and approximating solutions to ordinary and partial equations.
Covers ODEs and PDEs—in One Textbook Until now, a comprehensive textbook covering both ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and partial differential equations (PDEs) didn’t exist. Fulfilling this need, Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations provides a complete and accessible course on ODEs and PDEs using many examples and exercises as well as intuitive, easy-to-use software. Teaches the Key Topics in Differential Equations The text includes all the topics that form the core of a modern undergraduate or beginning graduate course in differential equations. It also discusses other optional but important topics such as integral equations, Fourier series, and special functions. Numerous carefully chosen examples offer practical guidance on the concepts and techniques. Guides Students through the Problem-Solving Process Requiring no user programming, the accompanying computer software allows students to fully investigate problems, thus enabling a deeper study into the role of boundary and initial conditions, the dependence of the solution on the parameters, the accuracy of the solution, the speed of a series convergence, and related questions. The ODE module compares students’ analytical solutions to the results of computations while the PDE module demonstrates the sequence of all necessary analytical solution steps.
