**Geometry**

- Geometry and Its Applications by Walter A. Meyer Meyer's Geometry and Its Applications, Second Edition, combines traditional geometry with current ideas to present a modern approach that is grounded in real-world applications. It balances the deductive approach with discovery learning, and introduces axiomatic, Euclidean geometry, non-Euclidean geometry, and transformational geometry. The text integrates applications and examples throughout and includes historical notes in many chapters. The Second Edition of Geometry and Its Applications is a significant text for any college or university that focuses on geometry's usefulness in other disciplines. It is especially appropriate for engineering and science majors, as well as future mathematics teachers.Call Number: 516 Mey 2006ISBN: 0123694272Publication Date: 2006
- Make: Geometry by Joan Horvath; Rich CameronCall Number: 519 HorISBN: 9781680456714Publication Date: 08-17-2021Geometry, of all the branches of mathematics, is the one that is most easily visualized by making something. However, it is all too easy to reduce it to reams of formulas to memorize and proofs to replicate. This book aims to take geometry back to its practical roots with 3D printed models and puzzles as well as demonstrations with household objects like flashlights and paper towel tubes.

**Trigonometry**

- Trigonometry Demystified by Stan Gibilisco CALCULATE THIS: TRIGONOMETRY JUST GOT A LOT EASIER TO LEARN Now anyone with an interest in basic, practical trigonometry can master it -- without formal training, unlimited time, or a genius IQ. In "Trigonometry Demystified, " best-selling author Stan Gibilisco provides a fun, effective, and totally painless way to learn the fundamentals and general concepts of trigonometry. With "Trigonometry Demystified" you master the subject one simple step at a time -- at your own speed. Unlike most books on trigonometry, this book uses prose and illustrations to describe the concepts where others leave you pondering abstract symbology. This unique self-teaching guide offers questions at the end of each chapter and section to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 100-question final exam to reinforce the entire book. Simple enough for beginners but challenging enough for professional enrichment, "Trigonometry Demystified" is your direct route to learning or brushing up on trigonometry. Learn all aspects of trigonometry: * How angles are expressed * The relationships between angles and distances * Calculating distances based on parallax * Coordinate systems and navigation * And much moreCall Number: EBSCO eBook CollectionISBN: 0071433880Publication Date: 2003
- An Introduction to Trigonometry and Its Applications by Vasile PostolicaCall Number: ProQuestCentralISBN: 9781608059515Publication Date: 10-03-2014An Introduction to Trigonometry and its Applications presents a systematic approach to explain trigonometry concepts and applications.

**Statistics**

- Translating Statistics into Better Decisions by Victoria Cox Examine and solve the common misconceptions and fallacies that non-statisticians bring to their interpretation of statistical results. Explore the many pitfalls that non-statisticians--and also statisticians who present statistical reports to non-statisticians--must avoid if statistical results are to be correctly used for evidence-based business decision making. Victoria Cox, senior statistician at the United Kingdom's Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), distills the lessons of her long experience presenting the actionable results of complex statistical studies to users of widely varying statistical sophistication across many disciplines: from scientists, engineers, analysts, and information technologists to executives, military personnel, project managers, and officials across UK government departments, industry, academia, and international partners. The author shows how faulty statistical reasoning often undermines the utility of statistical results even among those with advanced technical training. Translating Statistics teaches statistically naive readers enough about statistical questions, methods, models, assumptions, and statements that they will be able to extract the practical message from statistical reports and better constrain what conclusions cannot be made from the results. To non-statisticians with some statistical training, this book offers brush-ups, reminders, and tips for the proper use of statistics and solutions to common errors. To fellow statisticians, the author demonstrates how to present statistical output to non-statisticians to ensure that the statistical results are correctly understood and properly applied to real-world tasks and decisions. The book avoids algebra and proofs, but it does supply code written in R for those readers who are motivated to work out examples. Pointing along the way to instructive examples of statistics gone awry, Translating Statistics walks readers through the typical course of a statistical study, progressing from the experimental design stage through the data collection process, exploratory data analysis, descriptive statistics, uncertainty, hypothesis testing, statistical modelling and multivariate methods, to graphs suitable for final presentation. The steady focus throughout the book is on how to turn the mathematical artefacts and specialist jargon that are second nature to statisticians into plain English for corporate customers and stakeholders. The final chapter neatly summarizes the book's lessons and insights for accurately communicating statistical reports to the non-statisticians who commission and act on them. What You'll Learn Recognize and avoid common errors and misconceptions that cause statistical studies to be misinterpreted and misused by non-statisticians in organizational settings Gain a practical understanding of the methods, processes, capabilities, and caveats of statistical studies to improve the application of statistical data to business decisions See how to code statistical solutions in R Who This Book Is For Non-statisticians--including both those with and without an introductory statistics course under their belts--who consume statistical reports in organizational settings, and statisticians who seek guidance for reporting statistical studies to non-statisticians in ways that will be accurately understood and will inform sound business and technical decisionsCall Number: Skillsoft BooksISBN: 9781484222553Publication Date: 2017
- Statistics for the Terrified by John H. KranzlerCall Number: 519.5 KarISBN: 9781538100288Publication Date: 12-01-2018Statistics for the Terrified offers a clear and concise introduction to statistics. Perfect as a brief core or supplementary text for undergraduate courses in statistics and research methods.

**Algebra**

- Numerical Linear Algebra with Applications by William Ford Numerical Linear Algebra with Applications is designed for those who want to gain a practical knowledge of modern computational techniques for the numerical solution of linear algebra problems, using MATLAB as the vehicle for computation. The book contains all the material necessary for a first year graduate or advanced undergraduate course on numerical linear algebra with numerous applications to engineering and science. With a unified presentation of computation, basic algorithm analysis, and numerical methods to compute solutions, this book is ideal for solving real-world problems. The text consists of six introductory chapters that thoroughly provide the required background for those who have not taken a course in applied or theoretical linear algebra. It explains in great detail the algorithms necessary for the accurate computation of the solution to the most frequently occurring problems in numerical linear algebra. In addition to examples from engineering and science applications, proofs of required results are provided without leaving out critical details. The Preface suggests ways in which the book can be used with or without an intensive study of proofs. This book will be a useful reference for graduate or advanced undergraduate students in engineering, science, and mathematics. It will also appeal to professionals in engineering and science, such as practicing engineers who want to see how numerical linear algebra problems can be solved using a programming language such as MATLAB, MAPLE, or Mathematica.
