Elementary Algebra by John ReddenISBN: 9781453300923
Publication Date: 20110101
"It is essential to lay a solid foundation in mathematics if a student is to be competitive in today's global market. The importance of algebra, in particular, cannot be overstated, as it is the basis of all mathematical modeling used in applications found in all disciplines. Traditionally, the study of algebra is separated into a two parts, elementary algebra and intermediate algebra. This textbook, Elementary Algebra, is the first part, written in a clear and concise manner, making no assumption of prior algebra experience. It carefully guides students from the basics to the more advanced techniques required to be successful in the next course."  works with MAT 050

A Spiral Workbook for Discrete Mathematics by Harris KwongISBN: 9781942341161
Publication Date: 20151106
"This is a text that covers the standard topics in a sophomorelevel course in discrete mathematics: logic, sets, proof techniques, basic number theory, functions, relations, and elementary combinatorics, with an emphasis on motivation. It explains and clarifies the unwritten conventions in mathematics, and guides the students through a detailed discussion on how a proof is revised from its draft to a final polished form. Handson exercises help students understand a concept soon after learning it. The text adopts a spiral approach: many topics are revisited multiple times, sometimes from a different perspective or at a higher level of complexity. The goal is to slowly develop students’ problemsolving and writing skills."  works with MAT 102


Trigonometry by Ted Sundstrom; Steven SchlickerPublication Date: 2016
"This trigonometry textbook is different than other trigonometry books in that it is free to download, and the reader is expected to do more than read the book and is expected to study the material in the book by working out examples rather than just reading about them. So this book is not just about mathematical content but is also about the process of learning and doing mathematics. That is, this book is designed not to be just casually read but rather to be engaged."  works with MAT 105

College Algebra by Jay AbramsonISBN: 9781938168383
Publication Date: 20150213
"College Algebra provides a comprehensive exploration of algebraic principles and meets scope and sequence requirements for a typical introductory algebra course. The modular approach and richness of content ensure that the book meets the needs of a variety of courses. College Algebra offers a wealth of examples with detailed, conceptual explanations, building a strong foundation in the material before asking students to apply what they’ve learned."  works with MAT 122

College Algebra by Carl Stitz; Jeff ZeagerPublication Date: 2013
"College Algebra is an introductory text for a college algebra survey course. The material is presented at a level intended to prepare students for Calculus while also giving them relevant mathematical skills that can be used in other classes. The authors describe their approach as "Functions First," believing introducing functions first will help students understand new concepts more completely."  works with MAT 122

Precalculus by Carl Stitz; Jeff ZeagerPublication Date: 2013
"A casual glance through the Table of Contents of most of the major publishers' College Algebra books reveals nearly isomorphic content in both order and depth. Our Table of Contents shows a different approach, one that might be labeled “Functions First.” To truly use The Rule of Four, that is, in order to discuss each new concept algebraically, graphically, numerically and verbally, it seems completely obvious to us that one would need to introduce functions first. (Take a moment and compare our ordering to the classic “equations first, then the Cartesian Plane and THEN functions” approach seen in most of the major players.) We then introduce a class of functions and discuss the equations, inequalities (with a heavy emphasis on sign diagrams) and applications which involve functions in that class."  works with MAT 132

Precalculus by Jay AbramsonISBN: 9781938168345
Publication Date: 20141023
"Precalculus is adaptable and designed to fit the needs of a variety of precalculus courses. It is a comprehensive text that covers more ground than a typical one or twosemester collegelevel precalculus course. The content is organized by clearlydefined learning objectives and includes worked examples that demonstrate problemsolving approaches in an accessible way."  works with MAT 132

Precalculus by Thomas Tradler; Holly CarleyPublication Date: 2015
"These are notes for a course in precalculus, as it is taught at New York City College of Technology  CUNY (where it is offered under the course number MAT 1375). Our approach is calculator based. For this, we will use the currently standard TI84 calculator, and in particular, many of the examples will be explained and solved with it. However, we want to point out that there are also many other calculators that are suitable for the purpose of this course and many of these alternatives have similar functionalities as the calculator that we have chosen to use. An introduction to the TI84 calculator together with the most common applications needed for this course is provided in appendix A. In the future we may expand on this by providing introductions to other calculators or computer algebra systems."  works with MAT 132

Precalculus: An Investigation of Functions by David Lippman; Melonie RasmussenPublication Date: 2017

Introductory Statistics by Douglas S. Shafer; Zhiyi ZhangISBN: 9781453344873
Publication Date: 20120801
"In many introductory level courses today, teachers are challenged with the task of fitting in all of the core concepts of the course in a limited period of time. The Introductory Statistics teacher is no stranger to this challenge. To add to the difficulty, many textbooks contain an overabundance of material, which not only results in the need for further streamlining, but also in intimidated students. Shafer and Zhang wrote Introductory Statistics by using their vast teaching experience to present a complete look at introductory statistics topics while keeping in mind a realistic expectation with respect to course duration and students' maturity level...."  works with MAT 135

Introductory Statistics v. 1.0 by Saylor AcademyPublication Date: 2012
