Description:

Rewarding undergraduate text, derived from an experimental program in teaching mathematics at the secondary-school level. "For high school seniors or college freshmen with a background in algebra and trigonometry, the book should provide a good introduction to matrices, vector algebra, analytical geometry, and calculus. The work's solid modern mathematical content and its personality recommend consideration as a text or as stimulating supplementary reading."--American Scientist. Unabridged republication of the edition published by Harper & Row, New York, 1964. Over 200 figures.
