Thomas W. Hungerford received his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. He has taught at the University of Washington and at Cleveland State University, and is now at St. Louis University. His research fields are algebra and mathematics education. He is the author of many notable books for undergraduate and graduate level courses. In addition to ABSTRACT ALGEBRA: AN INTRODUCTION, these include: ALGEBRA (Springer, Graduate Texts in Mathematics, #73. 1974); MATHEMATICS WITH APPLICATIONS, Tenth Edition (Pearson, 2011; with M. Lial and J. Holcomb); and CONTEMPORARY PRECALCULUS, Fifth Edition (Cengage, 2009; with D. Shaw).Review:
"It is obvious that the author has spent a great deal of time to incorporate technology in an appropriate way. I particularly like the way in which he asks the student to first check graphically the trig identity(s) he/she is trying to prove." "[The] Technology Investigations really help students to have a better and more meaningful understanding of the subject matter. They also help students to have a deeper conceptual understanding. Both the presentation of the materials and the problem sets are excellent. The text contains outstanding applied problems. Additionally, it contains well thought out "Discovery Projects."
"The use of the calculator investigations/explorations within the text does a very good job of illustrating the algebraic properties or solving techniques that are being discussed. The directions are easy to follow and it is clear as to what the student is actually trying to explore." "I found the text easy to read, there were plenty of examples for the students to use to help guide them with the homework, and the page layouts were neither cluttered nor confusing."
