About the Author:

J. Douglas Faires, late of Youngstown State University, pursued mathematical interests in analysis, numerical analysis, mathematics history, and problem solving. Dr. Faires won numerous awards, including the Outstanding College-University Teacher of Mathematics by the Ohio Section of MAA and five Distinguished Faculty awards from Youngstown State University, which also awarded him an Honorary Doctor of Science award in 2006.

Jim DeFranza is a Professor of Mathematics at St. Lawrence University. His research interests are in analysis, sequence space theory and summability. He received his PhD from Kent State University.

Review:

"This is one of the best written textbooks I have seen. The writing is not only clear, but is remarkably comprehensible. I could find no example in the draft that I could point to and state that a typical student would have difficulty understanding it. The concepts are well arranged, and the text builds upon ideas in a well-connected sequence. Particularly noteworthy is outstanding explanation of the interrelationship among the various conic sections" "I would definitely recommend adopting this text. It is well written, focused on what the student needs to prepare for calculus, exceptionally well organized, and addresses the use of technology in the most intelligent manner of any text I've seen."

"The length of books published recently is almost absurd, because it does not help students concentrate on the main concepts, but rather diffuses their thoughts in nice picture and/or unneccessary numbers of examples. (Faires and DeFranza's) approach is refreshing."
