Used Math by Clifford E. Swartz, is a reference work for the college science instructor or student in search of a quick explanation of the mathematics found in the first two years of the college science curriculum. The book provides numerous examples that are drawn from actual situations encountered in science courses.
The book covers a broad range of subjects, including reporting and analyzing uncertainty, units and dimensions, graphs, the simple functions of applied math, statistics, quadratic and high power equations, and simultaneous equations. Other chapters are devoted to determinants, vectors, complex numbers, calculus-differentiation, integration, series and approximations, common differential equations, and differential operators.
Used Math contains many useful reference tables and summaries of formulas and techniques.

Clifford E. Swartz (1925 -2010) was a founding member of the physics department faculty at Stony Brook University (State University of New York at Stony Brook) and editor for almost 30 years of The Physics Teacher, a monthly journal published by the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT).
Swartz was legendary for his lectures, demonstrations, and enthusiasm for teaching physics. He was widely known for his efforts to change the teaching of science, especially physics, so that students from elementary school through college would learn by doing experiments rather than passively watching teacher demonstrations and lectures. He authored or co-authored more than 30 books, most of them physics books and textbooks.
Dr. Swartz was a 1945 graduate of the University of Rochester, where he earned his PhD in physics in 1951. Awards included: Oersted Medal and the Melba Newell Phillips Award, both presented by AAPT, and the Outstanding Civilian Service Medal, presented by the Department of the Army.
