9781330260166: Algebra an Elementary Text Book for the Higher Classes of Secondary Schools and for Colleges, Vol. 1 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Algebra an Elementary Text Book for the Higher Classes of Secondary Schools and for Colleges, Vol. 1

The comparatively rapid sale of an edition of over two thousand copies of this volume has shown that it has, to some extent at least, filled a vacant place in our educational system. The letters which I have received from many parts of the United Kingdom, and from America, containing words of encouragement and of useful criticism, have also strengthened me in the hope that my labour has not been in vain. It would be impossible to name here all the friends who have thus favoured me; and I take this opportunity of offering them collectively my warmest thanks.

The present edition has been thoroughly revised and corrected. The first chapter has been somewhat simplified; and, partly owing to experience with my own pupils, partly in consequence of some acute criticism sent to me by Mr. Levett of Manchester, the chapters on Indices have been recast, and, I think, greatly improved. In the verification and correction of the results of the exercises I have been indebted in a special degree to the Rev. John Wilson, Mathematical Tutor in Edinburgh.

The only addition of any consequence is a sketch of Horner's Method, inserted in chapter xv. I had originally intended to place this in Part II.; but, acting on a suggestion of Mr. Hayward's, I have now added it to Part I.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Algebra, Vol. 1: An Elementary d104-Book for the Higher Classes of Secondary Schools and for Colleges IN this Edition considerable alterations have been made in chapter xii. In particular, the proof of the theorem that every integral equation has a root has been amplified, and also illustrated by graphical considerations. An Appendix has been added dealing with the general algebraic solution of Cubic and Biquadratic Equations; with the reducibility of equations generally; and with the possibility of solution by means of square roots. As the theorems established have interesting applications in Ele mentary Geometry, it is believed that they may find an appropriate place in an Elementary work on Algebra.
