Elements of Mathematics, Book 5: Functions.
Exner, Robert; And Others
One of 12 books developed for use with the core material (Book O) of the Elements of Mathematics Program, this text covers material well beyond the scope of the usual secondary mathematics sequences. These materials are designed for highly motivated students with strong verbal abilities; mathematical theories and ideas are developed through problem situations and explanatory materials. The functions discussed in this volume include sequences, homomorphisms between abstract structures and polynomials. Sequences are discussed in detail; the summation notation is introduced, and mathematical induction is studied. Matrices, counting theorems, and derivatives of polynomials are among the diverse topics covered within the framework of functions. (SD)
