Math for Information Technology, this textbook is designed for students who take one math course to prepare for an IT career. Innovative approach integrates problem solving (the single most important IT skill) with traditional math topics and computer programming concepts to give students all the essential skills they need to prepare for a first course in computer programming. Step-by-step guidelines make learning accessible to students with pre-algebra math skills. Topics match those needed in future IT courses and on the job: Problem Solving tools: A methodology appropriate to IT is introduced in the first chapter and reinforced throughout the text.Computational tools: Exponents, Numbers Systems, Unit Analysis, A Little Algebra, GraphingAlgorithmic tools: Computer Programming Concepts, Computer Logic, Structured Program DesignAppendices: Arithmetic Review, More Algebra, GeometryIntroductory problem opens each chapter, familiarizing students with some of the important topics before they encounter all the conceptual details of the chapter. How to Use This Chapter section places each chapter within the context of the course. Application to Information Technology sidebars point out connections between various math topics and the field of IT. Examples and practice problems at several levels of difficulty are amply presented. Wherever applicable, practice problems are related to IT. Full step-by-step solutions to those even-numbered problems answered at the back of each chapter are available to students in the supplemental students' solutions manual. Written by an Information Technology professional for students aspiring to be IT professionals, this book has all the essential tools needed to begin the journey.
