Back cover copy

After 12 textbooks, 23 editions, and 20 years of front-line education experience, best-selling author Nigel Cook has written this text as a complete math course for computer technology students. This finely tuned, carefully tested, and accuracy checked volume is organized into two parts. The first seven chapters in Part A begin at the very beginning with fractions and decimals, and proceed on to establish a solid foundation in signed numbers, exponents, the metric system, algebra, trigonometry, logarithms, and graphs. The following six chapters in Part B are devoted to computer mathematics, including analog to digital conversion, digital number systems and codes, logic gates, Boolean algebra, binary arithmetic, and computers and programming. As with any topic to be learned, the method of presentation can make a big difference between clear comprehension and complete confusion. Employing an "integrated math applications" approach, this text reinforces all math topics with extensive applications to show the student the value of math as a tool. Therefore, if the need for math is instantly demonstrated, the tool is retained. New to This Edition Two new chapters have been added to expand on the mathematics needed for computer technologyAnalog to Digital and Introduction to Computers and Programming. Numerous mini-math applications have now been integrated into the material so that the student can immediately witness the practical applications of mathematics. A Companion Website at has an additional bank of questions that further tests student understanding. The end-of-section self-test evaluation points list the objectives and a set of questions that test the student's level of comprehension. The cheek-box design invites students to take an active role in monitoring their progress. Margin terms highlight key terminology as it is introduced. "show more
