Ebook: Foundations of Mathematics: A Preparatory Course


This book spares you the entry-level problems of mathematics by entertainingly building a bridge that gently guides you over any shoals and into the heart of college mathematics. The bridge starts on one side with simple number crunching, as you probably encountered it in middle school, and takes you across to the basics of linear algebra, differential calculus, and probability, which will be the main content of your first few semesters. You will always face this content there, and when dealing with it you can then say with confidence, "I know it already!"

The authors have succeeded in writing a mathematics book for students of all disciplines and continuing professional education that is easy to read from cover to cover without getting lost in formalism or humorless dryness, but that nevertheless left you with the necessary knowledge and technical confidence after reading it.

Each chapter is accompanied by exercises that can be used to practice and reinforce the content taught.

This book is a translation of the original German edition Brückenkurs Mathematik by Guido Walz, 4th edition, published by Springer-Verlag GmbH, DE in 2014. The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence (machine translation by the service A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content, so that the book will read stylistically differently from a conventional translation.
