Algebra: A Very Short Introduction Paperback

Part of the Very Short Introductions series

Description

Algebra marked the beginning of modern mathematics, moving it beyond arithmetic, which involves calculations featuring given numbers, to problems where some quantities are unknown.

Now, it stands as a pillar of mathematics, underpinning the quantitative sciences, both social and physical.

This Very Short Introduction explains algebra from scratch.

Over the course of ten logical chapters, Higgins offers a step by step approach for readers keen on developing their understanding of algebra.

Using theory and example, he renews the reader's aquaintance with school mathematics, before taking them progressively further and deeper into the subject.

These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.
