Focusing on an process of fixing rigorous difficulties and studying how one can turn out, this quantity is targeted on particular content material issues, straight forward quantity concept and algebraic polynomials. the ease to readers who're relocating from calculus to extra summary arithmetic is to procure the power to appreciate proofs via use of the ebook and the multitude of proofs and difficulties that might be coated all through. This ebook is intended to be a transitional precursor to extra complicated subject matters in research, complicated quantity concept, and summary algebra. to accomplish the target of conceptual knowing, a good number of difficulties and examples can be interspersed via each bankruptcy. the issues are regularly offered in a multi-step and infrequently very not easy, requiring the reader to consider proofs, counter-examples, and conjectures. past the undergraduate arithmetic scholar viewers, the textual content may also provide a rigorous remedy of arithmetic content material (numbers and algebra) for high-achieving highschool scholars. additionally, potential lecturers will upload to the breadth of the viewers as math schooling majors, will comprehend extra completely tools of facts, and may upload to the intensity in their mathematical wisdom. some time past, PNA has been taught in a "problem fixing in center college” direction (twice), to a really complex highschool scholars path (three semesters), and 3 instances as a secondary source for a direction for destiny highschool academics. PNA is acceptable for secondary math academics who search for fabric to inspire and inspire extra excessive attaining students.
