Book Description:
Algebra for Athletes capitalizes on the wealth of mathematical knowledge students already possess because of their familiarity with the scorekeeping and motion in sports. In this way, the book takes advanced concepts such as exponents, vector multiplication, and the unit circle to relate them to students everyday lives. While the book is meant to appeal to students who might not otherwise choose to study algebra, it employs highly challenging material, much of which is not taught until engineering school. Thus the book also provides a window to the professional world. Applications in accounting, aeronautical engineering, civil engineering and other fields are presented along with the sports examples.
