Synopsis

The need for improved mathematics education at the high school and

college levels has never been more apparent than in the 1990s. As

early as the 1960s, I. M. Gel'fand and his colleagues in the USSR

thought hard about this same question and developed a style for

presenting basic mathematics in a clear and simple form that engaged

the curiosity and intellectual interest of thousands of high school

and college students. These same ideas, this same content, unchanged

by over thirty years of experience and mathematical development, are

available in the present books to any student who is willing to read,

to be stimulated and to learn.

"The Method of Coordinates" is a way of transferring geometric images

into formulas, a method for describing pictures by numbers and letters

denoting constants and variables. It is fundamental to the study of

calculus and other mathematical topics. Teachers of mathematics will

find here a fresh understanding of the subject and a valuable path to

the training of students in mathematical concepts and skills.
