Pat McKeague's seventh edition of BASIC MATHEMATICS is the traditional text for the modern student. Retaining the clarity and patience in explanation and concept development that has made it the book of choice for so many over the years, this new edition is replete with new examples, applications, and fresh new technology options. Throughout this text, you'll find hundreds of new and relevant applications, with timely references to topics like gas prices and to companies like Google and Yahoo. Real data is used throughout, and wherever possible, has been updated to reflect recent changes. By showing how mathematics is used every day, the author makes students feel more at ease with the topics at hand. In a course where many students are entering with math anxiety, McKeague almost immediately calms students with chapter and section introductions, provides just in time study tips, and then helps students prepare with Getting Ready for Class boxes found throughout the text. This new edition comes complete with Enhanced WebAssign (EWA), the easy to use homework management system. With EWA, you can assign, collect, grade, and record homework assignments via the web. This complete learning system for students includes text-specific exercises, as well as tutorials, videos, and links to online tutoring, and eBook sections of the text.

These proceedings report on the conference "Math Everywhere", celebrating the 60th birthday of the mathematician Vincenzo Capasso. The conference promoted ideas Capasso has pursued and shared the open atmosphere he is known for. Topic sections include: Deterministic and Stochastic Systems. Mathematical Problems in Biology, Medicine and Ecology. Mathematical Problems in Industry and Economics. The broad spectrum of contributions to this volume demonstrates the truth of its title: Math is Everywhere, indeed.

The unit process approach, common in the field of chemical engineering, was introduced about 1962 to the field of environmental engineering. An understanding of unit processes is the foundation for continued learning and for designing treatment systems. The time is ripe for a new textbook that delineates the role of unit process principles in environmental engineering. Suitable for a two-semester course, Water Treatment Unit Processes: Physical and Chemical provides the grounding in the underlying principles of each unit process that students need in order to link theory to practice. Bridging the gap between scientific principles and engineering practice, the book covers approaches that are common to all unit processes as well as principles that characterize each unit process. Integrating theory into algorithms for practice, Professor Hendricks emphasizes the fundamentals, using simple explanations and avoiding models that are too complex mathematically, allowing students to assimilate principles without getting sidelined by excess calculations. Applications of unit processes principles are illustrated by example problems in each chapter. Student problems are provided at the end of each chapter; the solutions manual can be downloaded from the CRC Press Web site. Excel spreadsheets are integrated into the text as tables designated by a "CD" prefix. Certain spreadsheets illustrate the idea of "scenarios" that emphasize the idea that design solutions depend upon assumptions and the interactions between design variables. The spreadsheets can be downloaded from the CRC web site. The book has been designed so that each unit process topic is self-contained, with sidebars and examples throughout the text. Each chapter has subheadings, so that students can scan the pages and identify important topics with little effort. Problems, references, and a glossary are found at the end of each chapter. Most chapters contain downloadable Excel spreadsheets integrated into the text and appendices with additional information. Appendices at the end of the book provide useful reference material on various topics that support the text. This design allows students at different levels to easily navigate through the book and professors to assign pertinent sections in the order they prefer. The book gives your students an understanding of the broader aspects of one of the core areas of the environmental engineering curriculum and knowledge important for the design of treatment systems.
