**Business Statistics**

Prepares students to meet the unique challenges of today's business environment. It also presents a solid foundation in traditional inferential statistics, making the concepts of processes, variability, and quality unifying themes throughout the book. The challenges are met through readable and interesting text discussions; inclusion of real business applications, scenarios, and real data; emphasis on the use of statistics for problem solving and decision making; and various learning and motivational features.

**Advanced Engineering Mathematics**

A book of applied and engineering mathematics, written in traditional notation and language, for students of science, engineering, and applied mathematics. It contains examples drawn from a wide spectrum of physical and mathematical disciplines, and provides a fairly complete curriculum in undergraduate applied mathematics.

**Discovering Calculus with Maple**

Contains examples of great detail showing many new Maple features and expanding the use of a computer algebra system in solving different types of problems.

**Maple V: Mathematics and its Application**

This volume contains the contributed papers of the Maple Summer Workshop and Symposium, MSWS '94, which reflects the growing community of Maple users around the world. Also included are brief abstracts of the talks by the invited speakers.

**Maple Labs for Linear Algebra**

These labs are a transcription into Maple of an equivalent set of MATLAB linear algebra labs keyed to Terry Lawson's text, Linear Algebra. The original set of labs was written by Terry Lawson and is accompanied by a number of additional MATLAB files that generate the LAWSON TOOLBOX.

**Maple via Calculus: A Tutorial Approach**

"Modern software tools like Maple have the potential to alter radically the way mathematics is taught, learned, and done." With this principle firmly in mind one can obtain a fresh look at the standard calculus curriculum, colored by the existence of technology like Maple -- a tool that can be used in class during lectures and exams and at home while working assignments, a tool whose universal access will eventually make a software-based approach to mathematics the norm.

**Numerical Analysis: A Practical Approach**

Numerical analysis is a blend of mathematics and computer science that has produced powerful tools for solving otherwise intractable problems in science and engineering. Consequently, this subject can be viewed from the perspective of a mathematician when an algorithm is being created or assessed, a computer scientist when it is implemented in software or modified for optimal performance on a particular device, or a problem solver once a mathematical model is created.
