**Publisher**: H. Holt & Co. 1920**ISBN/ASIN**: B007JR5LCY**Number of pages**: 459

**Description**:

This book presents a coherent year's work in mathematics for college freshmen, consisting of a study of the elementary functions; algebraic and transcendental, and their applications to problems arising in various fields of knowledge. The treatment is confined to functions of one variable, with incidental exceptions, and complex values of the independent and dependent variables are excluded. The subject matter includes the essentials of plane trigonometry and topics from advanced algebra, analytic geometry, and calculus.
