Summary Of The Book
Challenge And Thrill Of Pre-College Mathematics has been written for students studying in classes 9 to 12. The book attempts to entice them into enjoying mathematics and solving mathematical problems. The authors have attempted to make the book and the subject, interesting, so as to motivate the students who dislike the subject, into enjoying it. For those students who already like mathematics, the book provides an interesting and innovative treatment of the topics covered.
Challenge And Thrill Of Pre-College Mathematics has been written in a comprehensive manner. This book will help children develop a sound mathematical way of thinking.
The first chapter of the book is titled Number Systems. This chapter introduces students to the various classes of numbers. The second chapter, Arithmetic of Integers, throws light on divisibility and the principle of induction. The next chapter, Geometry: Straight Lines and Triangles, and the fourth chapter, Geometry: Circles, covers tangents, constructions, and cyclic quadrilaterals. This is followed by a chapter on Quadratic Equations and Expressions.
These are followed by chapters on Trigonometry, Coordinate Geometry of Circles and Straight Lines, Linear Equations, Permutations and Combinations, Polynomials, Elementary Combinatorics, Inequalities, Beginnings of Number Theory and the Probability Theory, Finite Series, and De Moivre’s Theorem and the Applications of the Theorem.
