A concrete approach to abstract algebra by W. W Sawyer( Book )

34 editions published between 1958 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brief, clear, and well written, this introduction to abstract algebra bridges the gap between the solid ground of traditional algebra and the abstract territory of modern algebra. The only prerequisite is high school–level algebra. Author W. W. Sawyer begins with a very basic viewpoint of abstract algebra, using simple arithmetic and elementary algebra. He then proceeds to arithmetic and polynomials, slowly progressing to more complex matters: finite arithmetic, an analogy between integers and polynomials, an application of the analogy, extending fields, and linear dependence and vector spaces. Additional topics include algebraic calculations with vectors, vectors over a field, and fields regarded as vector spaces. The final chapter proves that angles cannot be trisected by Euclidean means, using a proof that shows how modern algebraic concepts can be used to solve an ancient problem. Exercises appear throughout the book, with complete solutions at the end

Vision in elementary mathematics by W. W Sawyer( Book )

7 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the title suggests, this technique employs visual elements in its exploration of the most graphic and least "forbidding" aspects of mathematics. The author observes that most people possess a direct vision that permits them to "see" only the smaller numbers. In addressing this difficulty, both for those who like recreational mathematics and for those who teach, he suggests a variety of methods: techniques of visualizing, dramatizing, and analyzing numbers that attract and retain the attention and understanding. Topics range from basic multiplication and division to algebra, encompassing word problems, graphs, negative numbers, fractions, and many other practical applications of elementary mathematics. 1964 ed.
