Product Details
Beyond the Quadratic Formula
Ron Irving
The quadratic formula for the solution of quadratic equations was discovered independently by scholars in many ancient cultures and is familiar to everyone. Less well known are formulas for solutions of cubic and quartic equations whose discovery was the high point of 16th century mathematics. Their study forms the heart of this book, as part of the broader theme that a polynomial's coefficients can be used to obtain detailed information on its roots. The book is designed for selfstudy, with many results presented as exercises and some supplemented by outlines for solution. The intended audience includes inservice and prospective secondary mathematics teachers, high school students eager to go beyond the standard curriculum, undergraduates who desire an indepth look at a topic they may have unwittingly skipped over, and the mathematically curious who wish to do some work to unlock the mysteries of this beautiful subject.
