Golf by the Numbers: How Stats, Math, and Physics Affect Your Game
How do the world's greatest golfers improve their game? Practice, sure, but Roland Minton says mathematics and statistics are also key to their success. Golf by the Numbers analyzes the mathematical strategies behind the sport, giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at how numbers drive the game. Computers, GPS trackers, swing simulators, and high-speed cameras have introduced new and exciting ways of seeing and understanding the complicated and endlessly fascinating game of golf. Players like Phil Mickelson are so good because they review the results of every swing they take. Minton's comprehensive analysis of statistics taken from the PGA Tour's ShotLink system walks readers through the mountains of data that pros use to inform and refine their play. The result is an insider's perspective of how the world's greatest golfers apply mathematics to the sport. Minton discusses randomness in golf (especially how much luck is involved in putting) as well as aggressive and cautious strategies both on and off the greens, and he explains, by the numbers, just how Tiger Woods was so dominant from 2004 to 2009. Here is a book that tells some truly engaging stories of modern golf, featuring famous players and memorable tournaments, all through the lens of elementary probability theory. Minton's informal style and clear and direct explanations make even the most detailed discussions accessible to all curious-minded golfers. His mathematical morsels are not only enjoyable to read-they may even help you improve your game.

Sports Math: An Introductory Course in the Mathematics of Sports Science and Sports Analytics
Can you really keep your eye on the ball? How is massive data collection changing sports? Sports science courses are growing in popularity. The author's course at Roanoke College is a mix of physics, physiology, mathematics, and statistics. Many students of both genders find it exciting to think about sports. Sports problems are easy to create and state, even for students who do not live sports 24/7. Sports are part of their culture and knowledge base, and the opportunity to be an expert on some area of sports is invigorating. This should be the primary reason for the growth of mathematics of sports courses: the topic provides intrinsic motivation for students to do their best work. From the Author: The topics covered in Sports Science and Sports Analytics courses vary widely. To use a golfing analogy, writing a book like this is like hitting a drive at a driving range; there are many directions you can go without going out of bounds. At the driving range, I pick out a small target to focus on, and that is what I have done here. I have chosen a sample of topics I find very interesting. Ideally, users of this book will have enough to choose from to suit whichever version of a sports course is being run. The book is very appealing to teach from as well as to learn from. Students seem to have a growing interest in ways to apply traditionally different areas to solve problems. This, coupled with an enthusiasm for sports, makes Dr. Minton's book appealing to me. -Kevin Hutson, Furman University

The wide-ranging debate brought about by the calculus reform movement has had a significant impact on textbooks. In response to many of the questions and concerns surrounding this debate, the authors have written a modern calculus textbook for students majoring in mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering and related fields. The text is aimed at the average student who does not already know the subject, whose background is somewhat weak in some areas, and who needs a significant motivation to study calculus. A relatively standard order of presentation is used, integrating technology and thought-provoking exercises throughout. Some minor changes have been made in the order of topics to reflect shifts in the importance of certain applications in engineering and science. This text also gives an early introduction to logarithms, exponentials and the trigonometric functions. Wherever practical, concepts are developed from graphical, numerical and algebraic persepectives (the Rule of Three ) to give students a full understanding of calculus. This text places a significant emphasis on problem solving and presents realistic applications, as well as open-ended problems. An expanded section uses linear approximation to provide an introduction to l'Hopital's Rule. NetTutor is a revolutionary new web-based learning environment for the live dissemination of mathematical content. It offers live, personalized tutoring via the Internet. Using NetTutor's powerful WWWhiteboard software, students can post a question and receive prompt feedback from an expert in the subject. The table of contents features an early introduction to the calculus logarithms, exponentials and the trigonometric functions.
