New (old) books now available

At long last, Avery Catlin's Let's Program It and the DiscoveryPak are now available to purchase via this site. Check them out on the new Books page.

Both include detailed how-to's and lots of code (in the books and on accompanying CDs).

Happy coding!

Book suggestions

Thanks for the suggestions of other books to add! I do not have either of those in stock, but I can check with the printers and see what they might have in their archives, and whether they could do a new printing.

I remember we had a few copies of "Numerical Methods" when we took over in 2006, but they did sell out.

More to come soon...

Thanks,

Anne

How about republishing DOS TB ver 3 and 4 manuals. I have DOS TB ver 2.1 (User, Reference, and Supplement Manuals) and they a great help in programming TB in Windows. I understand from Big John and Tom M that ver 3 and ver 4 are also very good.

Re: New (old) books ...

admin ... Nice to learn these books are available again. I hope TB Inc. will soon resurrect a copyrighted book that TB Inc. owns, namely:

"An Introduction to Numerical Methods using True BASIC" by Owen T Hanna and William F Hanna"

This 232-page book is by far the best book for mathematics teachers and students that feature numerical computing methods. I bought it in 1999, shortly after it was released. It has 11 chapters and 3 appendices, and numerous Examples in each chapter, as follows:

PREFACE

1. Programming in True BASIC

2. Linear Algebraic Equations

3. Taylor Expansions

4. Interpolation

5. Least Squares

6. Numerical Differentiation

7. Nonlinear Algebraic Equations

8. Optimization

9. Evaluation of Integrals

10. Differentiation

11. Data Analysis and Statistics

A. TB Calculator

B. Richardson Extrapolation

C. Reference Books

Index

This book's True BASIC printed program listings are easy to interpret, and demonstrate the best program 'style' I've seen.

My only complaint with this book is that it is 'soft cover', and doesn't lay flat when reading, and the binding is 'fragile' - my book is beginning to fall apart from frequent use. My suggestion is that a re-release of this book should be ‘spiral-wire ring bound’ so it lies flat when being read. That’s the lowest-cost method of book binding, and the most robust. If my copy does completely fall apart, I’ll have it spiral-ring-bound at a local bindery.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is mathematically inclined, and is a fan of True BASIC. Regards … Tom M
