PREFACE
This book is designed in accordance with the new guidelines andsyllabi – 2003 of the Higher Secondary Mathematics – First Year,Government of Tamilnadu. In the era of knowledge explosion, writing atext book on Mathematics is challenging and promising. Mathematicsbeing one of the most important subjects which not only decides thecareer of many young students but also enhances their ability ofanalytical and rational thinking and forms a base for Science andTechnology.This book would be of considerable value to the students whowould need some additional practice in the concepts taught in the classand the students who aspire for some extra challenge as well.Each chapter opens with an introduction, various definitions,theorems and results. These in turn are followed by solved examplesand exercises which have been classified in various types for quick andeffective revision. The most important feature of this book is theinclusion of a new chapter namely
‘Functions and Graphs’
. In thischapter many of the abstract concepts have been clearly explainedthrough concrete examples and diagrams.It is hoped that this book will be an acceptable companion to theteacher and the taught. This book contains
more than 500 examplesand 1000 exercise problems.
It is quite difficult to expect the teacher todo everything. The students are advised to learn by themselves theremaining problems left by the teacher. Since the
‘Plus 1’
level isconsidered as the foundation course for higher mathematics, thestudents must give more attention to each and every result mentioned inthis book.
 
 
The chief features of this book are 
(i) The subject matter has been presented in a simple and lucidmanner so that the students themselves are able tounderstand the solutions to the solved examples.(ii) Special efforts have been made to give the proof of somestandard theorems.(iii) The working rules have been given so that the studentsthemselves try the solution to the problems given in theexercise.(iv) Sketches of the curves have been drawn wherevernecessary, facilitating the learner for better understanding ofconcepts.(v) The problems have been carefully selected and well graded.The list of reference books provided at the end of this book will beof much helpful for further enrichment of various concepts introduced.We welcome suggestions and constructive criticisms from learnedteachers and dear students as there is always hope for furtherimprovement.
