You might want to have a look at the following (peruse them at your favorite online book store).
Precalculus Mathematics in a Nutshell: Geometry, Algebra, Trigonometry, George F. Simmons
Pre-calculus Demystified 2/E, Rhonda Huettenmueller
Some other food for thought.
You may also want to look at actual calculus books at your local university library and see some of the topics you might need.
You might want to get and learn to use a Computer Algebra System. You want to learn to explore mathematics and ask all sort of what-if questions and also learn about programming.

i've recently started studying up on design concept, with the ultimate reason of doing some authentic studies in that region. I understand the arithmetic pretty properly, but am now not understanding the application. Can a person here give an explanation for that? instead are there a few articles, web-websites, papers explaining the software of layout concept in agriculture, biological experiments and so forth.
for example after establishing the lifestyles of/constructing a certain sort of design mathematically, how can we use that expertise in exercise?

Reminder : Given a set S of n elements (we will use [n] in the following for simplicity), a Latin square L is a function L : [ n ] × [ n ] S, i.e., an n × n array with elements in S, such that each element of S appears exactly once in each row and each column. For example,
Latin square
1, 2, 3
3, 1, 2
3, 1, 2
Let L 1 and L 2 be two Latin squares over the ground sets S 2 respectively. They are called orthogonal if for every ( x 1 , x 2 ) S 1 × S 2 there exists a unique ( i , j ) [ n ] × [ n ] such that L 2 ( i , j ) = x 2 . For example, the following are two orthogonal Latin squares of order 3.
1, 2, 3 2, 3, 1
3, 1, 2 3, 1, 2
1, 2, 1 1, 2, 3
It is known that there at most n−1 mutually orthogonal Latin squares of order n, and that the bound is achieved if and only there exist an affine plane of order n.
Graph : I'm building a graph G n with vertex set the latin squares of order n and two vertices are adjacent iff the Latin squares are orthogonal.
I want to understand some properties of this graph. For simplicity I consider the squares up to permutation of [n], hence w.l.o.g. all my squares have for first line { 1 , 2 , , n }. Indeed if I call H n the graph not up to permutations, then H n is the n! graph blowup of G n , or using the Tensor product
H n = G n × K n !
As I'm mainly interested in the chromatic number of my graph, and we know that χ ( H n ) min { χ ( G n ) ; n ! }, I will study only G n
For instance G 3 = K 2
I know that :
It's trivial that G n is not complete.
If there exist an affine plane of order n then G n contains K n 1 as a subgraph, and χ ( G n ) n 1
I wonder the following :
What is the maximum degree of G n ? We know that we have at most n−1 mutually orthogonal latin squares, but to how many squares can one square be orthogonal (still up to permutation)?
Do we have any other info on the chromatic number, not coming from the property χ ( G n ) Δ + 1
Can G n contains an induce k-cycle with k>3 (i.e. chordless cycle)?
Can it be conjectured that
Conjecture : for any n, G n is the disjoint union of complete subgraphs (of different sizes).
Edit After some simple Brute force and some additional reading, I can tell that
G 4 is made of 2 disjoint K 3 and 18 isolated vertices, for a total of 24 Latin squares up to permutations.
G 5 is made of 36 disjoint K 4 and 1200 isolated vertices, for a total of 1344 Latin squares up to permutation.
The case n=6 would be the first interesting case, as there are no affine plance of order 6, hence we will find no K 5 in G 6 . It is known since 1901 (from Tarry hand checking all Latin squares of order 6) that no two were mutually orthogonal. So G 6 is made of only isolated vertices.
It is also know that the case n=2 and n=6 are the only one with only isolated vertices. (see design theory by Beth, Jingnickel and Lenz)
From the article "Monogamous Latin Square by Danziger, Wanless and Webb, available on Wanless website here. The authors show that for all n>6, if n is not of the form 2p for a prime p 11, then there exists a latin square of order n that possesses an orthogonal mate but is not in any triple of Mutually Orthogonal Latin Squares. Therefore our graph G n will have some isolated K 2
