This text written for a one-semester finite mathematics course, provides a truly applied presentation of the mathematics. Applications are woven into the very fabric of the text and used to motivate all topics: nearly every section of the text opens by posing a real-world problem which is solved later in the chapter after the mathematical skills are developed. Furthermore, the author emphasizes developing the ability to translate applied problems into mathematical formulas. Self-help exercises, optional graphing calculator exercises, and historical comments add to the presentation.
