Summary: For courses in Mathematics for Business, Finite Mathematics, and Applied Calculus.
This text, modern in its writing style as well as in its applications, contains numerous exercises--both skill oriented and applications--, real data problems, and a problem solving method. Its exercises are based on data from the World Wide Web, and allow students to see for themselves how mathematics is used in everyday life.
Problem solving method--Occurs in worked out examples throughout the entire text in the steps entitled Understand the Situation and Interpret the Solution.
Provides students with the necessary preliminary thought processes needed when attacking a problem.
Real data modeling--Features problems based on data culled from the WWW.
Impresses upon students that mathematics can be used to solve a multitude of rich real world problems. Serves instructorswith an abundance of examples and exercises enabling students to see where they could use this mathematics in the real world.
Technology options--Follows worked examples for students and instructors who wish to use graphing calculator technology.
Shows students how the graphing calculator may be used to solve the example just presented.
Flashbacks--Revisits an example from a prior section and extends the content to introduce new topics.
Allows students to concentrate on a new topic using familiar applications. Enables instructorsto use students' prior knowledge and extend it naturally to new material.
From Your Toolbox boxes--Reviews a previously introduced key definition, theorem, or property required in the development of a new topic.
Allows students to stay on a task with the material being presented without having to flip back several pages.
Notes feature follows definitions, theorems, and properties.
Provides students with additional insight by clarifying the just presented mathematical idea verbally.
Checkpoints --Reinforce the topics, skill, or concept at hand.
Helps students take ownership of their learning and the course material, and gives them confidence in their ability to do so.
Gives students further mathematical insight by extending complete examples, solving worked examples using another method, discovering patterns, and exploring additional properties of recently introduced topics. Supplies instructorswith material for critical thinking exercises, classroom discussion, or collaborative learning.
Chapter openers--Includes photos, graphs, What We Know, and Where Do We Gosections.
Guides students through the text by highlighting what the have already learned and what they are about to cover.
Chapter-end narratives--Features Why We Learned It sections, extensive review exercises, and a chapter project.
Outlines the major chapter topics and how they are used in various careers, and offers students the chance to test their understanding of the material they have learned--and their understanding of it.
