Summary: This proven 12th Edition text, presents an arithmetic-based, basic approach to business math. It emphasizes a practical, skill-building approach to prepare students for future careers in business through step-by-step development of concepts, numerous practice exercises throughout, and a focus on real-world application of techniques. The text advances from most basic to more complex business math topics.
  • Internet-based chapter openers highlight nationally-recognized companies Web sites. These scenarios discuss some aspect about the company related either to the chapter topic or a career opportunity, demonstrating the real-world applicability of the chapter's subject and highlight the use of computers in today's business environment.
  • The text's own Web site provides direct links to chapter-opening Web pages, teaching/learning resources, and more.
  • Concept Checks following each major chapter section provide students with the opportunity to immediately assess their understanding and ability to apply the material they've just learned.
  • "Bottom Line" end-of-chapter features tie each learning objective to self-test problems (with answers). Students have the opportunity to check whether they have mastered the chapter's key skills before moving on to the assignments.
  • Learning Objective icons call out the locations throughout the chapter where each Learning Objective is addressed, helping students to focus on key topics from the very beginning and throughout each chapter for better assimilation.
  • A revised organization exposes students to business applications earlier and more logically groups together appropriate business applications chapters.
  • New Chapter 31 (Business Math in Computer Operations) and Chapter 32 (Mathematics in Employment Tests) have been added, further emphasizing the practical nature of the text as an aid for future career preparation.
  • Separate insurance Chapters 18 and 19 in previous edition now combined into a single chapter (Chapter 20, Business and Personal Insurance).
  • A highly successful step-by-step problem-solving approach presents short, concise text sections followed by examples with step-by-step solutions. Students learn mathematical concepts by immediately applying practical solutions to common business problems, and gain confidence in their own problem-solving skills by studying the way example problems are worked out.
  • Abundant practical business problems and high-interest business examples with many real companies help students relate to the material better as they see how it is applied to everyday life.
  • Exceptional coverage of how to solve word problems (Chapter 2), metrics (Chapter 3), and business statistics (Chapter 29). Algebra appears in 2 different chapters (Chapter 2 - a brief exposure to algebra; Chapter 30 - a heavier concentration on algebra) so that instructors can choose the way they wish to teach their course
