cs. Real data, graphs, and tables play an important role in the course, giving meaning to the numbers and equations that students encounter. This approach increases student interest, motivation, and the likelihood for success. Many students think in visual, concrete terms and not abstractly. This text helps students learn mathematics better by moving from the concrete to the abstract. It makes use of multiple representations (verbal, graphical, numerical, and symbolic), applications, visualization, and technology.
