Mathematical Excursions - With CD - 04 edition

Mathematical Excursions - With CD (ISBN10: 0618386394; ISBN13: 9780618386390)
ISBN13: 978-0618386390
ISBN10: 0618386394

Summary: A new text for the liberal arts math course by a seasoned author team, Mathematical Excursions, is uniquely designed to help students see math at work in the contemporary world. Using the proven Aufmann Interactive Method, students learn to master problem-solving in meaningful contexts. In addition, multi-part Excursion exercises emphasize collaborative learning. The text's extensive topical coverage offers instructors flexibility in designing a course that meets the
ir students' needs and curriculum requirements.
  • The Excursions activity and corresponding Excursion Exercises, denoted by an icon, conclude each section, providing opportunities for in-class cooperative work, hands-on learning, and development of critical-thinking skills. These activities are also ideal for projects or extra credit assignments. The Excursions are designed to reinforce the material that has just been covered in the section in a fun and engaging manner that will enhance a student's journey and discovery of mathematics.
  • The proven Aufmann Interactive Method ensures that students try concepts and manipulate real-life data as they progress through the material. Every objective contains at least one set of matched-pair examples. The method begins with a worked-out example with a solution in numerical and verbal formats to address different learning styles. The matched problem, called Check Your Progress, is left for the student to try. Each problem includes a reference to a fully worked out solution in an appendix to which the student can refer for immediate feedback, concept reinforcement, identification of problem areas, and prevention of frustration.
  • Each Chapter Opener begins with a short introduction to a real data application, which is then highlighted again in one Excursions activity and in the corresponding Excursion Exercises at the end of a section. This specific Excursion will be denoted by an icon. A section-by-section table of contents is accompanied by a brief summary of the topics that will be covered in the chapter.
