Summary: Mathematics in Our World is designed for mathematics survey courses for non-science majors. The text covers a variety of topics designed to foster interest in and show the applicability of mathematics. The book is written by our successful statistics author, Allan Bluman.

  • CALCULATOR EXPLORATIONS: located throughout the text, they highlight topics and show how calculators may be used as tools to solve problems while reinforcing the presented material.
