Take a closer look at the front cover to see how mathematics affects our everyday experience.
You may have participated in a survey, for example, but do you know how we use mathematics to interpret and present the results? (Chapter 2)
Do you know a quick way to estimate the size of a large crowd from a photograph? (Chapter 1)
Look at the architecture in the background. The buildings all around us are based on familiar geometric figures such as triangles, squares, and rectangles. (Chapter 10)
In some areas, crowds like this are commonplace. However, in order locales, wide-open spaces are the norm. We can describe these differences using the mathematical concept of population density. (Chapter 9)
Thinking Mathematically invites you to navigate life and its challenges with greater ease and enthusiasm.
