Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0130116904, Hardcover)

This contemporary approach to liberal arts math breaks away from traditional instruction and moves towards a more “modern” course that stresses rich ideas, little review, and more visualization. This readerfriendly book offers an accessible writing style and mathematical integrity. Its unique three-part organization (Life, Society, the World) presents readers with sound, relevant mathematics, leaving them with the (correct) impression that math is useful and affects their lives in many positive ways. Mathematical Structures and Methods. Descriptive Statistics. Collecting and Interpreting Data. Inferential Statistics. Probability. Consumer Mathematics. Management Mathematics. Critical Thinking, Logical Reasoning, and Problem Solving. Geometry. Growth and Scaling. For anyone who needs to learn or review basic math concepts and practical applications.
