This edition continues to provide an informal, non-intimidating presentation of the mathematical principles, techniques, and applications most useful for students in business, economics, management,-and the life and social sciences. Designed pri-marily for a two-term course in applied mathematics (the book can be adapted easily for a one-term course) it provides a comprehensive treatment of selected topics in finite mathematics and calculus.
An increased orientation toward using the COMPUTER AS A TOOL for mathematical analysis.
ALGEBRA FLASHBACKS are used throughout the book to assist the student in the recall of key rules or concepts. The flashback usually con-sists of a restatement of a rule or concept with a reference to appropriate sections of algebra review in the text.
NOTES TO THE STUDENT which provide special insights about a mathematical concept or application.
POINTS FOR THOUGHT AND DISCUSSION" which allow students to pause for a moment and reconsider a choicest or example from a differ-ent perspective. Their purpose is to reinforce and extend the student's understanding inducing critical thinking. TABLE OF CONTENTS
