The author team of Dave Sobecki, Angela Matthews, and Allan Bluman have worked together to create the second edition of Mathematics in Our World, an engaging text catered to the needs of today’s liberal arts mathematics students. This revision focuses strict attention to a clear and friendly writing style, integration of numerous relevant real-world examples and applications, and implementation of the step-by-step approach used for years in Bluman’s Elementary Statistics: A Step by Step Approach. The result is an exceptionally engaging text that is able to both effectively and creatively convey the basic concepts fundamental to a liberal arts math curriculum for even the most hesitant student.
