9780077356651: Math in Our World

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.

About the Author:

Dave Sobecki was born and raised in Cleveland, and started college at Bowling Green State University in 1984 majoring in creative writing. Eleven years later, he walked across the graduation stage to receive a PhD in math, a strange journey indeed. After two years at Franklin and Marshall College in Pennsylvania, he came home to Ohio, accepting a tenure-track job at the Hamilton campus of Miami University. Dave has won a number of teaching awards in his career, and more recently has turned his attention to writing textbooks. Dave is in a happy place where his love of teaching meshes perfectly with his childhood dream of writing. He lives in Fairfield, Ohio with his lovely wife Cat, and fuzzy dogs Macleod and Tessa. When not teaching or writing, Dave's passions include Ohio State football, Cleveland Indians baseball, heavy metal music, travel, golf, and home improvement.
