For a traditional course in Finite Mathematics for non-science majors in business, social science, and life science programs.
A “tried and true” favorite of both students and instructors alike, this text offers extremely readable coverage of the principles of finite mathematics and their applications in business, social science, and the life sciences. Topics are presented in a straight-forward, interesting manner, with considerable attention given to the applications of the mathematics—the intent is for the students' mathematical maturity and appreciation for the usefulness of mathematics to grow simultaneously. Flexible in coverage, the text includes more material than can be covered in most one-semester courses, and divides naturally into four parts: linear mathematics; probability and statistics; topics utilizing the ideas of the first two parts; and key topics from discrete mathematics that are sometimes included in the modern finite mathematics curriculum. Instructors can easily structure their courses to their students' needs and interests. Since many of the topics can be enhanced with such tools as graphing calculators, electronic spreadsheets, and mathematical software, the text explicitly shows students how to use such technologies effectively to assist in understanding the fundamental concept of the course. Appendices cover the fundamentals of the various technologies and many sections contain specially designed technology exercises.
