9780132319133: Excursions in Modern Mathematics with Mini-Excursions

For undergraduate courses in Liberal Arts Mathematics, Quantitative Literacy, and General Education.

 

NEW:  Now with “Mini-Excursions” Included! 

 

These are enrichment topics that have been added at the end of each part and require an understanding of the core material covered in one or more of the chapters. Shorter than a full chapter but much more substantive than an appendix. Each mini-excursion includes its own exercise set.

 

This very successful liberal arts mathematics textbook is a collection of “excursions” into the real-world applications of modern mathematics. The excursions are organized into four independent parts: 1) The Mathematics of Social Choice, 2) Management Science, 3) Growth and Symmetry, and 4) Statistics. Each part consists of four chapters plus a mini-excursion (new feature in 6/e). The book is written in an informal, very readable style, with pedagogical features that make the material both interesting and clear. The presentation is centered on an assortment of real-world examples and applications specifically chosen to illustrate the usefulness, relevance, and beauty of liberal arts mathematics.
