Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This accessible text is organized into two parts: (1) A Library of Elementary Functions (Chapters 1–2) and (2) Finite Mathematics (Chapters 3–11). The book’s overall approach addresses the challenges of teaching and learning when readers’ prerequisite knowledge varies greatly. Reader-friendly features such as Matched Problems, Explore & Discuss questions, and Conceptual Insights, together with the motivating and ample applications, make this text a popular choice for today’s readers.

A Library of Elementary Functions: Linear Equations and Graphs; Functions and Graphs. Finite Mathematics: Mathematics of Finance; Systems of Linear Equations; Matrices; Linear Inequalities and Linear Programming; Linear Programming: Simplex Method; Logic, Sets, and Counting; Probability; Markov Chains; Games and Decisions; Description and Probability Distributions.

For all readers interested in finite mathematics for business, economics, life sciences, and social sciences.
