Mathematical Ideas captures the interest of nonmajors who take the Liberal Arts Math course by showing how mathematics plays an important role in scenes from popular movies and television. By incorporating John Hornsby’s “Math Goes to Hollywood” approach into chapter openers, margin notes, examples, exercises, and resources, this text makes it easy to weave this engaging theme into your course. The Twelfth Edition continues to deliver the superlative writing style, carefully developed examples, and extensive exercise sets that instructors have come to expect. MyMathLab continues to evolve with each new edition, offering expanded online exercise sets, improved instructor resources, and new sectionlevel videos.
MyMathLab provides a wide range of homework, tutorial, and assessment tools that make it easy to manage your course online. Synopsis:0321799593 / 9780321799593 Mathematical Ideas with Student Solutions Manual and MathXL

Vern Heeren received his bachelor's degree from Occidental College and his master's degree from the University of California, Davis, both in mathematics. He is a retired professor of mathematics from American River College where he was active in all aspects of mathematics education and curriculum development for thirtyeight years. Teaming with Charles D. Miller in 1969 to write Mathematical Ideas, the pair later collaborated on Mathematics: An Everyday Experience; John Hornsby joined as coauthor of Mathematical Ideas on the later six editions. Vern enjoys the support of his wife, three sons, three daughters inlaw, and eight grandchildren. John Hornsby: When a young John Hornsby enrolled in Lousiana State University, he was uncertain whether he wanted to study mathematics education or journalism. Ultimately, he decided to become a teacher. After twenty five years in high school and university classrooms, each of his goals has been realized. His passion for teaching and mathematics manifests itself in his dedicated work with students and teachers, while his penchant for writing has, for twenty five years, been exercised in the writing of mathematics textbooks. Devotion to his family (wife Gwen and sons Chris, Jack, and Josh), numismatics (the study of coins) and record collecting keep him busy when he is not involved in teaching or writing. He is also an avid fan of baseball and music of the 1960's. Instructors, students, and the 'general public' are raving about his recent Math Goes to Hollywood presentations across the country.
