WHY MATHEMATICS BEYOND THE NUMBERS By Gilbert and Hatcher?
  • Students actively do mathematics!

    In order to truly appreciate and understand mathematics and its importance, students need to actively do mathematics. For this reason, the emphasis in Gilbert and Hatcher is on teaching mathematical problem-solving skills through carefully constructed examples and a wide and varied selection of exercises.

  • Students find mathematics truly relevant!

    The extensive use of real data and numerous real-world applications reinforce how vital a role mathematics plays in many areas of our lives. The topics included are either applied so students will appreciate their practicality or simply display the beauty and fun of mathematics.

  • Gilbert and Hatcher is totally flexible in organization and use of technology!

    Chapters are independent and so can be arranged to fit any syllabus. Although every topic presented in the text can be taught with students using only scientific calculators, the opportunities are also wide-ranging for a more technology-based course. Technology Tip boxes guide students and instructors to the possibilities for using technology. Information on Web-based tools, simulations, Web-testing and tutorials provided free to adopters can be found at the Web site for this text: http://www.wiley.com/college/gilbert
