New. Through down-to-earth explanations, patient skill-building, and exceptionally interesting and realistic applications, this worktext will empower students to learn and master mathematics in the real world. Bello has written a textbook with mathanxious students in mind to combat the issue of student motivation, something that instructors face with each class. The addition of Green Math examples and applications expands Bello`s reach into current, timely subjects. Salient Features " This edition features new Green Math Examples and Green Math Applications, which provide students with the ability to apply mathematics to topics present in all aspects of their lives. " The result is a reinvented learning experience rich in information, visually engaging, and easily accessible to both instructors and students. " End-of-section exercise sets to include exercises keyed to objectives and to examples, applied exercises, and "skill checkers" to confirm/reinforce skills needed for the next section. Contents: 1.
