This clear, accessible treatment of mathematics features a building-block approach toward problem solving, realistic and diverse applications, and chapter organizer to help users focus their study and become effective and confident problem solvers. The "Putting Your Skills to Work" and new chapter-end feature, "Math in the Media," present readers with opportunities to utilize critical thinking skills, analyze and interpret data, and problem solve using applied situations encountered in daily life. Chapter 7, Geometry, has been extensively revised and re-organized to include a new section 7.1 on angles and new section 7.4 devoted to triangles. Increased coverage of estimating with fractions and decimals with new " To Think About" exercises in Sections 2.5, 2.8, and 3.3 and a new lesson in Section 3.7. Coverage of fractions in Chapter 2 has been expanded as follows: " Section 2.6 now begins with a discussion of least common multiples so that the subsequent coverage of least common denominators is more complete; a new lesson on order of operations in Section 2.8 offers readers additional review of these rules and practice applying them to fractions; and a new mid-chapter test on fractions appears after Section 2.5. Percent applications are now covered in two sections (Sections 5.4 and 5.5) to allow for a more patient presentation of this important topic.

The book was in good condition, as stated by the seller. I looked through it and it seems to be just what I need to help me brush up on the "basics" before I go ahead with an advanced Math class later this year. Thank you!

61 and taking a Career Readiness class that includes basic math. This book helped me to score in the highest level. Easy to understand, even for a silver hair who embraced her Texas Instruments Calculator decades ago and never let go!
