He wrote articles that explored topics in math education and the applications of mathematics to economics.
- NEW! Full-color design improves clarity and assists student understanding with consistant pedagogical use of color.
- More applications using real data enhances student motivation. Many of these applications include source lines, to show how mathematics is used in the real world.
- NEW! Conceptual problems ask students to put the concepts and results into their own words. These problems are marked with an icon to make them easier to assign.
- Preparing for this Section features guide the student on which concepts to review before starting each new section.
- Each section begins with a set of objectives, which are highlighted and maintained throughout the section. At the end of each chapter, these objectives are reviewed, with specific Review Exercises to test the student's command of the material.
- Each chapter ends with a Chapter Project that can be used in class, assigned for homework, or employed for group work.
- NEW! Use of Excel Spreadsheets are now integrated throughout.
Optional use of technology:
More opportunities for the use of graphing calculator, including screen shots and instructions.
Icons clearly identify each opportunity for the use of spreadsheets or graphing calculator.
Now Work problems appear throughout the text, giving the student the chance to immediately reinforce the concept or skill they have just learned.
Chapter Reviews contain a variety of features to help synthesize the ideas of the chapter:
