Description

This approach responds to the late-1990s reform movement in mathematics and the need for effective solutions in the workplace. The many practical applications of math concepts are illustrated throughout each chapter. Through active participation in chapter projects, activities, labs and the use of the graphing calculator, the student learns how to intuitively and methodically develop an effective solution. Graphing calculators are introduced as tools to solve problems, explore quantitative relationships, and extend the students' understanding of math concepts. The classroom presentation of this material features a CD-ROM that provides simulations, data analysis techniques, graphical solutions and videos to further enhance delivery of this approach to college mathematics.show more
