Excerpts

About This Book Basic College MathematicsSecond Edition was written to provide asolid foundationin the basics of college mathematics, including the topics of whole numbers, fractions, decimals, ratio, and proportion, percent, and measurement as well as introductions to geometry, statistics and probability, and algebra topics. Specific care was taken to ensure that students have the mostup-to-date relevanttext preparation for their next mathematics course or for nonmathematical courses that require an understanding of algebraic fundamentals. I have tried to achieve this by writing a user-friendly text that is keyed to objectives and contains many worked-out examples. As suggested by the AMATYC Crossroads Document and the NCTM Standards (plus Addenda), real-life and real-data applications, data interpretation, conceptual understanding, problem solving, writing, cooperative learning, appropriate use of technology, mental mathematics, number sense, critical thinking, and geometric concepts are emphasized and integrated throughout the book. The many factors that contributed to the success of the first edition have been retained. In preparing the Second Edition, I considered comments and suggestions of colleagues, students, and many users of the prior edition throughout the country. Basic College Mathematics,Second Edition is part of a series of texts that can includeIntroductory Algebra,Second Edition;Prealgebra,Third Edition;Intermediate Algebra,Second Edition; and a combined textAlgebra A Combined Approach,Second Edition. Throughout the series pedagogical features are designed to develop student proficiency in algebra and problem solving, and to prepare students for future courses.
