Summary

When introducing mathematical ideas, this book moves from the concrete to the abstract, rather than the reverse. It is the authors philosophy that learning is increased when students can relate a concept to something in their lives. This approach increases both interest and motivation. Students see the importance of a topic from a practical and intuitive point of view, with models and applications playing a central part in the learning process.
