Summary
The first title in a new series, Fundamental Mathematics through Applications is a shorter version (the first 6 chapters) of Basic Mathematics through Applications. Intended either for a brief course on fundamental concepts or for a quick review before a Prealgebra or Introductory Algebra course, Fundamental Mathematics through Applications truly focuses on content relevant to students. Throughout the text, motivating realworld applications, examples, and exercises demonstrate how integral mathematical understanding is to student mastery in other disciplines, a variety of occupations, and everyday situations. A distinctive sidebyside format pairing an example with a corresponding practice exercise encourages students to get actively involved in the mathematical content from the start. Unique Mindstretchers target different levels and types of student understanding in one comprehensive problem set per section incorporating related investigation, critical thinking, reasoning, and pattern recognition exercises along with corresponding group work and historical connections. Compelling Historical Notes give students further evidence that mathematics grew out of a universal need to find efficient solutions to everyday problems. Plenty of practice exercises provide ample opportunity for students to thoroughly master basic mathematics skills and develop confidence in their understanding.
