**Modeling authentic data through curve-fitting gives students new meaning to the math**

Seeking the answer to students’ perennial question “But what is this good for?” the ** Lehmann Algebra Series ** uses authentic, real-life data sets to find models and derive equations that fit the scenario. The curve-fitting approach teaches the mathematical concepts within the context of data, getting students engaged from the start and building conceptual understanding.

Updates in this revision keep the data sets authentic and current, and provide even more resources for students to practice, review, and explore the concepts.
