The first title in a new series, Basic Mathematics through Applications truly focuses on content relevant to students. Throughout the text, motivating real-world 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 side-by-side 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.

Covering the basic mathematics taught to first year students of science and engineering, this textbook reflects the growing awareness that ancillary mathematics should not be taught in isolation from its applications. Topics covered include calculus, ordinary and partial differential equations, and statistics. Each chapter starts with two or three examples setting the new techniques to be studied in the context of the scientific world; the mathematics is then presented, along with worked examples. Numerical methods are integrated with analytical techniques where appropriate.

Offering a uniquely modern, balanced approach, Tussy/Gustafson/Koenig's BASIC COLLEGE MATHEMATICS WITH EARLY INTEGERS, Fifth Edition, integrates the best of traditional drill and practice with the best elements of the reform movement. To many developmental math students, mathematics is like a foreign language. They have difficulty translating the words, their meanings, and how they apply to problem solving. Emphasizing the “language of mathematics,” the text's fully integrated learning process is designed to expand students' reasoning abilities and teach them how to read, write, and think mathematically. It blends instructional approaches that include vocabulary, practice, and well-defined pedagogy with an emphasis on reasoning, modeling, communication, and technology skills.

The FUNDAMENTALS OF MATHEMATICS, Tenth Edition, offers a comprehensive and objectives-based review of all basic mathematics concepts. The authors prepare students for further coursework by addressing three important student needs: 1) establishing good study habits and overcoming math anxiety, 2) making the connections between mathematics and their modern, day-to-day activities, and 3) being paced and challenged according to their individual level of understanding whether right out of high school or returning to school later in life. The clear exposition and the consistency of presentation make learning arithmetic accessible for all. Key concepts presented in section objectives and further defined within the context of How and Why provide a strong foundation for learning and lasting comprehension. With a predominant emphasis on problem-solving skills, concepts, and applications based on real world data (with some introductory algebra integrated throughout), this book is suitable for individual study or for a variety of course formats: lab, self-paced, lecture, group, or combined formats.
