Featuring a de-emphasis of mathematical detail and an emphasis on techniques, this volume focuses on the applications of basic mathematics, algebra, finite mathematics, and differential and integral calculus in the fields of business and economics, and the social and life sciences.


uses an intuitive approach — all mathematical theorems, proofs, concepts and ideas are first described intuitively and conversationally; then worked out mathematically.
features an abundance of step-by-step worked out examples and procedures (with solutions in full detail).
integrates a great number and variety of carefully chosen applications throughout.
offers a diversity of exercises (5000 total) including true/false and applied word problems (with answers to odd-numbered exercises).
uses boxes to emphasize major formulas and results, and features marginal “think boxes” related directly to adjacent discussions.
