Viewing Life Mathematically: A Pathway to Quantitative Literacy Plus Integrated Review, 2nd Edition

by Kimberly Denley

Viewing Life Mathematically: A Pathway to Quantitative Literacy, second edition, by Kimberly Denley provides students with practical, relevant, real-world mathematical experiences designed to build quantitative literacy while exploring how mathematics is used in our modern, global society. The curriculum is flexible and can be used in a variety of general education contexts to design courses that help students develop fluency through problem solving while building conceptual understanding of real-world mathematics.

In addition, this title includes integrated review lessons designed for a co-requisite course offering using a just-in-time approach. Targeted support for curriculum-level learners has been woven into this course offering valuable intervention for prerequisite concepts to help the college student repair gaps and misconceptions.

Significant enhancements of the second edition include new section-level projects and updated chapter-level projects that give students the opportunity to put their mathematical understandings to work in real and relevant contexts. These targeted and cumulative projects along with a substantial expansion in exercise sets make this title the perfect choice for project-based courses. Additional chapters now cover the essentials of algebra to ensure that students have a strong mathematical foundation. The wide range of content coverage allows for faculty curation of topics molding the title to fit the needs of any applied mathematics course.
