Genre: Mathematics

Mathematics with Applications for the Management, Life, and Social Sciences, Second Edition presents the fundamentals of finite mathematics in a style tailored for beginners, but at the same time covers the subject matter in sufficient depth so that the student can see a rich variety of realistic and relevant applications in management, life sciences, and social sciences. Some applications of probability, game theory, and Markov chains are given. Comprised of 16 chapters, this book begins with an introduction to set theory, followed by a discussion on Cartesian coordinate systems and graphs. Subsequent chapters focus on linear programming from a geometric point of view; matrices, the solution of linear systems, and applications; the simplex method for solving linear programming problems; and permutations, combinations, and counting methods. Probability for finite sample spaces and basic concepts in statistics are also considered, along with the mathematics of finance and applications of calculus. This monograph is intended for students and instructors of applied mathematics.

For freshman/sophomore, 2-semester or 2-3 quarter courses in Finite Math & Applied Calculus or Mathematics for Business. A strong foundation and logical progression through finite math and calculus The unique organization of Mathematics with Applications in the Management, Natural, and Social Sciences gives students four chapters of college algebra, rather than the usual two, before moving into finite math and calculus. From there, the authors build upon familiar foundations and then move to new concepts; students are shown concrete examples before learning general rules and formulas. With an ongoing focus on real-world problem solving, almost every section in the 12th Edition includes relevant, contemporary applications and fine-tuned pedagogical devices. A prior course in basic algebra is assumed.
