MATHEMATICAL APPLICATIONS FOR THE MANAGEMENT, LIFE, AND SOCIAL SCIENCES, 12th Edition, engages students with its concept-based approach, multiple presentation methods and relevant applications throughout. Intended for two-semester applied calculus or combined finite mathematics and applied calculus courses, the book places concepts in real-life context to help students strengthen their understanding. A focus on modeling--with modeling problems clearly labeled in the examples and problems, so they can be treated as optional--and flexible content organization accommodate different teaching approaches, enabling instructors to decide the order in which topics may be presented and the degree to which they may be emphasized.

MATHEMATICAL APPLICATIONS FOR THE MANAGEMENT, LIFE, AND SOCIAL SCIENCES, 11th Edition, is intended for a two-semester applied calculus or combined finite mathematics and applied calculus course. The book’s concept-based approach, multiple presentation methods, and interesting and relevant applications keep students who typically take the course-business, economics, life sciences, and social sciences majors-engaged in the material. This edition retains the book’s real-life context by adding to and updating the substantial number of applications. It also continues the focus on modeling, with modeling problems now clearly labeled in the examples. A brief review of algebra prepares students with different backgrounds for the material in later chapters.

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.
