Mathematics All Around, Fourth Edition, is the textbook for today's liberal arts mathematics students. Tom Pirnot presents math in a way that is accessible, interesting, and relevant. Like having a teacher on call, its clear, conversational writing style is enjoyable to read and focuses on helping students understand the math, not just get the correct answers on the test. Useful features throughout the book enable students to become comfortable with thinking about numbers and interpreting the numerical world around them.
