This book offers a "six-step approach" to problem solving, numerous tips, and clear, concise explanations that explore the concepts behind mathematical processes. Simplified language appeals to a variety of learning styles, and promotes active, independent, and lifelong learning -- while strengthening critical thinking and writing skills. This book addresses curriculum and pedagogy standards that are initiatives of the American Mathematical Association of two-year Colleges (AMATYC), the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), and the Mathematics Association of America (MAA). It focuses on number, symbol, spatial and geometric, function, and probability and statistical sense. Other features include career applications, and mathematics in the workplace articles that demonstrate the relationship of chapter concepts to highly sought after job skills -- such as computational, research, and critical thinking/decision-making.
