### Summary

In a Liberal Arts Math course, a common question students ask is, "Why do I have to know this?" A Survey of Mathematics with Applicationscontinues to be a best-seller because it shows students howwe use mathematics in our daily lives and why this is important. The Ninth Edition further emphasizes this with the addition of new " Why This Is Important" sections throughout the text. Real-life and up-to-date examples motivate the topics throughout, and a wide range of exercises help students to develop their problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Angel, Abbott, and Runde present the material in a way that is clear and accessible to non-math majors. The text includes a wide variety of math topics, with contents that are flexible for use in any one- or two-semester Liberal Arts Math course.
