Designed for students preparing for a career in business, economics, psychology, sociology, architecture, environmental sciences, biology, or other areas of the life sciences and who have completed a high school algebra course. Each new concept the student learns is applied to a wide variety of practical and real-life applications. Many applications utilize real data and include referenced footnotes. Techniques and strategies students need to solve applied problems are stressed. The applications are drawn from the social, managerial, and life sciences, with special emphasis on business and economics. The text is compactly reorganized into nine chapters and includes the additional topic of asymptotes.
