College algebra : in simplest terms( Visual )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents the role of algebra in daily life and demonstrates practical applications in the workplace. Uses symbols, charts, pictures, and state-of-the-art computer graphics to illustrate basic algebraic techniques. Reviews problems step-by step, focusing on the methods students find most difficult to grasp
Mathematics : modeling our world( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors of this text demonstrate using mathematical concepts to solve truly interesting problems about how our world works. Mathematical modeling is the process of looking at a problem, finding a mathematical core, working within that core, and coming back to see what mathematics tells you about the problem. Real problems ask such questions as: How do we create computer animations? Where should we locate a fire station? How do we effectively control an animal population? This approach integrates a mix of ideas in geometry, algebra, and data analysis with technologies of computers and graphing calculators
Algebra : in simplest terms( Visual )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Solving equations is a basic operation of all higher math. This set shows algebra's usefulness to retailers, biologists, and even anyone who drives a car. Host Sol Garfunkel walks viewers through realistic problems, highlighting the common trouble spots

Mathematics : modeling our world : Pre-Calculus( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors of this text demonstrate using mathematical concepts to solve truly interesting problems about how our world works. Mathematical modeling is the process of looking at a problem, finding a mathematical core, working within that core, and coming back to see what mathematics tells you about the problem. Real problems ask such questions as: How do we create computer animations? Where should we locate a fire station? How do we effectively control an animal population? This approach integrates a mix of ideas in geometry, algebra, and data analysis with technologies of computers and graphing calculators
For all practical purposes( Visual )

5 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deals with how mathematics can be used to make social choices ranging from a fair voting system, determining award winners, and setting economic and governmental planning priorities. Uses computer graphics, animation sequences, and live action. Intended for entry-level liberal arts students
Mathematics : modeling our world( Book )

in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors demonstrate mathematical modeling and using mathematical concepts to solve truly interesting problems about how our world works. Mathematical modeling is the process of looking at a problem, finding a mathematical core, working within that core, and coming back to see what mathematics tells you about the problem. Real problems ask such questions as: How do we create computer animations? Where should we locate a fire station? How do we effectively control an animal population? This approach integrates a mix of ideas in geometry, algebra, and data analysis with technologies of computers and graphing calculators. Course 4 (Pre-calculus) is intended as a bridge between MMOW and collegiate mathematics. It introduces students to a number of new concepts (i.e. matrices and vectors) and teaches them new skills that will help prepare them for entry-level undergraduate mathemematics courses, including calculus and discrete mathematics
Systems of linear inequalities ; Arithmetic sequences and series( Visual )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 21 sets up a problem, finds a solution, develops linear inequalities, graphs these solutions, and forms a region of feasible solutions. Program 22 explores basic properties and formulas, emphasizing sums of arithmetic series and developing concepts
Functions ; Composition and inverse functions( Visual )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 13 defines a function, develops an equation from real situations, and discusses domain and range. Program 14 uses graphics to introduce composites and inverses of functions as applied to cost and production level
The prisoner's dilemma( Visual )

5 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The games of "chicken" and "prisoner's dilemma" illustrate issues in corporate takeovers and labor relations
