Mathematics : modeling our world ( Book )
11 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 114 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
College algebra in simplest terms ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 93 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
For all practical purposes ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sol Garfunkel takes the viewer on an exploration of statistics and their related display and interpretative disciplines. Methods of gathering useable reliable data, such as randomization, and sampling are discussed. Methods of graphical displaying data from histograms to three dimensional computer arrays are shown. Statistics are shown to be useful when patterns of events are more important than individual events themselves. Finally the methods for stating the reliability of the results are explored
