College algebra : in simplest terms( Visual )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 100 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 )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 88 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 78 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
For all practical purposes. On size and shape( Visual )

7 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 18 discusses population growth and the importance of knowing it's rate of growth. Examples of growth rate are given from the banking industry (compound interest) and fishing industry (fish population). Program 19 explains conic sections, giving their history in terms of discovery and applications. Shows how various forms of a circle can be derived by a cone and a plane
For all practical purposes( Visual )

8 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 72 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 date, 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
For all practical purposes( Visual )

in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series which stresses the connections between contemporary mathematics and modern society. Presents a great variety of problems that can be modeled and solved by quantitative means
Precalculus : modeling our world( Book )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

College algebra : modeling our world by Nancy Crisler( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For all practical purposes. Statistics :( Visual )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 8 focuses on exploratory data analysis, emphasizing that the human eye and brain are the best known devices to see and recognize patterns. Introduces histograms, medians, quartiles, scatterplots and boxplots. Program 9 analyzes how we can predict long-term patterns of chance events by looking at the operation of a gambling casino. Introduces elementary probability concepts along with an analysis of normal curves, standard deviation and expected value
For all practical purposes. Management science :( Visual )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 1 demonstrates the scope of applicability of management science concepts to algorithms. Program 2 explains the use of graphs in solving routing problems
Algebra : in simplest terms( Visual )

2 editions published between 1991 and 2000 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an instructional series of 26 half-hour programs for high school, college, and adult learners, or for teachers seeking to review the subject matter. Host Sol Garfunkel explains concepts that may baffle many students, while graphic illustrations and on-location examples demonstrate how algebra is used for solving real-world problems. Algebra is important in today's world, used in such diverse fields as agriculture, sports, genetics, social science, and medicine. This series helps students connect algebra's mathematical themes and applications to daily life
For all practical purposes. Computer science( Visual )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 11 is an overview of how we can use mathematics in various decision making processes by turning values into numbers. Fair division is also discussed. Program 12 explains different voting methods and the part mathematics plays in characterizing and comparing them
For all practical purposes. Social choice :( Visual )

5 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 15 discusses the human problem of making decisions, such as in business and politics. Partial conflict results in these situations and cooperation for mutual benefit is shown to be the best solution for these games of partial conflict
Mathematical models with applications( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 27 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?

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
