Mathematics : modeling our world( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 99 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

Statistics by Geoffrey R Norman( Visual )

10 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 67 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
Precalculus : modeling our world( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 51 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
