For all practical purposes( Visual )

12 editions published between 1986 and 1997 in English and held by 119 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
Mathematics : modeling our world( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 90 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 )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 82 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
Precalculus : modeling our world( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

College algebra : modeling our world( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For all practical purposes( Visual )

5 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 30 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
Logarithmic functions ; System of equations( Visual )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Program 19 understanding the logarithmic relationship, the use of logarithmic properties, and the handling of a scientific calculator are addressed. How radiocarbon dating and the Richter scale depend on the properties of logarithms is explained. In Program 20 the elimination method and substitution method are used to solve problems with systems of studying linear and nonlinear equations. Their applications to supply or demand, and cost and revenue are demonstrated
Mathematical models with applications( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rational functions ; Exponential functions( Visual )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Program 17 the properties of rational functions are developed by investigating several graphs, to determine the intercepts, symmetry and asymptotes. Applications demonstrate double time for simple interest, average cost function and tax rates. Program 18 covers graphing and developing the equation for an exponential function. Applications include bacteria growth, population growth, and radioactive decay
Quadratic equations ; Inequalities( Visual )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 7 stresses the quadratic formula--how it is used to complete a square, and how it is expressed as the difference of two squares or the sum of two squares. Program 8 develops the basic properties and examines how to solve inequalities using polynomial and rational expressions
Circle and parabola ; Ellipse and hyperbola( Visual )

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

Program 11 using conic sections, takes a detailed look at circles and parabolas. Terminology and formulas for equations are discussed. Program 12 discusses the equations for ellipses and hyperbolas, and demonstrates graphically how to develop the equation from each definition
Systems of linear inequalities ; Arithmetic sequences and series( Visual )

2 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
For all practical purposes( Visual )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
