Mathematics : modeling our world(
Book
)
16 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 87 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

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

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

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 longterm 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

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 (Precalculus) 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 entrylevel undergraduate mathemematics courses, including calculus and discrete mathematics
