Mathematics : modeling our world(
Book
)
17 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 95 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

Inference for relationships ; Case study(
Visual
)
16 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Inference for relationships discusses simple linear regression, emphasizing slope and prediction. The Case study illustrates the major aspects of statistical thinking, including planning data collection, analysis by graphs and informal inference, and additional data collection in response to partial success. Uses animated graphics, onlocation footage, and interviews
