Description

This concisely written text in finite mathematics gives a sequential, distinctly applied presentation of topics, employing a pedagogical approach that is ideal for freshmen and sophomores in business, the social sciences, and the liberal arts. The work opens with a brief review of sets and numbers, followed by an introduction to data sets, counting arguments, and the Binomial Theorem, which sets the foundation for elementary probability theory and some basic statistics. Further chapters treat graph theory as it relates to modelling, matrices and vectors, and linear programming. Requiring only two years of high school algebra, this book's many examples and illuminating problem sets - with selected solutions - will appeal to a wide audience of students and teachers.
