This package contains Lial, Finite Mathematics with Applications 11e and access to MyMathLab. Important information for students: You need both an access code and a course ID to access MyMathLab. Ask your lecturer before purchasing a MyLab product as you will need a course ID from them before you can gain access to the system. For freshman/sophomore, 1 semester or 1-2 quarter courses covering college algebra and/or finite mathematics for students in management, natural, and social sciences. Finite Mathematics with Applications in the Management, Natural, and Social Sciences presents sound mathematics in an understandable manner, proceeding from the familiar to new material and from concrete examples to general rules and formulas. The Eleventh Edition retains its focus on real-world problem solving, but has been refreshed with revised and added content, updated and new applications, fine-tuned and newly-integrated pedagogical devices, and enhanced exercise sets. The new edition supports students with a tightly integrated MyMathLab(R) course and quality applications and exercises. Teaching and Learning Experience This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience. Here's how: *Strong foundation of algebra: The authors devote the first four chapters to algebra topics that form the foundation for the finite mathematics topics that follow. *Built for student success: proven pedagogy, robust exercise sets, and comprehensive end-of-chapter material help students succeed in the course. *Motivation: Students constantly see the math applied to their major areas of study. *Personalized help with MyMathLab(R): MyMathLab delivers proven results by personalizing the learning process. This package includes MyMathLab(R), an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts. MyMathLab should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Please be sure you have the correct ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
