  • Authors: Michael R. Ziegler (2014)

  • The thirteenth edition of College Mathematics for Business, Economics, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences is designed for a two-term (or condensed one-term) course in finite mathematics and calculus for students who have had one to two years of high school algebra or the equivalent. The book’s overall approach, refined by the authors’ experience with large sections of college freshmen, addresses the challenges of teaching and learning when prerequisite knowledge varies greatly from student to student. The authors had three main goals when writing this text: ▶ To write a text that students can easily comprehend ▶ To make connections between what students are learning and how they may apply that knowledge ▶ To give flexibility to instructors to tailor a course to the needs of t...

  • People in business, economics and the social sciences are increasingly aware of the need to be able to handle a range of mathematical tools. This course is designed to fill this need by extending the 100 courses in Mathematics and Statistics into several even more practical and powerful areas of mathematics. It is not just forecasting and index numbers that have uses. Such things as differential equations and stochastic processes, for example, do have direct, frequent and practical applications to everyday management situations. This course is intended to extend your mathematical ability and interests beyond the knowledge acquired in earlier 100 courses. Throughout the mathematical and quantitative courses of the degrees we attempt to emphasise the applications of mathematics for m...

  • The title of the book sounds a bit mysterious. Why should anyone read this book if it presents the subject in a wrong way? What is particularly done “wrong” in the book? Before answering these questions, let me first describe the target audience of this text. This book appeared as lecture notes for the course “Honors Linear Algebra”. It supposed to be a first linear algebra course for mathematically advanced students. It is intended for a student who, while not yet very familiar with abstract reasoning, is willing to study more rigorous mathematics than what is presented in a “cookbook style” calculus type course. Besides being a first course in linear algebra it is also supposed to be a first course introducing a student to rigorous proof, formal definitions in short, to the style...
