This book is ideal for one- or two-semester or two- or three-quarter courses covering topics in college algebra, finite mathematics, and calculus for students in business, economics, and the life and social sciences.
Introductory Mathematical Analysis for Business, Economics, and the Life and Social Sciences provides a mathematical foundation for students in a variety of fields and majors. The authors establish an emphasis on algebraic calculations that sets this text apart from other introductory, applied mathematics books. Because the process of calculating variables builds skills in mathematical modeling, this emphasis paves the way for students to solve real-world problems that use calculus. The book’s comprehensive structure―covering college algebra in Chapters 0 through 4, finite mathematics in Chapters 5 through 9, and calculus in Chapters 10 through 17―offersinstructors flexibility in how they use the material based on the course they’re teaching, the semester they’re at, or what the students’ background allows and their needs dictate.
