Applied Mathematical Modeling and Problem Solving
This text provides a one-semester alternative to the traditional two-semester developmental algebra sequence for non-STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) students. This new approach offers an accelerated pathway to college readiness through developmental math, preparing non-STEM students to move directly into liberal arts math or introductory statistics, while also preparing STEM students for intermediate algebra.Active Learning for Active StudentsApplied Mathematical Modeling and Problem Solving allows students to discover mathematical concepts through activities and applications that build their mathematical literacy and critical thinking skills. Different from most math books, this text teaches through activities encouraging students to learn by constructing, reflecting on, and applying the mathematical concepts. The activities illustrate the mathematical topics as they arise in real-life contexts, increasing student engagement and problem-solving skills to accelerate them into a non-STEM credit-bearing math course.
