Full of relevant, diverse, and current real-world applications that students can relate to, Waner and Costenoble's FINITE MATHEMATICS, Seventh Edition, helps your students see the relevance of mathematics in their lives. A large number of the applications are based on real, referenced data from business, economics, and the life and social sciences. Thorough, clearly delineated spreadsheet and TI Graphing Calculator instruction appears throughout the text, supplemented by an acclaimed author website that provides interactive tutorials, powerful utilities, conceptualization tools, review, and practice. The end-of-chapter Technology Notes and Technology Guides are optional, allowing you to include in your courses precisely the amount of technology instruction you choose. Acclaimed for accuracy and readability, FINITE MATHEMATICS appeals to, and is appropriate for, all types of teaching and learning styles. The optional accompanying WebAssign course, and the author website at wanermath.com provide complete support for a wide range of course formats -- from traditional lectures and hybrid courses to strictly online courses. Resources include the new lecture videos available in WebAssign. At the wanermath.com author website, the authors have developed online “game mode” tutorials, interactive chapter summaries, and a semester-long mathematics game.
