A Beginner's Guide to Finite Mathematics: For Business, Management, and the Social Sciences (Hardback)W. D. Wallis (author)
- We can order this
This second edition of A Beginner's Guide to Finite Mathematics takes a distinctly applied approach to finite mathematics at the freshman and sophomore level. Topics are presented sequentially: the book opens with a brief review of sets and numbers, followed by an introduction to data sets, histograms, means and medians. Counting techniques and the Binomial Theorem are covered, which provides the foundation for elementary probability theory; this, in turn, leads to basic statistics. This new edition includes chapters on game theory and financial mathematics. Requiring little mathematical background beyond high school algebra, the text will be especially useful for business and liberal arts majors.

From the reviews of the second edition:
"This second edition of Wallis' concisely written textbook on finite mathematics can be a valuable resource for freshmen and sophomores. An economy of language lends elegance and clarity to this text, which is unusual among comparable texts that I work with. ... helpful for parents or students seeking a resource to supplement a required textbook during the first couple of years of pre-calculus college algebra." (Tom Schulte, MAA Reviews, March, 2013)
