Finally, a text that shows you why Math Matters! Math Matters is more than just a book of mathematics. Its about money, logic, decision makingand much more! In this brief, streamlined text, James Rauff covers all of the traditional liberal arts math topics without intimidating distractions. Math Matters shows readers the relevance of math in their daily lives, as they develop fundamental math skills. "Whats the Point?" chapter openers explain how and why each math principle can be used in common situations. Interactive exercises allow readers to work independently as they choose a plan of action and participate in problem solving. Math Matters is a walking tour through the world that displays math skills in 36 practical situations: Take a "Drive in England" as you master the metric system. Don your thinking cap for "Counting Hats in Ixtapa", while you explore mathematics of other cultures and times. "Following IRS Instructions" teaches logic using a 1040 tax form!Math Matters provides an inexpensive alternative to lengthy math texts whose focus is theory, not practice. Maybe you wont win the Lottery, but Math Matters will tell you why!
