About this product
- Description<i>I finally understand why I need to learn some math</i>! says a student after finishing a course that used <i>Quantitative Literacy</i>. That enthusiastic response gets to the heart of how this remarkable textbook works. <i>Quantitative Literacy</i> shows students that they use math in their everyday lives more than they realize, and that learning math in real-world contexts t only makes it easier to get better grades, but prepares them for decisions they'll face about money, voting and politics, health issues, and much more. The authors draw on a wide range of examples to give students basic mathematical tools-- from sports to personal finance to sociopolitical action to medical tests to the arts--with coverage that neatly balances discussions of ideas with computational practice. The thoroughly new edition offers new pedagogy and more examples of math in everyday life. It is also w a fully integrated text/media package with it's own dedicated version of LaunchPad, W. H. Freeman's breakthrough online course space. What's in the LaunchPad</p><strong>Maximize Teaching and Learning with WebAssign Premium</strong>Macmillan Learning and WebAssign have partnered to deliver WebAssign Premium - a comprehensive and flexible suite of resources for your quantitative literacy course.
