This work focuses particularly on content relevant to students. Throughout the text, motivating real-world applications, examples, and exercises demonstrate how integral mathematical understanding is to student mastery in other disciplines, a variety of occupations, and everyday situations. A side-by-side format pairing an example with a corresponding practice exercise encourages students to get actively involved in the mathematical content from the start. Mindstretchers target different levels and types of student understanding in one comprehensive problem set per section incorporating related investigation, critical thinking, reasoning, and pattern recognition exercises along with corresponding group work and historical connections. Historical notes give students further evidence that mathematics grew out of a universal need to find efficient solutions to everyday problems, while practice exercises provide ample opportunity for students to thoroughly master basic mathematics skills and develop confidence in their understanding.
