## Finite Mathematics for Business, Economics, Life Sciences, and Social SciencesThis mid-level text covers mathematics of finance, linear algebra, linear programming, probability, and descriptive statistics, with an emphasis on cross - discipline principles and practices. Designed to be student friendly and accessible, it develops a thorough, functional understanding of mathematical concepts in preparation for their application in other areas. Coverage concentrates on developing concepts and ideas followed immediately by developing computational skills and problem solving.*Includes over 3300 carefully selected and graded problems, divided into A, B, and C levels of difficulty in each problem set, to develop students' mechanical skills and increase the depth of their understanding*Draws topic selection, coverage, and organization from the course outlines and catalogs of many major colleges and universities |
