## Patterns in Mathematics: Problem Solving from Counting to ChaosThis unique text is fully based on the NCTM standards. Its many innovative features include the use of an exploratory, problem-solving approach throughout the work (in text discussions, examples, and problems), a theme and narrative that unfold from beginning to end (the search for patterns), a framework that relates math topics to each other, an entertaining writing style, and multicultural coverage. It offers a wide range of traditional and off-beat math topics to choose from and a comprehensive set of pedagogical features and illustrations. The text has been class tested for several years at Central Oregon Community College. |
