Using and Understanding Mathematics: A Quantitative Reasoning Approach prepares students for the mathematics they will encounter in college courses, their future career, and life in general. Its quantitative reasoning approach helps students to build the skills needed to understand major issues in everyday life, and compels students to acquire the problemsolving tools that they will need to think critically about quantitative issues in contemporary society. This program will provide a better teaching and learning experiencefor you and your students. Here's how: *Improved results with MyMathLab(R), which is designed to work handinhand with the book and offers additional practice and learning aids that improve student learning in measurable ways. *The realworld focus turns students' attention to the math they will need for college, career, and life. * A wide range of exercises and problem types end each unit, making it easy for instructors to create assignments to fit their course goals. *Study and review features in every chapter are designed to help students use their time effectively.
