Overview
Thinking Mathematically helps you see the world around us as both mathematical and meaningful. In his distinctive, relatable voice, wellknown author and educator Bob Blitzer demonstrates how truly relevant and fun math can be using current data compiled from hundreds of books, magazines and online sources. Compelling applications drawn from real life range from the value of online classes to modeling coronavirus cases to highestpaid celebrities. Understanding that most students in this course are not math majors, Blitzer focuses on student preparedness by incorporating learning aids and ample practice to support students entering the course at any level. The 7th Edition revises graphing calculator screens, updates and adds new applications throughout, and much more.
