By teaching with an emphasis on real world applications, Applied Basic Mathematics, Second Edition, offers students a refreshing perspective on basic math! Authors Clark and Brechner open every chapter with an application and close every section with “Apply Your Knowledge” examples. The authors pair this emphasis on applications with learning tools like “Guide Problems and the “Ten Minute Chapter,” resulting in a text that encourages students to relate, reinforce, and review as they learn.

MyMathLab provides a wide range of homework, tutorial, and assessment tools that make it easy to manage your course online.
