Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This clear, accessible treatment of basic college mathematics features an enhanced problem-solving strand highlighted by A Mathematics Blueprint for Problem Solving that helps students determine where to begin the problem-solving process, as well as how to plan subsequent problem-solving steps. Also includes Step-by-Step Procedure, realistic Applications, and Cooperative Learning Activities in Putting Your Skills to Work. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

This clear, accessible treatment of mathematics features a building-block approach toward problem solving, realistic and diverse applications, and chapter organizer to help users focus their study and become effective and confident problem solvers. The Putting Your Skills to Work and new chapter-end feature, Math in the Media, present readers with opportunities to utilize critical thinking skills, analyze and interpret data, and problem solve using applied situations encountered in daily life. Chapter 7, Geometry, has been extensively revised and re-organized to include a new section 7.1 on angles and new section 7.4 devoted to triangles. Increased coverage of estimating with fractions and decimals with new “To Think About” exercises in Sections 2.5, 2.8, and 3.3 and a new lesson in Section 3.7. Coverage of fractions in Chapter 2 has been expanded as follows: Section 2.6 now begins with a discussion of least common multiples so that the subsequent coverage of least common denominators is more complete; a new lesson on order of operations in Section 2.8 offers readers additional review of these rules and practice applying them to fractions; and a new mid-chapter test on fractions appears after Section 2.5. Percent applications are now covered in two sections (Sections 5.4 and 5.5) to allow for a more patient presentation of this important topic.

Format: Paperback
The text 'Basic College Mathematics' is used at the college where I tutor in mathematics as the foundational course for mathematics in all programmes. While many students test out of this level into algebraic topics, for those students whose mathematics is decades old, or was never perfect in the beginning, this book offers a fairly clear and systematic approach to mathematics topics.
The chapters cover the broad topics in this order: Whole Numbers, including the basic arithmetical functions (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division), was well as basics of exponents and rounding; Fractions, including the basic arithmetical functions as well as beginning to deal with mixed numbers and order of operations; Decimals, including the basic arithmetical functions as well as continuing with order of operations and decimal/fraction conversions; Ratio and proportion ideas; Percentages theoretical and applied; Basic Measurements and conversions of units between British/American units and metric standards; Geometry at the most basic level of shapes and arithmetical formulas dealing with those shapes for area, perimeter, etc.; Statistics at a very elementary level, such as reading charts and graphs, histograms, and the three concepts of mean, median and mode; Signed and special numbers, including the negative numbers, as well as scientific notation; and finally a brief introduction to Algebra, which introduces the basic concepts of variables, like terms, and equations.
Each of the chapters deals with things in a mathematical as well as an 'English' way - explaining in words the concepts and operations being carried out in the numbers. Each section of each chapter covers only a few key concepts, with enough problems for solving that reinforce the principles thoroughly.

Format: Paperback
This book offers great examples which clearly illustrate how to work out a problem from the beginning to the end. I was very impressed with this book and wished that I had this book when I was in high school. I found it to be a wonderful book with good examples. I was especially impressed with the chapter organizer at the end of each chapter. I routinely would copy these to and use these to study before a test. I have maintained an A average in that class the entire time. For anyone having trouble with basic math.... get this book! You will be glad you did.

Basic Mathematics is an informative textbook teaching the basics of mathematics. It has good examples and easy to understand explantations of fomulas. I would recommend this text as a refresher before jumping into a more complex subject.

The text itself was helpful; however, both my original purchase and it's replacement both had defective DVD's to accompany the text. I was very disappointed in this.
