About the Author

I was born and raised in Cleveland, and started college at Bowling Green State University in 1984 majoring in creative writing. Eleven years later, I walked across the graduation stage to receive a PhD in math, a strange journey indeed. After two years at Franklin and Marshall College in Pennsylvania, I came home to Ohio, accepting a tenure-track job at the Hamilton campus of Miami University. I’ve won a number of teaching awards in my career, and while maintaining an active teaching schedule, I now spend an inordinate amount of time writing textbooks and course materials. I’ve written or co-authored either seven or twelve textbooks, depending on how you count them, as well as several solutions manuals and interactive CD-ROMS. After many years as developmental math coordinator at Miami Hamilton, I share the frustration that goes along with low pass rates in the developmental math curriculum. Far too many students end up on the classic Jetson’s-style treadmill, with the abstract nature of the traditional algebra curriculum keeping them from reaching their goals. Like so many instructors across the country, I believe the time is right to move beyond the one-size-fits-all curriculum that treats students the same whether they hope to be an engineer or a pastry chef. “Because we’ve always done it that way” is NOT a good reason to maintain the status quo in our curriculum. Let’s work together to devise alternate pathways that help students to learn more and learn better while hastening their trip into credit-bearing math courses. Since my book (Math in Our World) is written for the Liberal Arts Math and Quantitative Literacy market, I think I’m in the right place at the right time to make a difference in the new and exciting pathways course. I’m in a very happy place right now: my love of teaching meshes perfectly with my childhood dream of writing. (Don’t tell my publisher this – they think I spend 20 hours a day working on textbooks – but I’m working on my first novel in the limited spare time that I have.) I’m also a former coordinator of Ohio Project NExT, as I believe very strongly in helping young college instructors focus on high-quality teaching as a primary career goal. I live in Fairfield, Ohio with my lovely wife Cat and fuzzy dogs Macleod and Tessa. When not teaching or writing, my passions include Ohio State football, Cleveland Indians baseball, heavy metal music, travel, golf, and home improvement.

5.0 out of 5 stars My own private tutor February 17, 2013
By Nik
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is helping me a lot. It has only the odd answers, but it goes step-by-step to help me figure out how to do certain problems. I don't use it to cheat, but to use as a helping hand to understand. My precal teacher isn't really that great when it comes to teaching this since he's REALLY old-fashioned, so this book comes in very handy. I recommend getting this from a private seller or someone who is selling this for cheap. This book is expensive, but I got it in almost like-new condition from someone from amazon for 25 dollars, and that INCLUDES expidited shipping.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the solutions manual! November 16, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This supposed solutions manual only has the answers to the odd problems. Don't waste your money- the odd answers are already in the back of the textbook

When I ordered the book used. I didn't expected it to come in such a good shape. It looks like new. I had no problems and the book arrived on time.
