An entry-level college math course at the college algebra level for non-calculus bound students. This textbook presents an introduction to mathematical modeling based on the use of elementary functions to describe and explore real-world data and phenomena. Built on interesting applications of elementary mathematics, students are taught how to construct useful mathematical models, to analyze them critically, and to communicate quantitative concepts effectively. The author's approach makes maximum use of graphing calculator technology to engage students in the concrete modeling of mathematical applications.
