Description: The mathematicians and educators who comprise COMAP created for All Practical Purposes in response to the following question: If there were a course designed to help impart mathematical literacy to today's students what should it include? Like previous revisions, the new edition of FAPP carefully re-examines this question to better reflect our changing world. In keeping with the FAP tradition, the text continues to focus on mathematics relevant to consumers, business, history, and social sciences, incorporating a number of content and pedagogical changes, and adding new interactive features on the Web. The result is the ideal liberal arts mathematics text for students who think that mathematics is irrelevant and dull, and for instructors who want their class time to focus on active participation and a real-world approach to problem-solving.
