Overview

Designed primarily for the Liberal Arts or Survey of Mathematics course, this straightforward, non-technical introduction to mathematics shows students how to think like mathematicians. The text focuses on the "four faces of mathematics"–solving problems, finding order, building models, and abstracting from the familiar–that form the four parts of the text.
