Book Description
This book is a survey of contemporary mathematical topics, most nonalgebraic, appropriate for a collegelevel quantitative literacy topics course for liberal arts majors. The text is designed so that most chapters are independent, allowing the instructor to choose a selection of topics to be covered.
Emphasis is placed on the applicability of the mathematics. Core material for each topic is covered in the main text, with additional depth available through exploration exercises appropriate for inclass, group, or individual investigation.
