 This title prepares students to become informed consumers of quantitative information with coverage that balances discussions of ideas with computational practice. Through a wide range of examples and applications, the authors show students that they use maths in their everyday lives more than they realise, so students can learn maths in real-world contexts. Students develop the critical thinking and problem solving skills to make intelligent decisions regarding money, voting, politics, health issues, and much more.
