Editorial Reviews

Sullivan (Chicago State U.) presents the sixth edition of this college textbook designed for students with little mathematical background and possibly a fear of mathematics, as well as for highly- motivated students who will go on to further their mathematical education. A major change in the sixth edition is that each chapter demonstrates the relevance of mathematics to everyday life by connecting principles from the chapter to a real-life business<- ->Motorola—including a brief description of a situation at the company, interviews at the company, a biographical sketch of an employee, and an employee-designed problem at Motorola and accompanying student exercises. The content and organization of the text have also undergone a number of revisions and additions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
