Mathematical Ideas captures the interest of non-majors who take the Liberal Arts Math course by showing how mathematics plays an important role in scenes from popular movies and television. By incorporating John Hornsby’s “Math Goes to Hollywood” approach into chapter openers, margin notes, examples, exercises, and resources, this text makes it easy to weave this engaging theme into your course.
The Twelfth Edition continues to deliver the superlative writing style, carefully developed examples, and extensive exercise sets that instructors have come to expect. MyMathLab continues to evolve with each new edition, offering expanded online exercise sets, improved instructor resources, and new section-level videos.

ordered book May 19,order# 134009217,from frtextbooks. still have not received the book sent email on 5/28 to frtextbooks, still havent received a reply. Reported it to b&n on 3 seperate occassions and still no reply or book. Extreme unprofessional service the book is ok, looked at a classmates, too bad I cant look at the one I paid for almost a month ago. I was told the book would be considered late on June 14. Per the invoice it was shipped on May 19. Guidelines state it should be shipped within 2 business days, well we are certainly past that. I have spoken with great reps at b&n, but that does not provide me with a book. Can someone email me and let me know WHERE IS MY BOOK? My class ends on July 26, so I guess I will get it on July 27 with a fake apology/lie it was lost in the mail. I deplore unprofessional business & service and that is what I am receiving. Barnes and Nobles this seller dropped the ball and by their ratings I am the 3rd customer to experience this. Please do something about sellers that disregard customers without dignifying them with a basic response "we mailed it on_______ date"Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
