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.

MyMathLab provides a wide range of homework, tutorial, and assessment tools that make it easy to manage your course online.

Meet the Author

Charles Miller has taught at America River College for many years.

Vern Heeren received his bachelor's degree from Occidental College and his master's degree from the University of California, Davis, both in mathematics. He is a retired professor of mathematics from American River College where he was active in all aspects of mathematics education and curriculum development for thirty-eight years. Teaming with Charles D. Miller in 1969 to write Mathematical Ideas, the pair later collaborated on Mathematics: An Everyday Experience; John Hornsby joined as co-author of Mathematical Ideas on the later six editions. Vern enjoys the support of his wife, three sons, three daughters in-law, and eight grandchildren.

John Hornsby: When a young John Hornsby enrolled in Lousiana State University, he was uncertain whether he wanted to study mathematics education or journalism. Ultimately, he decided to become a teacher. After twenty five years in high school and university classrooms, each of his goals has been realized. His passion for teaching and mathematics manifests itself in his dedicated work with students and teachers, while his penchant for writing has, for twenty five years, been exercised in the writing of mathematics textbooks. Devotion to his family (wife Gwen and sons Chris, Jack, and Josh), numismatics (the study of coins) and record collecting keep him busy when he is not involved in teaching or writing. He is also an avid fan of baseball and music of the 1960's. Instructors, students, and the 'general public' are raving about his recent Math Goes to Hollywood presentations across the country.

    I wish I had my book. I am still waiting for a response, a reply a book something from someone to let me know what is going on.

    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"

    If this book is purchased with all its accompanying material it is sure to prepare students for employment in the data analyst field.
