This text includes a history of math and covers logic, computing, finance, and geometry. The numerous exercise and problem sets, including writing exercises, provide non-majors with a thorough foundation of mathematics. Optional Road Maps, included in the preface, provide different ways to organize chapter topics in a coherent fashion, and ideas and goals for various approaches to teaching the course. (This information is expanded upon in the Instructor's Manual.)
