Mathematics in Our World is designed for mathematics survey courses for non-science majors. The text covers a variety of topics designed to foster interest in and show the applicability of mathematics. The book is written by our successful statistics author, Allan Bluman. His easy-going writing style and step-by-step approach make this text very readable and accessible to lower-level students. The text contains many pedagogical features designed to both aid the student and instill a sense that mathematics is not just adding and subtracting.
