##### Product Information
Introductory Mathematics

Introductory Mathematics is a traditional, one-semester, basic mathematics textbook. We have split the chapter on fractions into two chapters. We have applications spread throughout the book.

## Features

### Getting Ready for the Next Section

These problems appear at the end of every problem set. They are the exact problems that students will see when they read through the next section of the text. Students who consistently work these problems will be much better prepared for class than students who don't work these problems.

Just before each problem set is a list of four questions under the heading Getting Ready for Class. These problems require written responses from students and are to be done before students come to class. The answers can be found by reading the preceeding section. These questions reinforce the importance of reading the section before coming to class.

### Real-Data Application Problems

This book includes many new problems that use real-world applications for the mathematical subject, making the concepts easier to understand. Many times the charts and graphics in the text look like the types of charts and graphics students see in the media.

### Descriptive Statistics

Beginning in Chapter 1 and then continuing through the rest of the book, students are introduced to descriptive statistics. In Chapter 1 we cover tables and bar charts, as well as mean, median, and mode. These topics are carried through the rest of the book. Along the way we add to the list of descriptive statistics by including scatter diagrams and line graphs.

### Using Technology

Scattered throughout the book are exercises that demonstrate how graphing calculators, spreadsheets and computer graphing programs can be used to enhance the topics being covered.

### Facts from Geometry

This feature gives students a chance to see how topics from geometry are related to the math they are using.
