Soo T. Tan, Stonehill College

Soo T. Tan has published numerous papers in Optimal Control Theory and Numerical Analysis. He received his S.B. degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his M.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and his Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles. "One of the most important lessons I learned from my early experience teaching these courses is that many of the students come into these courses with some degree of apprehension. This awareness led to the intuitive approach I have adopted in all of my texts."

WebAssign is a flexible and fully customizable online instructional solution that puts powerful tools in the hands of teachers, enabling you to realize your teaching goals and instantly assess individual student performance to help students learn math, not just do online homework.

  • WEBASSIGN: FINITE MATHEMATICS FOR THE MANAGERIAL, LIFE, AND SOCIAL SCIENCES, Twelfth Edition, is fully supported by WebAssign, the powerful online homework and course management system that engages students in learning the math. WebAssign includes new end-of-chapter exercises and pre-built assignments vetted by trusted subject matter experts along with robust course, section, assignment, and question settings and online testing to help instructors foster a deeper understanding of course concepts.
  • CAREFULLY-CRAFTED EXERCISE SETS: SECTION EXERCISE SETS include Self-Check Exercises that let students solve problems and check their work against worked-out solutions, Concept Exercises that let students gauge their understanding, and Exercise Sets with a mix of rote and applied problems. CHAPTER REVIEW EXERCISE SETS include Summary of Principal Formulas and Terms for easy reference, fill-in-the-blank Concept Review questions that reinforce chapter terms and concepts, Review Exercises, and Before Moving On Exercises that ensure students have mastered the skills they need in later chapters.
  • OPTIONAL TECHNOLOGY: The optional coverage of technology gives instructors different ways to tailor technology to their course needs. The Using Technology sections have a traditional Example-Exercise format with step-by-step procedures and illustrations for ease of use in the classroom or self-study by students. Exploring with Technology questions in the main body of the text enhance students’ understanding by shedding further light on examples in the text through numerical or graphical solutions. The Modeling with Data exercises, found in many of the "Using Technology" subsections, show students how some of the functions found in the applications are constructed.
  • PORTFOLIOS highlight the careers of real people and discuss how they incorporate math into their daily professional activities. Among those interviewed are the City Manager of Fanfoto and the Technical Director, Europe, of SpiderCloud Wireless.
