  • Examples and Exercises—contributed by Catherine W. Johnson of Alamance Community College—include real-life scenarios that allied health students will encounter in their allied health careers. The examples and exercises demonstrate how relevant mastering the skills of mathematics are in the working world. Other topics that students will encounter in their personal lives, such as finances and consumerism, are also featured in the Examples and Exercises.
  • The Aufmann Interactive Method (AIM) allows students to try each skill as it is presented. Each set of matched-pair examples is organized around an objective and includes a worked example and a You Try It example for students. Complete worked-out solutions are available in the appendix.
  • Each chapter begins with a set of learning objectives woven throughout the text in Exercises, Chapter Tests, and Cumulative Reviews. These elements connect the text to the print and multimedia ancillaries, resulting in a seamless, easy-to-navigate learning system.
  • To help students master and retain core concepts, exercises that follow the presentation of a new operation require students to connect verbal phrases and mathematical processes.
  • Mathematics with Allied Health Applications contains a wide variety of exercises that promote skill-building, skill maintenance, concept development, critical thinking and problem-solving.
  • Problem Solving sections at the end of each chapter introduce students to various problem-solving strategies. Students are encouraged to write their own strategies and draw diagrams in order to find solutions; several open-ended problems are also included.
  • Applying the Concepts exercise provide further exploration of topics, requiring analysis or incorporating concepts discussed earlier in the text.
  • Projects and Group activities are featured at the end of each chapter. They can be used for extra-credit or cooperative learning activities.
