Overview

Full of relevant, diverse, and current real-world applications, Stefan Waner and Steven Costenoble's FINITE MATHEMATICS AND APPLIED CALCULUS, 7th Edition helps your students relate to mathematics. Many applications are based on real, referenced data from business, economics, the life sciences, and the social sciences. Thorough, clearly delineated spreadsheet and TI Graphing Calculator instruction appears throughout. Acclaimed for accuracy and readability, FINITE MATHEMATICS AND APPLIED CALCULUS appeals to, and is appropriate for, all types of teaching and learning styles. Online option available: WebAssign, the powerful online homework and course management system that engages students in learning math.

Stefan Waner, Hofstra University

Stefan Waner and Steven R. Costenoble both received their Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, having studied several years apart with the same advisor, J. Peter May. Their paths merged when Steven joined Stefan at Hofstra University in 1987; since then they have coauthored 18 research papers as well as a research-level monograph in algebraic topology. By the early 1990s they had become dissatisfied with many of the Finite Mathematics and Applied Calculus textbooks. They wanted textbooks that were more readable and relevant to students' interests, containing examples and exercises that were interesting, and reflected the interactive approaches and techniques they found worked well with their own students. It therefore seemed natural to extend their research collaboration to a joint textbook writing project that expressed these ideals. To this day, they continue to work together on their textbook projects, their research in algebraic topology, and their teaching.

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 AND APPLIED CALCULUS, 7th 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.
  • INNOVATIVE PEDAGOGY: Question-and-Answer Dialogues, End-of-Section FAQs, and Before We Go On -- The text frequently uses informal question-and-answer dialogues that anticipate the kinds of questions that may occur to students, and thereby guide students through the development of new concepts. Most examples are followed by supplementary “Before We Go On” discussions, which may include a check on the answer, a discussion of the feasibility and significance of a solution, or an in-depth look at what the solution means.
  • QUICK EXAMPLES: Most definition boxes include quick, straightforward examples that students can use to solidify their understanding of each new concept.
