Introductory Mathematical Analysis forBusiness, Economics, and the Life and Social Sciences provides a mathematical foundation for students in avariety of fields and majors. The authors establish an emphasis on algebraiccalculations that sets this text apart from other introductory, appliedmathematics books. Because the process of calculating variables builds skillsin mathematical modeling, this emphasis paves the way for students to solvereal-world problems that use calculus. The book's comprehensive structure—covering college algebra in Chapters 0 through 4, finite mathematics in Chapters 5 through 9, and calculus in Chapters 10 through 17— offers instructors flexibility in how they use thematerial based on the course they’re teaching, the semester they’re at, or whatthe students’ background allows and their needs dictate.
