A new text for the liberal arts math course by a seasoned author team, Mathematical Excursions, is uniquely designed to help students see math at work in the contemporary world. Using the proven Aufmann Interactive Method, students learn to master problem-solving in meaningful contexts. In addition, multi-part Excursion exercises emphasize collaborative learning. The text s extensive topical coverage offers instructors flexibility in designing a course that meets their students needs and curriculum requirements. The Excursions activity and corresponding Excursion Exercises, denoted by an icon, conclude each section, providing opportunities for in-class cooperative work, hands-on learning, and development of critical-thinking skills. These activities are also ideal for projects or extra credit assignments. The Excursions are designed to reinforce the material that has just been covered in the section in a fun and engaging manner that will enhance a student s journey and discovery of mathematics. The proven Aufmann Interactive Method ensures that students try concepts and manipulate real-life data as they progress through the material. Every objective contains at least one set of matched-pair examples.
