9780023854606: Mathematics in Life, Society, and the World
From the Publisher:

This contemporary approach to liberal arts math is especially helpful to instructors who want to break away from traditional instruction and move towards a more "modern" course that stresses rich ideas, little review, and more visualization. Mathematics in Life, Society and the World offers superb pedagogy, an accessible writing style, and mathematical integrity--and is student-friendly. Its unique three-part organization (Life, Society, the World) presents liberal arts students with sound, relevant mathematics and will leave them with the (correct) impression that math is useful and affects their lives in many positive ways.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: This contemporary approach to liberal arts math offers an accessible writing style, and mathematical integrity. Its unique three-part organization (Life, Society, the World) presents sound, relevant mathematics and will leave readers with the (correct) impression that math is useful and affects their lives in many positive ways. Key Topics: Mathematics in Life presents basic math and its everyday uses. Mathematics in Society applies math to broader topics such as game theory, voting systems and apportionment methods. Mathematics in the World features geometric applications (tessellations, conic sections, fractals) and other topics. Chapter 2 contains a solid discussion of the number systems. With a solid foundation in the numbers system, readers will find the math in the book more accessible. Three geometry chapters use geometry to describe large-scale structures in the world, increasing readers' perspectives and ease with visualization. Management math and voting and apportionment are featured in Part 2.
