9780030008979: The Mathematical Palette

The second edition of THE MATHEMATICAL PALETTE makes mathematics enjoyable, relevant, understandable, and informative for liberal arts students. The text stresses learning mathematics through discovery and applications, as a means to learning about mathematical ideas rather than rote memorization, drill, and practice. An emphasis on developing students' problem-solving skills generates a positive attitude towards mathematics and encourages an appreciation of its beauty and power. Changes to this edition emphasize writing and critical thinking skills. The history of mathematicians is presented along with numerous, everyday applications to illustrate the evolution and practicality of math and parallel the creativity of liberal arts majors.
