Synopsis: In the second edition of his popular text APPLIED MATHEMATICS FOR THE MANAGERIAL, LIFE, AND SOCIAL SCIENCES, Soo Tan builds on the features that have made his books market leaders--a real-life, problem-solving approach, a concise writing style, and wealth of interesting and illustrative applications. The author provides plenty of pedagogical tools to help students understand and comprehend the material, and he now includes innovative use of technology that is optional but integrated throughout the book. Tan is also well-known for his ability to present quantitative techniques in an intuitive and accessible yet accurate manner.
About the Author: By the time I started writing the first of what turned out to be a series of textbooks in mathematics for students in the managerial, life, and social sciences, I had quite a few years of experience teaching mathematics to non-mathematics majors. One of the most important lessons I learned from my early experience teaching these courses is that many of the students come into these courses with some degree of apprehension. This awareness led to the intuitive approach I have adopted in all of my texts. As you will see, I try to introduce each abstract mathematical concept through an example drawn from a common real life experience. Once the idea has been conveyed, I then proceed to make it precise, thereby assuring that no mathematical rigor is lost in this intuitive treatment of the subject. Another lesson I learned from my students, is that they have a much greater appreciation of the material if the applications are drawn from their fields of interest and from situations that occur in the real world. This is one reason you will see so many exercises in my texts that are modeled from data gathered from newspapers, magazines, journals, and other media. Whether it be the ups and downs of the stock market, the growth of HMOs in the U.S., the solvency of the social security system, the budget deficit, the aids epidemic, or the growth of the internet, I weave topics of current interest into my examples and exercises, to keep the book relevant to all of my readers.
