Book Description

Students majoring in business, social sciences, economics, or biological sciences should take one or two semester or quarter courses on finite mathematics during their sophomore or freshman year. This resource, Finite Mathematics for Business, Economics, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences, 13th edition, by Barnett/Ziegler/Byleen (PDF), is written with the intention of assisting college students in assisting themselves to achieve success in the course. This ebook provides more built-in advice than any other available on the market, with a particular emphasis on basic skills, as well as a variety of additional elements that are student-friendly and can assist students in catching up or learning on their own. The teaching and learning experiences offered by this mathematics program are superior. How to do it: The textbook contains more than 4,200 exercises, which will assist you in developing the ideal assignments for your students while also providing ample support for prerequisite abilities. Math students can better help themselves learn the material covered in their courses by using the built-in guidance. This textbook’s flexible covering makes it possible for teachers to employ it in a manner that is tailored to their curriculum and preferred method of instruction. MyMathLab® is an online instructional, assignment, and assessment tool designed to integrate with your Pearson text to tailor learning and enhance performance. This book is accessible with MyMathLab®. Students are motivated to actively learn and remember difficult topics by being given a broad variety of tasks to choose from, all of which are interactive, interesting, and can be assigned to them. Students, if you are interested in purchasing this title with MyMathLab, please inquire with your teacher about the appropriate package ISBN.

P.S. In addition, it’s possible that we have the teacher resources (testbank, solutions, and so on) for the 13th edition of Finite Mathematics for Business, Economics, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences. Get in touch for further information.
