**Mathematics with Applications in the Management, Natural, and Social Sciences** presents sound mathematics in an understandable manner, proceeding from familiar to new material and from concrete examples to general rules and formulas. The Eleventh Edition retains its focus on real-world problem solving, but has been refreshed with revised and added content, updated and new applications, fine-tuned and newly-integrated pedagogical devices, and enhanced exercise sets. The new edition supports students with a tightly integrated MyMathLab^{®} course and quality applications and exercises.

**Teaching and Learning Experience **This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience. Here’s how:

**Personalized help with MyMathLab**^{®}**:**MyMathLab delivers proven results by personalizing the learning process.**Strong foundation of algebra**: The authors devote the first four chapters to algebra topics that form the foundation for the finite mathematics and calculus topics that follow.**Built for student success:**proven pedagogy, robust exercise sets, and comprehensive end-of-chapter material help students succeed in the course.**Motivation**: Students constantly see the math applied to their major areas of study.

**MyMathLab**

Join over 11 million students benefiting from Pearson MyLabs.

This title can be supported by MyMathLab, an online homework and tutorial system designed to test and build your understanding. Would you like to use the power of MyMathLab to accelerate your learning?

These are the steps you need to take:

1. Make sure that your lecturer is already using the system

Ask your lecturer before purchasing a MyLab product as you will need a **course ID** from them before you can gain access to the system.

2. Check whether an access code has been included with the book at a reduced cost.

If it has, it will be on the inside back cover of the book.

3. If you have a **course ID** but no access code, you can benefit from MyMathLab at a reduced price by purchasing a pack containing a copy of the book and an access code for MyMathLab (ISBN: 9781292072630)

4. If your lecturer is using the MyLab and you would like to purchase the product...Go to www.mymathlab.com to buy access to this interactive study programme.

**Strong foundation of algebra**: The authors devote the first four chapters to coverage of algebra topics that form the foundation of the finite mathematics and calculus topics that follow.

**Foundational Chapters:**The text begins with four chapters of algebra that can be used in a variety of ways based on the needs of the students and the goals of the course. Take advantage of all the content in these chapters as needed so students will be more successful with later topics and future courses.**Diagnostic Tests**—As a way to address the often weak algebra skills that students bring to this course, two diagnostic exams are provided just prior to Chapter 1.**Prerequisite Skills Test**assesses student understanding of the core skills students should have prior to starting the course.**Calculus Readiness Test**is designed to diagnose any gaps in algebra skills prior to starting the calculus content in Chapter 11.**Fully Worked-Out Solutions**to the diagnostic tests are provided in the back of the book as a way to help students self-remediate as needed, saving valuable class time. References to specific sections for remediation are provided with the solutions to the Calculus Readiness Test so that students can take advantage of Chapters 1-4 for self-remediation.**Balanced Approach**: Multiple representations of a topic (symbolic, numerical, graphical, verbal) are given when appropriate. However, the authors do not believe that all representations are useful for all topics, so effective alternatives are discussed only when they are likely to increase student understanding.

**Built for student success: **proven pedagogy, robust exercise sets, and comprehensive end-of-chapter material help students succeed in the course.

**Exercises have been updated**to reflect the latest data and to incorporate feedback received on the previous version of the text.**NEW!**Approximately 21% of the 5,487 exercises in the text are new or updated.

**Example/Exercise Connection**: Selected exercises include a reference back to related example(s) within the section (e.g., “See Examples 6 and 7”) to facilitate what students do naturally when they use a book—i.e., look for specific examples when they get stuck on a problem.**NEW!**A careful and thorough review of the**relationship between examples and exercises**has been completed to ensure that students have adequate and relevant examples to refer to when working on homework exercises**Writing, Connections**(relate current topics to earlier sections), and**Technology Required**exercises are specially marked, and provide variety in addition to the drill, conceptual, and application-based exercises.**NEW! Exercises are now better paired**so that the even exercises require similar knowledge for solution as the corresponding odd exercise (the answer for which is at the back of the book in the Student Edition).**Caution notes**highlight common student difficulties or warn against frequently made mistakes.**Checkpoint Exercises**in the margin are keyed to the discussion in the text. These exercises provide students with an opportunity to practice and gauge their level of understanding after learning a new skill. Answers to the exercises appear after homework exercises in each section.- End-of-Chapter materials are designed to help students prepare for exams and include a
**Summary of Key Terms and Symbols**and**Key Concepts**, as well as a very thorough set of**Review Exercises</b**

**New and Revised Content**

**Diagnostic Tests**—as a way to address the often weak algebra skills that students bring to this course, two diagnostic exams are provided just prior to Chapter 1.**Prerequisite Skills Test**assesses student understanding of the core skills students should have prior to starting the course.**Calculus Readiness Test**is designed to diagnose any gaps in algebra skills prior to starting the calculus content in Chapter 11.**Fully worked-out solutions**to the diagnostic tests are provided in the back of the book as a way to help students self-remediate as needed, saving valuable class time. References to specific sections for remediation are provided with the solutions to the Calculus Readiness Test so that students can take advantage of Chapters 1-4 for self-remediation.

**Quadratic functions consolidation**—in the previous edition there were two separate sections for quadratic functions and applications of quadratic functions (3.4 and 3.5). These two sections have been consolidated for ease of teaching.**Implicit differentiation and related rates**—by popular demand, these topics have been added to the text (sections 12.4 and 12.5). Examples and exercises in these two new sections include applications to business, such as the rate of change of the number of employees and the revenue of a corporation.**Examples have been updated**to reflect the latest data and to incorporate feedback received on the previous version of the text. Approximately 22% of the 646 examples in the text are new or updated.**Additional figures**—an additional six figures were added to Section 2.2 to help illustrate slope as part of writing the equation of a line.**Graphing calculator**screen shots have been updated to represent the latest TI calculator, the TI-84+C. These visuals often prove valuable even to students not using graphing calculators.**Case Studies**—the popular culminating activities at the end of every chapter have been expanded to provide options for*extended projects*and*group work*. In addition, two of the case studies are completely new and five have been updated significantly.**Student Learning Objectives**for every section are provided at the back of the text. These objectives describe what students should be able to do after studying each section of the text.

**New and Revised Exercises**

- A careful and thorough review of the
**relationship between examples and exercises**has been completed to ensure that students have adequate and relevant examples to refer to when working homework exercises. - A table at the beginning of the answers for
**Review Exercises**tells students which section of the book will provide help for each review exercise. That same table is available to instructors on the Review Exercise Set page in the Annotated Instructor’s Edition. **Exercises are now better paired**so that the even exercises require similar knowledge for solution as the corresponding odd exercise (the answer for which is at the back of the book).**Exercises have been updated**to reflect the latest data and to incorporate feedback received on the previous version of the text. Approximately 21% of the 5,487 exercises in the text are new or updated.
