Using authentic data to make math meaningful to students, Jay Lehmann’s algebra series uses a curve-fitting approach to model compelling, real-world situations, while answering the perennial question “But what is this good for?” Beginning with interesting data sets, students are asked to find models and derive equations to fit a scenario, helping them to understand functions graphically, numerically, and symbolically. Updated exercises, labs, and graphs deepen students’ understanding of core concepts and keeps them motivated to learn.

Modeling authentic data through curve-fitting gives students new meaning to the math Seeking the answer to students' perennial question "But what is this good for?" the Lehmann Algebra Series uses authentic, real-life data sets to find models and derive equations that fit the scenario. The curve-fitting approach teaches the mathematical concepts within the context of data, getting students engaged from the start and building conceptual understanding. Updates in this revision keep the data sets authentic and current, and provide even more resources for students to practice, review, and explore the concepts. Also available with MyLab Math By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.

For over three decades, this best-selling classic has been used by thousands of students in the United States and abroad as a must-have textbook for a transitional course from calculus to analysis. It has proven to be very useful for mathematics majors who have no previous experience with rigorous proofs. Its friendly style unlocks the mystery of writing proofs, while carefully examining the theoretical basis for calculus. Proofs are given in full, and the large number of well-chosen examples and exercises range from routine to challenging. The second edition preserves the book’s clear and concise style, illuminating discussions, and simple, well-motivated proofs. New topics include material on the irrationality of pi, the Baire category theorem, Newton's method and the secant method, and continuous nowhere-differentiable functions.

Exploring Inequality: A Sociological Approach uses a sociological lens to explore the topics of diversity and social inequality. This sociological perspective demonstrates how social identities - like sex, gender, sexuality, race and ethnicity, social class, and disability status - aresocially constructed. The book also focuses on social inequality, illustrating how individual forces at the micro-level - along with structural factors on the macro-level - often perpetuate inequalities. In so doing, it shows that power and privilege, along with face-to-face meetings andinteractions, structure the unequal worlds in which we live. Exploring Inequality explains how identities and inequalities that we take for granted are never static, but always changing-and how everyday examples of activism work to erode these inequalities.

Student-Friendly Coverage of Probability, Statistical Methods, Simulation, and Modeling Tools Incorporating feedback from instructors and researchers who used the previous edition, Probability and Statistics for Computer Scientists, Second Edition helps students understand general methods of stochastic modeling, simulation, and data analysis; make optimal decisions under uncertainty; model and evaluate computer systems and networks; and prepare for advanced probability-based courses. Written in a lively style with simple language, this classroom-tested book can now be used in both one- and two-semester courses. New to the Second Edition Axiomatic introduction of probability Expanded coverage of statistical inference, including standard errors of estimates and their estimation, inference about variances, chi-square tests for independence and goodness of fit, nonparametric statistics, and bootstrap More exercises at the end of each chapter Additional MATLAB® codes, particularly new commands of the Statistics Toolbox In-Depth yet Accessible Treatment of Computer Science-Related Topics Starting with the fundamentals of probability, the text takes students through topics heavily featured in modern computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, and associated fields, such as computer simulations, Monte Carlo methods, stochastic processes, Markov chains, queuing theory, statistical inference, and regression. It also meets the requirements of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Encourages Practical Implementation of Skills Using simple MATLAB commands (easily translatable to other computer languages), the book provides short programs for implementing the methods of probability and statistics as well as for visualizing randomness, the behavior of random variables and stochastic processes, convergence results, and Monte Carlo simulations. Preliminary knowledge of MATLAB is not required. Along with numerous computer science applications and worked examples, the text presents interesting facts and paradoxical statements. Each chapter concludes with a short summary and many exercises.

For a one-semester alternative to the traditional two-semester developmental algebra sequence that prepares students specifically for an Introductory Statistics course. Looking for a new path in algebra? Using authentic data to make math meaningful to students, Jay Lehmann’s A Pathway to Introductory Statistics provides a one-semester alternate path through developmental algebra to accelerate and prepare non-STEM students for introductory statistics. For many students’ majors, the most fitting college-level math course is statistics. Tailoring their developmental sequence–in both content and approach–to prepare students for this course of study can only improve their success. Infused with highly relevant data sets throughout, Lehmann presents students with both an introduction to descriptive statistics and the requisite algebra topics needed for a statistics course, while demonstrating the close link between the two subjects. This text equips students to reason statistically as they discover the skills and concepts they’ll need for statistics.
