Active learning for active minds

The authors of the Mathematics in Action series believe that students learn mathematics best by actually doing the math within a realistic context. If a student is taking this course, why teach them the same content in the same way that they’ve already seen – yet did not retain? Following this principle, the authors provide a series of guided-discovery activities that help students to construct, reflect upon, and apply mathematical concepts, deepening their conceptual understanding as they do so. The active style of learning develops critical-thinking skills and mathematical literacy, while keeping the concepts in the context of real applications.

The 6th Edition includes updated examples and activities for maximum interest and relevance, along with new and enhanced digital resources in MyMathLab® for School to support conceptual understanding for students, wherever and whenever they need it.
