Richard N. Aufmann's Basic College Mathematics: An Applied Approach, ISBN 9781439046968 utilizes an 'objective-based' approach in its delivery to ensure that the needs of both the instructor and the student are met. The heart of this text, as in past editions, continues to be the Aufmann Interactive Method (AIM) which challenges students to be active participants, which of course, leads to deeper understanding of concepts and skills. A vast array of exercises is integrated throughout the text to enhance skill building, skill maintenance, concept development, critical thinking, and problem solving. Students are given application opportunities through features such as the 'How To' examples as well as the 'Examples/You Try It.' Complete solutions to the 'You Try It' problems can be found in the appendix at the back of the book and even show the student how to 'work the problem out.' This text also does a wonderful job of helping students review the concepts that they learn as they move through the book. Review features include chapter summaries which highlight the key words and essential rules and procedures presented within the chapter, concept reviews which present questions to help students reassess their learning, and finally review exercises which require students to practice working problems. Aufmann has carefully organized the concepts and skills within the pages of Basic College Mathematics: An Applied Approach to meet the needs of learners. 12 chapters focus on the larger concepts of basic college mathematics and are broken down even further into sections which tackle applications of those concepts. Concepts addressed in this text include whole numbers, fractions, decimals, ratio and proportion, percents, applications for business and consumers, statistics and probability, U.S. customary units of measurement, the metric system of measurement, rational numbers, introduction to algebra, and geometry.
