Mathematical Ideas (12th Edition) is one of the most innovative textbooks to be developed for teaching math. Authors Miller, Heeren, and Hornsby offer a unique approach, relating mathematical concepts to television and movies, inspired by John Hornsby's inimitable ‘Math Goes to Hollywood' attack on the subject. The book offers engaging chapter starters, notes, exercises, and examples. The newest edition includes well reviewed examples and exercises and comes with additional resources (including online exercise sets, tutorials, and other assessment tools). Mathematical Ideas (12th Edition) ISBN 9780321693815 features 16 chapters, all of which end with tests that allow students to review and practice what they learned. Introductory chapters talk about problem solving and other important concepts like inductive reasoning, calculating, estimating, and graph-reading. Set theory and its basic concepts are also discussed, as well as a brief introduction to logic. Middle chapters go into enumeration systems, number theories, and real numbers. Students will also appreciate the introduction to algebra as well as graphs, functions, equalities and inequalities. The book tackles geometry and counting methods, statistics, personal financial management, trigonometry, graph theory, and voting and appointment. The book boasts an amazing author team, starting with Charles Miller, a well-known professor from the America River College. Vern Heeren has taught math for nearly 40 years, and has co-authored a number of mathematical books with both Hornsby and Miller. John Hornsby is best known for his unconventional methods in teaching and writing, as evidenced by his 25 years of authorship. His best works include A Graphical Approach to Algebra, Precalculus, College Algebra, Trigonometry, and Developmental Mathematics, among many others.
