Robert 'Bob' Blitzer uses his diverse background in three interconnected areas - art, math, and psychology - to develop one of the most effective learning tools in mathematics in Thinking Mathematically, Fifth Edition (ISBN 9780321645852). He maintains his highly regarded style in applying mathematical concepts in real world situations, presenting theories and systems in a practical and relevant manner. The book is written for students with interest in quantitative reasoning, liberal arts mathematics, mathematics for education, and finite mathematics. This undergraduate textbook is now on its 5th edition, offering new exercises that encourage critical thinking. It features a "Make Sense?' section, where Blitzer introduces new applications and problem solving exercises (all of which have been updated). The writing is concise and does not overwhelm with overly intellectualized explanations. It is useful to learners of different levels, as it covers basic principles of logic, set theory, algebra, number presentation, geometry, statistics, and many more. Additional chapters have also been integrated to discuss application skills in mathematical systems, financial management, and other practical areas such as voting and appointment. Instructors will appreciate the 'Voice Balloons' - a small section that appears in text pages, showing important concepts that instructors might say when explaining problems to students. Thinking Mathematically, Fifth Edition even includes other extra tools, including chapter reviews, tests, study tips, and a collection of practical exercises to help students effectively review and apply what they have learned. Robert Blitzer is known for his unique approach of making math relevant to various academic interests. Aside from Thinking Mathematically, he has also authored a long list of other books, with subjects ranging from algebra to trigonometry, precalculus, and many others.
