Precalculus: Modeling Our World 2nd Edition

This is a different precalculus text. It contains all of the topics that you would expect to find in a precalculus text and more; but it is a text written by COMAP and applications is our middle name. Thus you will see the concepts and skills of precalculus presented from an applications and modeling point of view. Moreover, this is an activity and problem-solving based book. We want students to experience the mathematics they are learning in a way that will make both the mathematics and the contemporary applications come alive.

We make serious use of graphing calculators and a variety of software, including spreadsheets and geometric utility programs. We introduce and make use of data analysis techniques. All of which permit us to analyze deeper and more meaningful problems. And we have attempted to add material that will in fact, as well as name, better prepare students for their work in calculus—from our introductory work on functions to our final chapter on finite difference equations. We use a spiraling approach, coming back to earlier ideas in later chapters, so that we can keep those ideas, concepts, and skills alive, reinforcing their importance as well as providing additional practice.  Learn More

 Discrete Mathematics: Modeling Our World
(Formerly Discrete Mathematics through Applications) 4th Edition

Written specifically for high school courses, Discrete Mathematics: Modeling Our World is a new fourth edition of the formerly titled Discrete Mathematics Through Applications. It is designed to help you implement mathematical modeling in your classroom, in a way that promotes active learning, critical thinking, and fully-engaged student participation. With this text, students will see the connections among mathematical topics and real-life events and situations, while sharpening their problem solving, mathematical reasoning and communication skills.  Learn More

 College Algebra: Modeling Our World 1st Edition

This course is a gateway to collegiate mathematics. As such you will see a number of essential new concepts and be asked to learn a number of important new skills. But, most of all, we hope you have fun. Mathematics is important. Mathematics may be the most useful subject you will learn. Using mathematics to solve truly interesting problems about how our world works can and should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Mathematics: Modeling Our World (MMOW) Course 1, 2 & 3 (2nd Edition)

Based on feedback from users of the first edition, COMAP has completed a major revision of Courses 1-3, now available in both print and CD-ROM.

• Some chapters are completely rewritten (i.e., Pick a Winner and Landsat, which is now titled Scene from Above). Other chapters are streamlined while retaining the thematic, modeling approach.
• Most chapters are shorter. The revised Course 1 has a total of 57 Activities— a 39% reduction from first edition’s 93.  Learn More
