For All Practical Purposes (Eleventh Edition)

For All Practical Purposes emphasizes the connections between contemporary mathematics and modern society. Long a foundational text in the development of the liberal arts mathematics course, its distinctive style introduces students to real math applications without simply listing equations and asking students to crunch numbers—practice is geared toward understanding what these equations do and what they can reveal.

For All Practical Purposes seeks to engage those students who tend to be wary or disinterested in math courses and to show them both the usefulness of these math concepts and the beauty of math as applied in the world around us.

 Powered by COMAP content, Mathmodels.org has been reimagined as a new resource to make math modeling a year round activity. Teachers and students may use the materials found on this site to enrich their classes and help prepare students for mathematical modeling competitions.  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

The Mathematical Modeling Handbook

You need great materials to teach mathematical modeling as mandated by the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM). The Teachers College Mathematical Modeling Handbook is the ideal text to do just that.

Helping students develop a mathematical disposition encourages recognition of mathematical opportunities in everyday events. The TC Mathematical Modeling Handbook bolsters the CCSSM approach to interpret modeling not as a collection of isolated topics but in relation to the content standards. The Handbook provides modules containing teacher guides, student activities, possible solutions and natural classroom extensions for over 25 topics, together with references to specific modeling standards for which the topics may be appropriate.  Learn More

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

Precalculus: Modeling Our World (2nd Edition)

Precalculus: Modeling Our World uses contemporary applications and the modeling process to teach and motivate students in a high school precalculus course. Using real-world applications, students explore the essential concepts and develop data analysis and problem-solving skills that they need in their future studies and career.  Learn More
