Product Description NOTE: This edition features the same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf version. Books a la Carte also offer a great value; this format costs significantly less than a new textbook. Before purchasing, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. For Books a la Carte editions that include MyLab™ or Mastering™, several versions may exist for each title–including customized versions for individual schools–and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a Course ID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use MyLab or Mastering platforms. For freshman/sophomore, second-semester or second and third quarter courses covering finite mathematics for students in management or the natural and social sciences. This package includes MyLab Math. A strong foundation and logical progression through finite math and calculus The unique organization of Finite Mathematics with Applications in the Management, Natural, and Social Sciences gives students four chapters of college algebra, rather than the usual two, before moving into finite math and calculus. From there, the authors build upon familiar foundations and then move to new concepts; students are shown concrete examples before learning general rules and formulas.  With an ongoing focus on real-world problem solving, almost every section in the 12th Edition includes relevant, contemporary applications and fine-tuned pedagogical devices.  A prior course in basic algebra is assumed. Personalize learning with MyLab Math  By combining trusted authors’ content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.  0134862686 / 9780134862682 Finite Mathematics with Applications, Books a la Carte and MyLab Math with Pearson eText -- Title-Specific Access Card Package, 12/e Package consists of:    0134776410 / 9780134776415 Finite Mathematics with Applications In the Management, Natural, and Social Sciences, Books a la Carte Edition 12/e 013485165X / 9780134851655 MyLab Math with Pearson eText -- Standalone Access Card -- for Finite Mathematics with Applications in the Management, Natural, and Social Sciences, 12/e About the Author Marge Lial (late) was always interested in math; it was her favorite subject in the first grade! Lial's intense desire to educate both her students and herself has inspired the writing of numerous best-selling textbooks. Lial, who received bachelor's and master's degrees from California State University at Sacramento, was affiliated with American River College. An avid reader and traveler, her travel experiences often find their way into her books as applications, exercise sets, and feature sets. Her interest in archeology lead to trips to various digs and ruin sites, producing some fascinating problems for her textbooks involving such topics as the building of Mayan pyramids and the acoustics of ancient ball courts in the Yucatan.   Thomas W. Hungerford (late) received his bachelor’s degree from Holy Cross and his PhD from the University of Chicago. He taught for many years at the University of Washington (Seattle) before moving to Cleveland State University in 1980 and then to St. Louis University to in 2003. He wrote a number of research articles in algebra and several in mathematics education. Dr. Hungerford is the author or coauthor of more than a dozen mathematics textbooks, ranging from high school to graduate level, several of which are published by Pearson. He passionately promoted the effective use of technology in mathematics instruction. Dr. Hungerford was also a referee and reviewer for various mathematical journals and served on National Science Foundation panels for selecting grant recipients.   John P. Holcomb, Jr. received his bachelor's degree from St. Bonaventure University and his PhD from the University at Albany
