Mathematics All Around, Fourth Edition, is the textbook for today’s liberal arts mathematics students. Tom Pirnot presents math in a way that is accessible, interesting, and relevant. Like having a teacher on call, its clear, conversational writing style is enjoyable to read and focuses on helping students understand the math, not just get the correct answers on the test. Useful features throughout the book enable students to become comfortable with thinking about numbers and interpreting the numerical world around them.

Problem Solving: Strategies and Principles; Set Theory: Using Mathematics to Classify Objects; Logic: The Study of What's True or False or Somewhere in Between; Graph Theory (Networks): The Mathematics of Relationships; Numeration Systems: Does It Matter How We Name Numbers?; Number Theory and the Real Number System: Understanding the Numbers All Around Us; Algebraic Models: How Do We Approximate Reality?; Modeling with Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities: What's the Best Way to Do It?; Consumer Mathematics: The Mathematics of Everyday Life; Geometry: Ancient and Modern Mathematics Embrace; Apportionment: How Do We Measure Fairness?; Voting: Using Mathematics to Make Choices; Counting: Just How Many Are There?; Probability: What Are the Chances?; Descriptive Statistics: What a Data Set Tells Us
