How is life different from 25 or even 10 years ago? Mathematics has profoundly changed our world, from banking & computers to listening to music. This course is designed for those who haven't had college mathematics but would like to understand some of the mathematical concepts behind important modern applications.
The writing of textbooks and making them freely available on the web is an idea whose time has arrived. Most college mathematics textbooks attempt to be all things to all people and, as a result, are much too big and expensive. This perhaps made some sense when these books were rather expensive to produce and distribute--but this time has passed.
