This book is designed to be used in any Finite Mathematics course, whether College Algebra is a prerequisite or not. There are sections at the end of Chapters 2, 4, and 8 that use technology to solve problems that are solved in other sections in the chapter. As the instructor of the course, you can choose how much technology you’d like to use. The problems worked in Sections 2.5, 4.6, and 8.8 are the same Examples from the other sections of that chapter that can be worked with technology. The technology used in those problems is in the Back Matter of the textbook, so there is no need to purchase any additional technology!

A fun fact about this book is that it was adapted and written by four Louisiana natives who decided to add a bit of Louisiana to the content, examples, and exercises in the book. See if you can identify the intermittent references to Louisiana throughout!

About This Book

This textbook was created through Connecting the Pipeline: Libraries, OER, and Dual Enrollment from Secondary to Postsecondary, a $1.3 million project funded by LOUIS: The Louisiana Library Network and the Institute of Library and Museum Services. This project supports the extension of access to high-quality post-secondary opportunities to high school students across Louisiana and beyond by creating materials that can be adopted for dual enrollment environments. Dual enrollment is the opportunity for a student to be enrolled in high school and college at the same time.

The cohort-developed OER course materials are released under a license that permits their free use, reuse, modification and sharing with others. This includes a corresponding course available in Moodle and Canvas that can be imported to other platforms. For access/questions, contact Affordable Learning Louisiana.

If you are adopting this textbook, we would be glad to know of your use via this brief survey.
