Mathematics is often challenging for students majoring in nontechnical fields. This book makes mathematical concepts more engaging with examples drawn from baseball and other sports, providing a basis for a solid survey of college math. Liberal arts students will find concepts applicable to qreal lifeq presented in ways not typically taught in college algebra courses. Topics covered include logical fallacies, unit conversions, statistics, probability, finance, geometry, modeling and voting theory. The book can be used in high school courses for students who have taken algebra and geometry.Plane Figures Area (square units) Perimeter (units) Rectangle A = L W P = 2L + 2W Parallelogram A = B H P = sum of side lengths Triangle A = ...
