Front matter:
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 and 4 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 and 4.6 are the same Examples and Exercises from the other sections of that chapter that can be worked with technology. The technology used in those problems is embedded into the textbook, so there is no need to purchase any additional technology!
