Slutsåld

Get the mathematics textbook that relates to real life. A MATHEMATICAL VIEW OF OUR WORLD focuses on the math you'll need to know for your liberal arts major and a career outside of science or mathematics. And with iLrn Tutorial, you get explanations from the textbook, examples, step-by-step problem solving help, unlimited practice, and chapter-by-chapter video lessons. Plus, Personal Tutor with SMARTHINKING gives you access to one-on-one, online tutoring help with an expert in the subject who has a copy of your textbook. And you get a virtual study group, too-interact with the tutor and other students using two-way audio, an interactive whiteboard for discussing the problem, and instant messaging.
