Finite Math is incessantly a required course, taken by students who come with a weak math background and struggle with the subject. Young/Lee’s Finite Mathematics: An Applied Approach 3rd Edition is written with these students in mind. In spite of the excellent variety of drill, practice and conceptual problems laced with relevant real-world applications, students in finite math incessantly struggle, prompting them to lean at the chapter’s examples for assist. On this text, the authors provide examples that aren’t just quick recipes to be applied to a particular problem, but fairly they offer actual insight into the issue at hand, as well to the general concept being developed. The examples assist the students retain essential concepts and then apply them in the exercises that follow. The usage of color in a way that carries the student’s eye into the exposition that surrounds an example, the student is led, gently, to generalization and understanding. Young/Lee have found that delicate balance between accurate, precise and useful mathematics and aiding the struggling student towards successfully learning it.
