As the world around us changes and information comes at warp speed, it is more important than ever to be quantitatively literate. Yet most U.S. students leave high school with quantitative skills far below what they need and what employers are seeking, and virtually every college finds that many students need remedial mathematics. Based on the latest educational research, Math & YOU helps students develop the quantitative skills needed to be successful in school and the workplace, using real data, problems based on everyday situations, and activities built around topics that are recognizable and relevant. With this approach, students become comfortable with quantitative ideas and proficient in applying them.
