Showing why mathematics matters – In College Algebra with Modeling and Visualization 6th edition (PDF) Gary Rockswold doesn’t just mention real-world examples; he teaches mathematical concepts through those applications. For example, if we look at Facebook usage over time, what might that tell us about predictions and linear growth? In this way, college students learn the concepts in the context of the world they know, which leads to better understanding and retention.
