The zyBooks Approach
Less text doesn’t mean less learning.
People use numbers and perform calculations in everyday life, often without realizing. But math education seems to assume that students will become engineers or mathematicians (most won’t), or that students enjoy doing math for math’s sake (most don’t). Instead, this material focuses on teaching the math concepts that people use in everyday life and showing application of those concepts to improve one’s life — making better decisions, saving more money, estimating more accurately, understanding media reports, and more.
