From the Preface:

David Lippman wrote:The traditional high school and college mathematics sequence leading from algebra up through calculus could leave one with the impression that mathematics is all about algebraic manipulations. This book is an exploration of the wide world of mathematics, of which algebra is only one small piece. The topics were chosen because they provide glimpses into other ways of thinking mathematically, and because they have interesting applications to everyday life. Together, they highlight algorithmic, graphical, algebraic, statistical, and analytic approaches to solving problems.

This book is available online for free, in both Word and PDF format. You are free to change the wording, add materials and sections or take them away. I welcome feedback, comments and suggestions for future development. If you add a section, chapter or problems, I would love to hear from you and possibly add your materials so everyone can benefit.
