Chapter numbers correspond to “Elements of Mathematical Reasoning”, Third Custom Edition for Illinois State University, published by Pearson Custom Publishing. ISBN: 0-536-18515-8
Note: This custom edition is divided into two main sections, so there are some chapter number duplications. Section 1 uses letters to identify subchapters (like 4D), while Section 2 uses numbers (like 4.3).
Reasoning (inductive and deductive), argumentation, logic, truth tables, Venn diagrams.
Units, conversions between units, standardized units, problem-solving.
Interest (simple and compound), investments, loan payments.
A video narrative about exponential growth, with many real-world examples such as population and energy use.
Use this interactive calculator to experiment with the different variables in exponential growth and decay, such as growth/decay rate, time between doublings/halvings, resulting population numbers, and more.
Khan Academy statistics playlist.
Definitions, sampling, types of statistical studies, evaluating studies.
Data types (discrete and continuous), levels of measurement, measurement error, percentages in statistics, index numbers.
Frequency tables, data distribution and graphical representations, misleading uses of graphs.
Averages, shapes of distributions (number of modes, symmetry, skewness, and variation), measures of variation, standard deviation.
The normal distribution and its properties, standard scores, the Central Limit Theorem.
Khan Academy probability playlist
Probability of dependent events.
Several kinds of probability problems explained.
