A survey of math for liberal arts majors. This book is a survey of contemporary mathematical topics: voting theory, weighted voting, fair division, graph theory, scheduling, growth models, finance math, statistics, and historical counting systems. Core material for each topic is covered in the main text, with additional depth available through exploration exercises appropriate for in-class, group, or individual investigation.

The text is designed so that most chapters are independent, allowing the instructor to choose a selection of topics to be covered. 
Emphasis is placed on the applicability of the mathematics.
