For freshman/sophomore, 2 semester/2-3 quarter courses covering finite mathematics and/or calculus for students in business, economics, social sciences, or life sciences.

Barnett/Ziegler/Byleen is designed to help students help themselves succeed in the course. This text offers more built-in guidance than any other on the market—with special emphasis on prerequisites skills—and a host of student-friendly features to help students catch up or learn on their own. The content is organized into three parts: (1) A Library of Elementary Functions (Chapters 1-2), (2) Finite Mathematics (Chapters 3-9), and (3) Calculus (Chapters 10-15).

This program provides a better teaching and learning experience. Here’s how:

  • More than 6,900 exercises in the text help you craft the perfect assignments for your students, with plenty of support for prerequisite skills.

  • Built-in guidance helps students help themselves learn course content.

  • Flexible coverage allows instructors to use this text in a way that suits their syllabus and teaching style.

MyMathLab not included. Students, if MyMathLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyMathLab is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.


MyMathLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.




Features + Benefits

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

  • More than 6,900 exercises in the text are carefully selected and graded, helping you craft the perfect assignments for your students.

    • Prerequisite skills are assessed at the beginning of the text and are revisited before each exercise set.

      • A Diagnostic Prerequisite Test prior to Chapter 1 helps students assess their prerequisite skills.

      • The Basic Algebra Review in Appendix A (referenced in the answers to the Diagnostic Prerequisite Test) provides students with the content they need to remediate those skills.

      • NEW! Skills Warm Up exercises begin most exercise sets, reviewing prerequisite knowledge specific to that section in a "just in time" approach. References to review material are provided for students who need a refresher.

    • A, B, and C levels of exercises make it easy to appropriately challenge your students. NEW! A, B, and C labels now appear in the Annotated Instructor’s Edition only, so students can work without being distracted by difficulty level.

    • Paired exercises of the same type and difficulty level (consecutive odd and even) allow you control over student use of answers (odd answers at the back of the text).

    • Ample and up-to-date applications illustrate the relevance of mathematics and give students opportunities to create and interpret mathematical models.

    • Optional graphing-utility and spreadsheet examples and exercises are clearly identified by an icon. These provide a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts, give students an opportunity to practice using tools they will likely use in the workplace, and allow students to solve problems that are not feasible to solve by hand.

    • Chapter Reviews include exercises at the A, B, and C levels as well as thorough end-of-chapter summaries keyed by page number to worked examples within the chapter.

    • Guided Lecture Notes offer a convenient, ready-to-use format, with ample space for students to take notes and show their work on in-class examples. The guide is text-specific, organized by Learning Objective, and highlights key examples and definitions. NEW! Instructors can download and edit this guide so the organization of the guide directly reflects the goals and approach of each lesson.

  • Built-in guidance helps students help themselves learn the course content.

    • 483 worked examples, including many with several parts.

      • Examples are annotated and the problem-solving steps are clearly identified, which gives students extra assistance in understanding the solution.

      • Dashed boxes show the detailed algebraic steps that are normally not included in textbooks, giving students extra help in working through the examples.

      • A Matched Problem follows each example, providing students with an opportunity to reinforce and test understanding before moving on.

    • Conceptual Insight boxes, appearing in nearly every section, either make explicit connections to previously learned concepts or provide a broader, more conceptual explanation of the topic, helping students place this new information in context.

    • Explore & Discuss problems in every section encourage students to think about a relationship or process before a result is stated or to investigate additional consequences of a development in the text. These problems can help students of all levels gain better insight into the mathematical concepts and are effective in both small and large classroom settings. NEW!  The author has provided Teaching Tips for less-experienced instructors on how to engage students in these discussions and the goals of the exploration.

  • Flexible coverage allows instructors to use this text in a way that suits their syllabus and teaching style.

    • Topic selection, coverage, and organization reflect the course outlines of many major colleges and universities. The content is organized into three parts:

      • A Library of Elementary Functions (Chapters 1-2) provides optional material that can be covered in its entirety or referred to as needed.

      • Finite Mathematics (Chapters 3–9) coverage features a separate chapter on the simplex method and thorough coverage of Markov chains.

      • Calculus (Chapters 10-15) coverage features early treatment of exponential and logarithmic functions plus more in-depth coverage of calculus topics than other texts.

    • Emphasis on the construction of mathematical models, especially in linear systems and linear programming, gives students critical tools for solving application problems.

    • Technology coverage is optional, but discussions on using graphing calculators and spreadsheets are included where appropriate.

    • Mini-Lectures are included for most sections of the text and provide additional classroom examples, a summary of suggested learning objectives, and teaching notes for the material. These mini-lectures are ideal for instructors who do not teach this course frequently, or just need some additional guidance or resources.

    • NEW! An Annotated Instructor's Edition is now available, providing answers to exercises directly on the exercise set page whenever possible.

      • Teaching Tips are also provided for less experienced instructors, giving them insight on common student pitfalls, suggestions for how to approach a topic, or reminders of which prerequisite skills students will be using.

      • Exercise difficulty level (i.e, A, B, and C) is indicated in the Annotated Instructor’s Edition only, so students can work without being distracted by difficulty level.

MyMathLab not included. Students, if MyMathLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyMathLab is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

  • Personalized learning with MyMathLab®: the accompanying MyMathLab course provides online homework and learning tools that help students help themselves succeed.

    • NEW! Increased exercise coverage—choose from 4300 assignable exercises to give students the varied practice they need.

    • NEW! Getting Ready content and assessment provides chapter-by-chapter remediation for gaps in prerequisite skills.

    • NEW! Adaptive learning functionality analyzes student work and points them toward resources that maximize their learning.

    • Instructional videos for every example in the text are ideal for self-paced or independent study.
