Key differences between 5th and 4th editions

  • Period between current and previous publications: 4 years (2012 vs 2009).
  • Problem-solving voice balloons accompany many examples, providing tips about which problem-solving strategy might be applied to solve the example.
  • MyMathLab includes a new problem type that asks to choose the appropriate strategy before working a multi-part solution.
  • More than 800 exercises are updated or new in the Fifth Edition of Pirnot's Mathematics All Around.
  • Chapter 1 "Problem Solving" is focused on visualization in problem-solving strategies.
  • In Chapter 3 "Logic" solutions to many examples are simplified, including the section 3.4 "Verifying arguments".
  • Chapter 4 "Graph Theory" features a consolidated discussion of PERT (Project Evaluation Review Technique) scheduling.
  • Chapter 6 "Number Theory and the Real Number System" has a revised discussion of the properties of the real number system.
  • Algebra coverage is streamlined into a single Chapter 7 "Algebraic Models and Linear Systems".
  • In Chapter 8 "Consumer Mathematics" examples in consumer mathematics have been clarified, computations on refinancing loans have been streamlined, and new information on inflation is added. Examples use notation consistent with TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus calculators, and Using Technology exercises demonstrate how to use TI's TVM Solver.
  • Chapter 9 "Geometry" presents updated and simplified examples.
  • Chapters 10 "Apportionment" and 11 "Voting" provide a streamlined discussion of apportionment. New Between the Numbers feature encourages readers to investigate viable alternatives to the current plurality voting method.
  • Using Technology exercises in Chapter 14 "Descriptive Statistics" illustrate Excel’s built-in statistical functions as well as its Analysis ToolPak to simplify computations.
