This book is an overview of modern mathematical concepts, the majority of which are non-algebraic and suitable for a college-level course on quantitative literacy for liberal arts majors.

The majority of the chapters in the book are independently written, allowing the instructor to pick and choose which topics to cover.

The usefulness of the mathematics is emphasised. The main text covers the essential information for each topic, and exploratory exercises suitable for in-class, group, or solo research provide more detail.
