TL;DR: do you know of an undergrad textbook that covers numeracy with an emphasis on genuine context (as opposed to the artificial word problems that are all too common)?
I am an instructor in the US, teaching in a large, research university. I am looking for a textbook that teaches numeracy at the college-level (so above the level of algebra 2) to students who need math courses for their degree, but have limited interest in the subject.
More specifically: I am looking for a book that teaches the students different skills (logical, statistical, etc) for analyzing the math that appears in the newspaper.
I am aware of books like "A Mathematician Reads the Newspaper," and I would be happy to find other books like this, but am hoping to discover a textbook on or near this topic.
