Recommendations for Textbook

I have a district that is looking for a textbook to use in the 3rd mathematics course for students that have completed Math A and/or Integrated Algebra and eventually Integrated Geometry. This course would be titled "Math for the Real World". Contents would include applications using equations and inequalities, conversions and formulas, tessellations, statistics and probability, discrete applications, scale drawings and models, applications of trigonometry, stocks and bonds, and math you really need. Any suggestions for a textbook. District is not married to the content listed. Thank you for the help. You can reply to me directly rather than through the listserv.

Teaching at best beckons us to morality; but it is
not in itself efficacious.
Teaching is like a mirror. It can show you if your
face is dirty, but the mirror cannot wash your face.
-Ravi Zacharias
