This popular, pedagogically rich mainstream text for beginning algebra teaches by the use of clear models and detailed explanations,a consistent and well developed problem-solving strategy, and an emphasis on estimation skills. These elements all reflect the author's philosophy of teaching, and the concepts are continually reinforced throughout the text by the thoughtful and well-designed use of pedagogy.
Normal 0 false false false Elayn Martin-Gay's developmental math textbooks and video resources are motivated by her firm belief that every student can succeed. Martin-Gay's focus on the student shapes her clear, accessible writing, inspires her constant pedagogical innovations, and contributes to the popularity and effectiveness of her video resources (available separately). This revision of Martin-Gay's algebra series continues her focus on students and what they need to be successful.
"Beginning and intermediate algebra was designed to reduce textbook costs to students while not reducing the quality of mateirlas. This text includes many detailed examples for each section along with several problems for students to practice and master concepts. Complete answers are included for students to check work and receive immediate feedback on their progress"--back cover.

BEGINNING AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA: CONNECTING CONCEPTS THROUGH APPLICATIONS, shows students how to apply traditional mathematical skills in real-world contexts. The emphasis on skill building and applications engages students as they master algebraic concepts, problem solving, and communication skills. Students develop sound mathematical skills by learning how to solve problems generated from realistic applications, instead of learning techniques without conceptual understanding. Authors Mark Clark and Cynthia Anfinson have developed several key ideas to make concepts real and vivid for students. First, the authors place an emphasis on developing strong algebra skills that support the applications, enhancing student comprehension and developing their problem solving abilities. Second, applications are integrated throughout, drawing on realistic and numerically appropriate data to show students how to apply math and to understand why they need to know it. These applications require students to think critically and develop the skills needed to explain and think about the meaning of their answers. Third, important concepts are developed as students progress through the course and overlapping elementary and intermediate content in kept to a minimum. Chapter 8 sets the stage for the intermediate material where students explore the eyeball best-fit approach to modeling and understand the importance of graphs and graphing including graphing by hand. Fourth, Mark and Cynthia's approach prepares students for a range of courses including college algebra and statistics. In short, BEGINNING AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA: CONNECTING CONCEPTS THROUGH APPLICATIONS develops strong mathematical skills using an engaging, application-driven and problem solving-focused approach to algebra.

Beginning and Intermediate Algebra extends the successful Streeter/Hutchison/Bergman series of developmental mathematics worktexts to another course. The book combines topics from the successful Beginning Algebra worktext and topics from the Intermediate Algebra worktext. The book utilizes Streeter's popular pedagogy, including active learning backed by Check Yourself exercises, in this combined algebra book. The worktext is accompanied by numerous useful supplements, including a SMART CD-ROM, videos, and Online Learning Center.

The new edition of BEGINNING & INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA welcomes two new co-authors Rosemary Karr and Marilyn Massey who along with David Gustafson have developed a learning plan to help students succeed in Beginning Algebra and transition to the next level in their coursework. The new edition has been thoroughly updated with new pedagogical features and a new interior design that make the text both easier to read and easier to use. Based on their years of experience in developmental education, the new accessible approach builds upon the book's known clear writing and engaging style which teaches students to develop problem-solving skills and strategies that they can use in their everyday lives. The authors have developed an acute awareness of students' approach to homework and present a learning plan keyed to new Learning Objectives and supported by a comprehensive range of exercise sets that reinforces the material that students have learned setting the stage for their success. The new edition of BEGINNING & INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA is an exciting and innovative revision that takes an already successful text and makes it more compelling for today's instructor and student.

Author: Margaret L. Lial Genre: Mathematics Publisher: Addison-Wesley ISBN: 0321127153 Book Pages: 1152 Format: PDF, ePub & Mobi
The Lial series has helped thousands of students succeed in developmental mathematics through its friendly writing style, numerous realistic examples, extensive problem sets, and complete supplements package. In keeping with its proven track record, this revision includes a new open design, more exercises and applications, and additional features to help both students and instructors succeed.
This package contains the MyMathLab Access Kit and the Guided Notebook. Beginning & Intermediate Algebra by Trigsted, Bodden, and Gallaher is the first online, completely “clickable” Beginning & Intermediate Algebra text to take full advantage of MyMathLab's features and benefits. Kirk Trigsted saw marked improvements in student learning when he started teaching with MyMathLab, but he noticed that most students started their assignments by going directly to the MyMathLab homework exercises without consulting their textbook. This inspired Kirk to write a true eText, built within MyMathLab, to create a dynamic, seamless learning experience that would better meet the needs and expectations of his students. Completely clickable and fully integrated–the Trigsted eText is designed for today's learners. Beginning & Intermediate Algebra is also available with two printed resources to provide additional support for your classroom: The eText Reference is a spiral-bound, printed version of the eText that provides a place for students to do practice work and summarize key concepts from the online videos and animations. In addition to the benefits it provides students, the eText Reference also provides portability for those instructors that prefer a printed text for class preparation. The Guided Notebook is an interactive workbook that guides students through the course by asking them to write down key definitions and work through important examples for each section of the eText. This resource is available in a three-hole-punched, unbound format to provide the foundation for a personalized course notebook. Students can integrate their class notes and homework notes within the appropriate section of the Guided Notebook. Instructors can customize the Guided Notebook files found within MyMathLab.
