Overview
Visualize. Interact. Succeed. College Algebra: Graphs and Models helps you “see the math” through its focus on visualization and technology. Its consistent approach of focus on functions, visual emphasis, sidebyside algebraic and graphical solutions, and realdata applications helps you succeed in your math course. The 6th Edition enhances instruction on review topics. Integrated review provides just the help you need, when you need it. The authors also provide tools specifically created for students who may need additional practice, which can be used independently by students or by instructors in the classroom.
