For courses in Beginning Algebra.
Understanding and Applying Mathematical Concepts
The goal of the Bittinger Concepts and Applications Series is to help today’s student learn and retain mathematical concepts. This proven program prepares students for the transition from skillsoriented elementary algebra courses to more conceptoriented collegelevel mathematics courses. This requires the development of criticalthinking skills: to reason mathematically, to communicate mathematically, and to identify and solve mathematical problems. The new editions support students with a tightly integrated MyLab™ Math course; a strong focus on problemsolving, applications, and concepts, and the robust MyMathGuide workbook and objectivebased video program. In addition, new material – developed as a result of the authors’ experience in the classroom, as well as from insights from faculty and students – includes more systematic review and preparation for practice, as well as stronger focus on realworld applications.
Also available with MyLab Math.
MyLab™ Math is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them absorb course material and understand difficult concepts.
