Overview
Math hasn't changed, but students and the way they learn have. Introductory Algebra offers trusted content with thoughtful innovations, written by trusted authoreducators. In this revision of the Bittinger Paperback Worktext Series, the author team brings their extensive experience to developmental math courses, paired with strategic integration of content and technology. They focus on creating a foundation for you to study concepts, providing ample applications to reinforce understanding, and fostering retention to help you carry your successes forward to future courses and everyday life. In the 13th Edition, new Chapter Opener applications with graphics use current data and applications to present the math in context. New Student Activities begin with realworld data and guide you to examine a key concept in each chapter, while analyzing the data and connecting other concepts; new Skill Review in nearly every section reviews a previously presented skill where it is key to learning the new material; and much more.
