Overview
Hallmark features of this title
 Connecting the Concepts gives students the opportunity to tie together concepts from multiple sections or chapters and includes the allimportant mixed practice.
 Exploring the Concept activities ask students to dive deeper into a key concept.
 AlgebraicGraphical Connections, Translating for Success and Visualizing for Success draw connections between math from multiple perspectives.
 Exercises foster skills and greater conceptual understanding, including “Aha!” exercises that develop student insight on solving certain problem types, “Synthesis” exercises that ask them to combine skills from earlier sections, and “Writing” exercises that require critical thinking to explain concepts.
 MidChapter Reviews and endofchapter resources provide reinforcement for review and retention.
