Overview
This revision retains the hallmark characteristics that have made Beginning & Intermediate Algebra so easy to learn from, while adding updates to the text and MyLab to keep it more relevant, and more supportive, than ever. The building block organization of the text builds essential skills by breaking mathematics into manageable pieces. The authors act as a student’s “math coach,” there to support them at every turn with exercises, videos, and examples specifically built to help with the trickiest problems. Finally, an emphasis on the use of math in careers and financial literacy throughout helps to answer the perennial question from students: “when will I ever use this?”
This revision includes allimportant updates to applications and examples and more support for students. Beginning & Intermediate Algebra provides a comprehensive program that can work for any course format, from traditional lecturebased courses to fully online and distance learning.
