Visualize. Interact. Succeed.

Beecher, Penna, and Bittinger’s College Algebra is known for enabling students to “see the math” through its focus on visualization and early introduction to functions. With the Fifth Edition, the authors continue to innovate by creating and positioning review material to provide a more effective tool for teachers and students.

 

25 Just-In-Time review topics are placed throughout the text and MyMathLab to help students right when they need it most. This, along with the existing Mid-chapter Mixed Review exercises, Study Guide summaries, and the new MyMathLab with Integrated Review course, students have an unparalleled amount of review resources to help them be successful in the course.

 

Personalize learning with MyMathLab

MyMathLab 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. With this edition, the authors focused on developing MyMathLab features that help better prepare students and get them thinking more visually and conceptually.
