## Overview

**Is there anything more beautiful than an “A” in Algebra?** Not to the Lial team! Marge Lial, John Hornsby, and Terry McGinnis write their textbooks and accompanying resources with one goal in mind: giving students and teachers all the tools they need to achieve success. With this revision of the Lial Developmental Algebra Series, the team has further refined the presentation and exercises throughout the text. They offer several exciting new resources for students and teachers that will provide extra help when needed, regardless of the learning environment (traditional, lab-based, hybrid, online)–new study skills activities in the text, and more.
