Kirk Trigsted’s College Algebra with Integrated Review is a new co-requisite course solution, offering a complete college algebra MyMathLab® course with integrated review of select topics from developmental algebra. This course solution may be used in a co-requisite course model, or simply to help under-prepared students master prerequisite skills and concepts.
About College Algebra, Third Edition:
Kirk Trigsted revolutionized the way this course is taught when he created College Algebra, a completely clickable eText that was written from the ground up within MyMathLab®. Recognizing that today’s students start with the homework instead of reading the text, Trigsted created an online learning environment that is a seamless mix of exposition, videos, interactive animations, tutorials, and assessment. This approach leverages the power of MyMathLab and leads students to interact with course materials in a way that is proving to be more effective.
With College Algebra, Third Edition, Trigsted continues to innovate with a revised design with improved navigation and usability, expanded videos, and increased animation coverage. As with the prior edition, all multimedia elements, exercises, feedback, and content are written by the author himself, so that the students have a consistent voice throughout the eText.
This product is part of the following series. Click on a series title to see the full list of products in the series.
How the co-requisite MyMathLab® course works:
- Students begin a College Algebra chapter by completing a Skills Check assignment to pinpoint which developmental topics, if any, they need to review.
- Students who demonstrate mastery of the review topics will move straight into the College Algebra content.
- Those who require additional review proceed to a personalized review homework assignment that allows them to remediate on the specific topics where they need help. These students will also have access to additional review materials (worksheets, videos, and more) via the “Integrated Review” section at the start of each chapter in MyMathLab. After achieving mastery on the homework assignments, they can proceed to the college-level College Algebra content.
About Trigsted’s College Algebra, Third Edition:
- The Trigsted eText is designed for the way students think and behave online. Interactive multimedia elements are strategically placed throughout the exposition, so that each concept is taught in the most effective way. To ensure a consistent voice throughout, the author created the videos himself and scripted all animations, exercises, and other multimedia elements.
- Special design considerations take into account that this eText was meant to be read and used entirely online. The eText is formatted to fit the screen without scrolling, and a cream-colored background enhances readability. Careful attention to detail throughout improves the reader experience.
- Review links throughout the text provide just-in-time information in a way that does not distract from the concept at hand. Hyperlinks allow students to test their prerequisite skills and get immediate feedback, review vocabulary definitions, use multimedia learning aids, and refresh their understanding of prior sections when needed.
- Interactive animations require student participation, reflecting the author’s belief that students should not be idle when viewing media, especially when it presents key concepts. All animations were scripted by the author to ensure a consistent voice.
- Videos and Interactive Videos show the author on screen teaching important examples, concepts and procedures, making the text a more engaging and effective learning experience. Interactive videos periodically prompt students to make decisions during the solution process, engaging them in active learning.
- My Task List is a learning framework to help students organize their time and study efficiently. When students click to “Start Homework” in the Trigsted MyMathLab® course, students see a four-step learning process: (1) read the eText; (2) complete the assignable Reading Assessment Questions; and (3) complete the homework exercises.
- The exercises are designed to help students make the most of their time spent on homework, and take advantage of the digital environment to increase conceptual understanding.
- Reading Assessment Questions allow instructors to encourage students to read the eText by assigning conceptual and vocabulary questions. Students receive customized feedback on incorrect answers that include links back to the eText for easy reference.
- NEW! Skill Check exercises help students make algebra connections when working within exercises that present new concepts. These appear at the beginning of the exercise set and are assignable in MyMathLab.
- Step-By-Step Exercises require students to demonstrate their ability to solve more complex problems. Rather than asking the question in a way that allows them to plug an equation into a calculator, these new exercises break into multiple conceptual questions, so students need to think carefully and step through the problem-solving process. These problems are identified by an icon in the Homework and Test manager.
- Brief Exercises are designed to test one concept in a multi-step problem to give students extra practice on the specific skills needed for more complex problems. These problems are identified by an icon in the Homework and Test Manager.
- Instructor and Student support resources are available to accompany the Trigsted eText:
- The eText Reference is a spiral-bound, printed version of the eText that provides a place for students to do practice work and summarize key concepts from the online videos and animations. In addition to the benefits it provides students, the eText Reference also provides portability for those instructors who prefer a printed text for class preparation. Answers to the end-of-section exercises are also included.
- The Guided Notebook is an interactive workbook that guides students through the course by asking them to write down key definitions and work through important examples for each section of the eText. This resource is available in a three-hole-punched, unbound format to provide the foundation for a personalized course notebook. Students can integrate their class notes and homework notes within the appropriate section of the Guided Notebook. Instructors can customize the Guided Notebook files found within MyMathLab.
- PowerPoint® slides provide an outline to use in a lecture setting, presenting definitions and key examples from the text.
- TestGen® (www.pearsoned.com/testgen) software enables instructors to build, edit, print, and administer tests using a computerized bank of questions developed to cover all the objectives of the text.
Updates to the MyMathLab® Course
- NEW! Getting Ready skill review quizzes are assignable throughout the course, testing students on prerequisite knowledge. Each student receives a personalized homework assignment to refresh forgotten concepts, based on quiz results.
- NEW! Adaptive Study Plan makes studying more efficient and effective for every student. Performance and activity are assessed continually in real time. Data and analytics are used to provide personalized content-- reinforcing concepts that target each student's strengths and weaknesses.
- NEW! Skills for Success Modules support students toward continued success in college. This module provides tutorials and guidance on topics such as transitioning to college, online learning, time management and more. Additionally, there is content to help students develop professional skills such as resume development and interview preparation.
- NEW! Graphing Functionality allows students to graph 3-point cubic, 4-point quadratic and transformation graphs within MyMathLab exercises.
- NEW! Skill Check Exercises help student make algebra connections when working with exercises that present new concepts. These appear at the beginning of the exercises set and are assignable in MyMathLab.
