This book's objective is to make learning mathematics easier. Its easy-to-follow writing style and its balanced approach between mathematical theory and real-world applications allow the user to progress step-by-step; concepts are presented and then built upon, strengthening understanding and providing solid support for learning new concepts. Using color graphics, illustrations, examples, and application problems, topics covered in this easy-to-follow book are linear equations and inequalities; factors and fractions; exponents and radicals; functions and graphs; quadratic equations; systems of equations; higher degree equations; exponential and logarithmic functions; right angle trigonometry; vectors and oblique triangles; graphs; complex numbers; analytic geometry; introduction to statistics and empirical curve fitting; sequences, series, and the binomial theorem; differentiation with applications; integration with applications; derivations of transcendental functions; and differential equations. For workers in technical fields needing to brush up on their mathematic skills.
Providing a 'functions-based' approach, this title explains the fundamentals of college algebra and trigonometry for those studying calculus or quantitative methods courses, or for students continuing on to the traditional calculus sequence.
Julie Miller wrote her developmental math series because students were coming into her Precalculus course underprepared. They weren’t mathematically mature enough to understand the concepts of math nor were they fully engaged with the material. She began her developmental mathematics offerings with intermediate algebra to help bridge that gap. The Precalculus series is a carefully constructed end to that bridge that uses the highly effective pedagogical features from her fastest growing developmental math series. What sets Julie Miller’s series apart is that it addresses course issues through an author-created digital package that maintains a consistent voice and notation throughout the program. This consistency--in videos, PowerPoints, Lecture Notes, and Group Activities--coupled with the power of ALEKS and Connect Hosted by ALEKS, ensures that students master the skills necessary to be successful in Precalculus and can carry them through to the calculus sequence.
This market-leading text continues to provide students and instructors with sound, consistently structured explanations of the mathematical concepts. Designed for a two-term course, the new Eighth Edition retains the features that have made Algebra and Trigonometry a complete solution for both students and instructors: interesting applications, cutting-edge design, and innovative technology combined with an abundance of carefully written exercises. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
College Algebra: Graphs and Models, 2/e covers college-level algebra and is appropriate for a one-term, graphing calculator required, college algebra course. A course in intermediate algebra is a prerequisite for the text, although Chapter R provides sufficient review to unify the diverse backgrounds of most students. The approach of this text is more interactive than most precalculus texts and the goal of the author team is to enhance the learning process through the use of technology and to provide as much support and help for students as possible.
COLLEGE ALGEBRA AND CALCULUS: AN APPLIED APPROACH, Second Edition provides your students a comprehensive resource for their college algebra and applied calculus courses. The mathematical concepts and applications are consistently presented in the same tone and pedagogy to promote confidence and a smooth transition from one course to the next. The consolidation of content for two courses in a single text saves you time in your course--and saves your students the cost of an extra textbook.

With a visual, graphical approach that emphasizes connections among concepts, this text helps readers make the most of their study time. The authors show how different mathematical ideas are tied together through their zeros, solutions, and "x"-intercepts theme; side-by-side algebraic and graphical solutions; calculator screens; and examples and exercises. By continually reinforcing the connections among various mathematical concepts as well as different solution methods, the authors lead readers to the ultimate goal of mastery and success. Basic Concepts of Algebra. Graphs, Functions, and Models. Functions, Equations, and Inequalities. Polynomial and Rational Functions. Exponential and Logarithmic Functions. Systems of Equations and Matrices. Conic Sections. Sequences, Series, and Combinatorics. For all readers interested in college algebra.
Larson's ALGEBRA AND TRIGONOMETRY is ideal for a two-term course and known for delivering sound, consistently structured explanations and carefully written exercises of the mathematical concepts. With the Tenth Edition, the author continues to revolutionize the way students learn material by incorporating more real-world applications, ongoing review and innovative technology. How Do You See It? exercises give students practice applying the concepts, and new Summarize features, and Checkpoint problems reinforce understanding of the skill sets to help students better prepare for tests. Stepped-out solution videos with instruction are available at CalcView.com for selected exercises throughout the text, and the companion website at LarsonPrecalculus.com offers free access to many additional tools and resources to supplement students’ learning.

ALGEBRA AND TRIGONOMETRY: REAL MATHEMATICS, REAL PEOPLE, 6th Edition, is an ideal student and instructor resource for courses that require the use of a graphing calculator. The quality and quantity of the exercises, combined with interesting applications and innovative resources, make teaching easier and help students succeed. Retaining the series' emphasis on student support, selected examples throughout the text include notations directing students to previous sections to review concepts and skills needed to master the material at hand. The book also achieves accessibility through careful writing and design--including examples with detailed solutions that begin and end on the same page, which maximizes readability. Similarly, side-by-side solutions show algebraic, graphical, and numerical representations of the mathematics and support a variety of learning styles. Reflecting its new subtitle, this significant revision focuses more than ever on showing students the relevance of mathematics in their lives and future careers.

Applied College Algebra is designed to provide students with a solid mathematical foundation enhanced by motivating and relevant applications. The interactive presentation of concepts supports students with a variety of learning styles and provides a comfortable transition to more advanced mathematics for all students, especially those coming from developmental courses. Chapter Prep Quizzes at the start of each chapter help students assess their prerequisite knowledge. Each question includes a section reference that students can use to get additional support and view related examples. Problem Solving Strategies to guide students in developing problem-solving skills appear at the start of each chapter. Clear Examples paired with Check Your Progress Questions are hallmark features of the Aufmann Interactive Method. After a worked-out example is presented, a similar Check Your Progress exercise helps students practice the concept. Full Solutions to Check Your Progress Questions appear in an appendix. The complete solution not only provides students full support in understanding new material, but serves as an additional example to students reviewing material for a test or quiz.
