Designed to support first-year developmental math students taking an intermediate-level algebra course, this new text offers the hallmark features developed by the best-selling Larson team: abundant high-quality applications, the use of real data, the integration of visualization (many figures and graphs) throughout, and extensive opportunities for self-assessment. The authors' goal is for students to come away from the course with a firm understanding of algebra and how it functions as a modern modeling language. What You Should Learn orients students to each section by listing the main objectives. Why You Should Learn It provides a motivational explanation for learning the given objectives. What Did You Learn? following each chapter highlights key mathematical terms and concepts. For easy reference, Key Terms are correlated to the chapter by page number, while Key Concepts are correlated by section number. Integrated Review Exercises appear before section exercises in every section. They offer a review of skills, definitions, and problem solving from previous chapters. Eduspace, powered by Blackboard, for the Larson/Hostetler Algebra for College Students course features algorithmic exercises, test bank content in question pools, an online study guide, interactive tutorials for appropriate sections and video explanations.
