Normal 0 false false false KEY BENEFIT: TheBittinger serieschanged the face of developmental education with the introduction of objective-based worktexts that presented math one concept at a time. This approach allowed students to understand the rationale behind each concept before practicing the associated skills and then moving on to the next topic. With this revision, Marv Bittinger continues to focus on building success through conceptual understanding, while also supporting students with quality applications, exercises, and new review and study materials to help students apply and retain their knowledge. KEY TOPICS: Whole Numbers; Fraction Notation: Multiplication and Division; Fraction Notation and Mixed Numerals; Decimal Notation; Ratio and Proportion; Percent Notation; Data, Graphs, and Statistics; Measurement; Geometry; Real Numbers; Algebra: Solving Equations and Problems MARKET: For all readers interested in basic college mathematics.

Author Biography

Marvin Bittinger has been teaching math at the university level for more than thirty-eight years. Since 1968, he has been employed at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis, and is now professor emeritus of mathematics education. Professor Bittinger has authored over 190 publications on topics ranging from basic mathematics to algebra and trigonometry to applied calculus. He received his BA in mathematics from Manchester College and his PhD in mathematics education from Purdue University. Special honors include Distinguished Visiting Professor at the United States Air Force Academy and his election to the Manchester College Board of Trustees from 1992 to 1999. Professor Bittinger has also had the privilege of speaking at many mathematics conventions, most recently giving a lecture entitled "Baseball and Mathematics." His hobbies include hiking in Utah, baseball, golf, and bowling. In addition, he also has an interest in philosophy and theology, in particular, apologetics.
