Summary

The fundamental goal in Tussy and Gustafson's BASIC MATHEMATICS FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS, Third Edition is to teach students to read, write, and think about mathematics through building a conceptual foundation in the language of mathematics. The book blends instructional approaches that include vocabulary, practice, and well-defined pedagogy, along with an emphasis on reasoning, modeling, communication, and technology skills. Also students planning to take an introductory algebra course in the future can use this text to build the mathematical foundation they will need. Tussy and Gustafson understand the challenges of teaching developmental students and this book reflects a holistic approach to teaching mathematics that includes developing study skills, problem solving, and critical thinking alongside mathematical concepts. New features in this edition include a pretest for students to gauge their understanding of prerequisite concepts, problems that make correlations between student life and the mathematical concepts, and study skills information designed to give students the best chance to succeed in the course. Additionally, the text's widely acclaimed Study Sets at the end of every section are tailored to improve students' ability to read, write, and communicate mathematical ideas.
