The Rockswold/Krieger algebra series fosters conceptual understanding by using relevant applications and visualization to show students why math matters. It answers the common question “When will I ever use this?” Rockswold teaches students the math in context, rather than including the applications at the end of the presentation. By seamlessly integrating meaningful applications that include real data and supporting visuals (graphs, tables, charts, colors, and diagrams), students are able to see how math impacts their lives as they learn the concepts. The authors use this approach to deepen conceptual understanding and better prepare students for future math courses and life.
The Conceptual MyMathLab Update
Users of Rockswold/Krieger’s Beginning and Intermediate Algebra with Applications & Visualization, Third Edition love the integration of applications and visualization to help students gain a greater conceptual understanding; however, they’ve requested more of this integration in the accompanying MyMathLab courses. As a result, we bring you a new Conceptual MyMathLab Update—the textbook is unchanged, but we’ve added these conceptually focused updates to the MyMathLab course:
- Increased MyMathLab Coverage with more Assignable Application Exercises and new Assignable Exercise Types tofoster conceptual understanding
- See the Concept Videos
- A Learning Path in the Ready to Go courses
For more details, check out the new to the edition page. With this updated MyMathLab course instructors will now be able to deliver a conceptually based program, with the textbook and MyMathLab course working hand-in-hand.
