Rockswold’s College Algebra with Integrated Review is a new co-requisite course solution, offering a complete college algebra MyMathLab® course with integrated review of select topics from intermediate  algebra. This course solution may be used in a co-requisite course model, or simply to help under-prepared students master prerequisite skills and concepts.


About College Algebra, Fifth Edition:

By connecting applications, modeling, and visualization, Gary Rockswold motivates students to learn mathematics in the context of their experiences. In order to both learn and retain the material, students must see a connection between the concepts and their real lives. In this new edition, connections are taken to a new level with “See the Concept” features, where students make important connections through detailed visualizations that deepen understanding.


Gary Rockswold is also known for presenting the concept of a function as a unifying theme, with an emphasis on the rule of four (verbal, graphical, numerical, and symbolic representations). A flexible approach allows instructors to strike their own balance of skills, rule of four, applications, modeling, and technology.


This package consists of the textbook, MyMathLab access kit, and Integrated Review worksheets.
