Summary

Tussy and Gustafson's fully integrated learning process is designed to expand students' reasoning abilities and teach them how to read, write, and think mathematically. In this text, students get a thorough review of arithmetic and geometry along with all the topics covered in a standard elementary algebra course. The authors build the strong mathematical foundation necessary to give students confidence to apply their newly acquired skills in further mathematics courses, at home, or on the job.
