Summary

KEY BENEFIT:George Woodburyrs"s Algebra Seriesempowers students for success in college-level math courses through its early-and-often functions and graphing approach, integrated study strategies, and quality exercise sets that encourage true conceptual understanding. One of the ways George prepares his students for future mathematics courses is by introducing the fundamental algebraic concepts of functions and graphing early and then consistently incorporating these concepts throughout the text. Strong exercise sets that provide both volume and variety are critical to student success, so George has written extensive sets that incorporate not only a substantial amount of skill and drill, but also plenty of writing exercises that encourage critical thinking and creativity. The key to success for developmental students is often not just about the math: itrs"s about making sure that students understand how to study and prepare for a math class. To give students the confidence they require to succeed, George fully integrates study strategies throughout the text and also provides further guidance via an additionalStudy Skills Workbook, written specifically for his texts by Alan Bass. KEY TOPICS: Review of Real Numbers, Linear Equations, Graphing Linear Equations, Systems of Equations, Exponents and Polynomials, Factoring and Quadratic Equations, Rational Expressions and Equations, Radical Expressions and Equations, Quadratic Equations. MARKET: For all readers interested in algebra.

Author Biography

George Woodbury earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics from the University of California—Santa Barbara in 1990 and his master’s degree in mathematics from California State University—Northridge, in 1994. He currently teaches at College of the Sequoias in Visalia, CA–just outside of Fresno. He has been honored as an instructor by both his students and his colleagues. Aside from teaching and writing, George served as the department chair of the math/engineering division from 1999—2004. George’s Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, First Edition, was published in 2006.
