## Summary

TheSullivan/Struve/Mazzarella AlgebraSerieswas written to motivate students to "do the math" outside of the classroom through a design and organization that models what you do inside the classroom. The left-to-right annotations in the examples provide a teacherrs"s voice through every step of the problem-solving process. The Sullivan exercise sets, which begin with Quick Checks to reinforce each example, present problem types of every possible derivation with a gradual increase in difficulty level. The new "Do the Math" Workbook acts as a companion to the text and to MyMathLab reg; by providing short warm-up exercises, guided practice examples, and additional "Do the Math" practice exercises for every section of the text. Operations on Real Numbers and Algebraic Expressions; Equations and Inequalities in One Variable; Introduction to Graphing and Equations of Lines; Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities; Exponents and Polynomials; Factoring Polynomials; Rational Expressions and Equations; Roots and Radicals; Quadratic Equations; Graphs of Quadratic Equations in Two Variables and an Introduction to Functions For all readers interested in beginning algebra.
