Summary

Understanding Algebra

 

Through many successful editions, the Angel team has developed a text that students can read, understand, and enjoy. They’ve done this by pairing clear explanations (in short sentences!) with detailed examples and thorough exercise sets.

 

This program provides a better teaching and learning experience for you and your students. Here’s how:

  • MyMathLab® improves results with a new video lecture series and a new downloadable Student Workbook that can be packaged with the text and/or the MyMathLab code.
  • Carefully crafted exercise sets give students the practice they need to build understanding.
  • Clear, visual presentation gives students content in a readable, easy-to-understand format.

 

Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MyMathLab does not come packaged with this content. MyMathLab is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor. If you would like to purchase both the physical text and MyMathLab, search for:
