Summary

Developmental mathematics is the gateway to success in academics and in life.George Woodburystrives to provide his students with a complete learning package that empowers them for success in developmental mathematics and beyond. The Woodbury suite consists of a combined text written from the ground up to minimize overlap between elementary and intermediate algebra, a new workbook that helps students make connections between skills and concepts, and a robust set of MyMathLab resources. Note: this item is for the textbook only; supplements are available separately.

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 through 2004.
