Summary

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 The goal ofElementary and Intermediate Algebra: Concepts and Applications,4e is to help todayrs"s students learn and retain mathematical concepts by preparing them for the transition from "skills-oriented" elementary and intermediate algebra courses to more "concept-oriented" college-level mathematics courses, as well as to make the transition from "skill" to "application." This edition continues to bring your students a best-selling text that incorporates the five-step problem-solving process, real-world applications, proven pedagogy, and an accessible writing style. The Bittinger/Ellenbogen/Johnson series has consistently provided teachers and students with the tools needed to succeed in developmental mathematics. This revision has an even stronger focus on vocabulary and conceptual understanding as well as making the mathematics even more accessible to students. Among the features added are newConcept Reinforcementexercises, Student Notes that help students avoid common mistakes, and Study Summaries that highlight the most important concepts and terminology from each chapter. Introduction to Algebraic Expressions; Equations, Inequalities, and Problem Solving; Introduction to Graphing; Polynomials; Polynomials and Factoring; Rational Expressions and Equations; Functions and Graphs; Systems of Equations and Problem Solving; Inequalities and Problem Solving; Exponents and Radicals; Quadratic Functions and Equations; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Conic Sections; Sequences, Series, and The Binomial Theorem; Elementary Algebra Review For all readers interested in elementary and intermediate algebra.
