Key Message: The Third Edition of the BittingerGraphs and Modelsseries helps readers succeed in algebra by emphasizing a visual understanding of concepts. This latest edition incorporates a new Visualizing for Success feature that helps readers make intuitive connections between graphs and functions without the aid of a graphing calculator. In addition, readers learn problem-solving skills from the Bittinger hallmark five-step problem-solving processcoupled with Connecting the Concepts and Aha! Exercises. As you have come to expect with any Bittinger text, we bring you a complete supplements package including MyMathLabtrade; and the New Instructor and Adjunct Support Manual. Key Topics: Introduction to Algebraic Expressions; Equations, Inequalities, and Problem Solving; Introduction to Graphing and Functions; Systems and Graphing; Polynomials; Polynomial Factorizations and Equations; Rational Expressions, Equations, and Functions; Inequalities; More on Systems; Exponents and Radical Functions; Quadratic Functions and Equations; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Conic Sections; Sequences, Series, and the Binomial Theorem; Elementary Algebra Review Market: For all readers interested in Algebra.
