Summary

This text is filled with tools to help you succeed in your math course. Here are some of the ways that Thomasson/Pesut, Experiencing Introductory & Intermediate Algebra Through Functions and Graphs, Third Edition can help you learn the material and pass the course: Objective Checkups At the end of each learning objective is a set of Checkup exercises. Try these Checkup exercises to make sure you understand the key concepts in each section-or as a warm-up to your homework assignment. The answers to all Checkups are given at the back of the text. Graphing Calculator Keystrokes In the Technology boxes and Calculator Exercises, you will find detailed graphing calculator keystrokes demonstrating how to access and use specific features of the calculator. This "built-in" graphing calculator instruction will familiarize you with how to best use your graphing calculator to learn the material. Chapter Review At the end of each chapter is an extensive set of tools to help you study for the test: a Vocabulary Review; Reflections, which question your knowledge of the major concepts in the chapter; a detailed Section-by-Section Review with examples and exercises; a second set of chapter review exercises called Mixed Review; and a practice Chapter Test accompanied by Test-Taking Tips. Review this "built-in" study guide to make sure you are fully prepared!
