Intermediate Algebra with Applications and Visualization, Second Edition, offers an innovative approach to the intermediate algebra curriculum that allows students to gain both skills and understanding. This text not only prepares students for future mathematics courses, but it also demonstrates to students the relevance of mathematics. The early introduction of functions and graphs allows the instructor to use applications and visualization to present mathematical topics. Real data, graphs, and tables play an important role in the course, giving meaning to the numbers and equations that students encounter. This approach increases student interest, motivation, and the likelihood for success. Many students think in visual, concrete terms and not abstractly. This text helps students learn mathematics better by moving from the concrete to the abstract. It makes use of the Rule of Four (verbal, graphical, numerical, and symbolic), applications, visualization, and technology.
