## Author Biography

An award-winning instructor and best-selling author, Elayn Martin-Gay has taught mathematics at the University of New Orleans for more than 25 years. Her numerous teaching awards include the local University Alumni Association’s Award for *Excellence in Teaching*, and *Outstanding Developmental Educator* at University of New Orleans, presented by the Louisiana Association of Developmental Educators.

Prior to writing textbooks, Elayn developed an acclaimed series of lecture videos to support developmental mathematics students in their quest for success. These highly successful videos originally served as the foundation material for her texts. Today, the videos are specific to each book in the Martin-Gay series. Elayn also pioneered the **Chapter Test Prep Video** to help students as they prepare for a test–their most “teachable moment!”

Elayn’s experience has made her aware of how busy instructors are and what a difference quality support makes. For this reason, she created the **Instructor-to-Instructor** video series. These videos provide instructors with suggestions for presenting specific math topics and concepts in basic mathematics, Prealgebra, beginning algebra, and intermediate algebra. Seasoned instructors can use them as a source for alternate approaches in the classroom. New or adjunct faculty may find the CDs useful for review.

Her textbooks and acclaimed video program support Elayn's passion of helping **every** student to succeed.
