Summary

This package consists of the textbook plus an access kit for MyMathLab/MyStatLab. The Tobey/Slater/Blair/Crawford seriesbuilds essential skills one at a time by breaking the mathematics down into manageable pieces. This practical "building block" organization makes it easy for students to understand each topic and gain confidence as they move through each section. Students will find many opportunities to check and reinforce their understanding of concepts throughout the text and its MyMathLab course. With this revision, the author team has added a new Math Coach feature that provides students with an office hour experience by helping them to avoid commonly made mistakes. With Tobey/Slater/Blair/Crawford, students have a tutor, a study companion, and now a coach, with them every step of the way. MyMathLabprovides a wide range of homework, tutorial, and assessment tools that make it easy to manage your course online.
