Summary

Beginning Algebra, 7/eby Baratto/Bergman is part of the latest offerings in the successful Streeter-Hutchison Series in Mathematics. The seventh edition continues the hallmark approach of encouraging the learning of mathematics by focusing its coverage onmastering math through practice. This worktext seeks to provide carefully detailed explanations and accessible pedagogy to introduce basic algebra skills and put thecontent in context. The authors use a three-pronged approach (I. Communication, II. Pattern Recognition, and III. Problem Solving) to present the material and stimulate critical thinking skills. Items such asMath Anxietyboxes,Check Yourselfexercises, andActivitiesrepresent this approach and the underlying philosophy of mastering math through practice. The exercise sets have been expanded, organized, and clearly labeled. Vocational and professional-technical exercises have been added throughout. Repeated exposure to this consistent structure should help advance the student's skills in relating to mathematics. The book is designed for a one-semester beginning algebra course and is appropriate for lecture, learning center, laboratory, or self-paced courses. It is accompanied by numerous useful supplements, including McGraw-Hill's online homework management system, MathZone.
