Developmental Mathematics by Trigsted, Gallaher, and Bodden is the first online, completely “clickable” combined Basic Mathematics, Beginning Algebra, and Intermediate Algebra text to take full advantage of MyMathLab’s^{®} features and benefits. Kirk Trigsted saw marked improvements in student learning when he started teaching with MyMathLab, but he noticed that most students started their assignments by going directly to the MyMathLab homework exercises without consulting their textbook. This inspired Kirk to write a true eText, built within MyMathLab, to create a dynamic, seamless learning experience that would better meet the needs and expectations of his students. Completely clickable and fully integrated–the Trigsted eText is designed for today’s learners.
Developmental Mathematics is also available to be packaged with two printed resources to provide additional support for you:
This package contains the MyMathLab Student Access Kit plus the Guided Notebook.
