-- The **Sullivan/Struve/Mazzarella Algebra** **program** is designed to motivate students to “do the math”— at home or in the lab—and supports a variety of learning environments. The text is known for its two-column example format that provides annotations to the left of the algebra. These annotations explain what the authors are about to do in each step (instead of what was just done), just as an instructor would do.

This package consists of the text, MyMathLab access card, and Video Notebook.

### Author Biography

**Michael Sullivan, III** is a full-time professor of mathematics at Joliet Jr. College. His training is in mathematics, statistics, and economics and he has more than 18 years experience as an instructor. His publications with Pearson cover developmental math, precalculus, and introductory statistics. Most recently, Mike has been highly involved in Course Redesign at Joliet Junior College. His experience in course redesign and writing texts for the college-level math and statistics courses gives him a unique insight into where students are headed after the developmental math track, and what they need to do to be successful. Mike is the father of three children and an avid golfer.

**Katherine Struve **is a full-time instructor with Columbus State Community College and has more than 30 years experience in the classroom. She is in tune with the challenges of teaching mathematics at a large, urban community college. She has served as the Lead Instructor of Developmental Mathematics and has been involved in the recent course redesign effort at Columbus State.

**Janet Mazzarella**is a full-time instructor at Southwestern College and has more than 18 years experience teaching a wide range of courses from arithmetic through calculus. She helped develop the self-paced developmental math program and spent two years serving as its director. Along with Mike and Kathy, Janet has also been active in the course redesign initiative at her institution.
