What is included with this book?
MyMathLab, used by more than 6 million math students, provides a wide range of homework, tutorial, and assessment tools that make it easy to manage your course online. This is the product access code card for MyMathLab and does not include the actual bound book, but does include the eBook.
Kirk Trigsted revolutionized the way this course is taught when he created College Algebra, a completely clickable eText that was written from the ground up within MyMathLab^{®}. Recognizing that today’s students start with the homework instead of reading the text, Trigsted created an online learning environment that is a seamless mix of exposition, videos, interactive animations, tutorials, and assessment. This approach leverages the power of MyMathLab and leads students to interact with course materials in a way that is proving to be more effective.
With this new edition, Trigsted continues to innovate with a revised design with improved navigation and usability, expanded videos, and increased animation coverage. As with the prior edition, all multimedia elements, exercises, feedback, and content are written by the author himself, so that the students have a consistent voice throughout the eText.
ALERT: Before you purchase, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. Several versions of Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products exist for each title, including customized versions for individual schools, and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a CourseID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products.
Packages
Access codes for Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products may not be included when purchasing or renting from companies other than Pearson; check with the seller before completing your purchase.
Used or rental books
If you rent or purchase a used book with an access code, the access code may have been redeemed previously and you may have to purchase a new access code.
Access codes
Access codes that are purchased from sellers other than Pearson carry a higher risk of being either the wrong ISBN or a previously redeemed code. Check with the seller prior to purchase.
