Summary

Gary Rockswold focuses on teaching algebra in context, answering the question, "Why am I learning this?" and ultimately motivating the students to succeed in this class. In addition, the author's understanding of what instructors need from a text (great 'real'examples and lots of exercises) makes this book fun and easy to teach from. Integrating this textbook into your course will be a worthwhile endeavor.
