Designed for first-year developmental math students who need support in beginning algebra,Elementary Algebraowes its success to the hallmark features for which the Larson team is known: learning by example, accessible writing style, emphasis on visualization, and comprehensive exercise sets. These pedagogical features are carefully coordinated to ensure that students are better able to make connections between mathematical concepts and understand the content. The newStudent Support Editioncontinues the Larson tradition of guided learning by incorporating a comprehensive range of student success materials throughout the text. Additionally, instructors and students alike can track progress with HM Assess, a new online diagnostic assessment and remediation tool from Houghton Mifflin. New!An extensive student support section,Your Guide to Success in Algebra,contains all the tools the student needs to succeed in the course.Your Guide to Academic Successincludes a review of math study skills, learning styles, test-taking strategies, time management tips, unique study strategies, course progress tracker, and comprehensive guides to using the textbook and study aids effectively.Your Guide to the Chaptersincludes progress trackers that outline each chapter's topics and learning objectives, along with a checklist of all the study aids available for that chapter. New!Removable Study Cardsprovide students with convenient access to common formulas, algebraic properties, conversions, geometric formula study sheets, and more. These study cards enable students to refresh their knowledge quickly anytime, anywhere. New!HM Testing (Powered by Diploma)provides instructors with wide array of algorithmic test items, and improved functionality and ease of use, including the ability to author and edit algorithmic questions. New!EduspaceHoughton Mifflin's Online Learning Tool (powered by Blackboard), now includesenhanced algorithmic exerciseswhich are supported by anew math symbol palettefor inputtingfree-response answersand are closely correlated to the end of section/chapter exercises. It also includesHM Assess,a new online diagnostic assessment and remediation program that tests the student's understanding of core concepts and developsindividual study paths for self-remediation.
