The Sullivan/Struve/Mazzarella Algebra Series was written to motivate students to do the math outside of the classroom through a design and organization that models what you do inside the classroom. The left-to-right annotations in the examples provide a teachers voice through every step of the problem-solving process.

The Sullivan exercise sets, which begin with Quick Checks to reinforce each example, present problem types of every possible derivation with a gradual increase in difficulty level. The “Do the MathWorkbook acts as a companion to the text and to MyMathLab by providing short warm-up exercises, guided practice examples, and additional Do the Math practice exercises for every section of the text.

Sullivan Examples and Showcase Examples provide students with superior guidance and instruction when they need it most–when they are away from the instructor and the classroom. Students learn algebra by doing algebra. Throughout the textbook, the exercise sets are grouped into eight categories–some of which appear only as needed. Study Skills features are a regular theme throughout the book, anticipating students’ needs and providing the voice of an instructor.
