### Summary

Geared toward helping students visualize and apply mathematics, Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Graphs and Models, Second Edition is designed for a two-semester course. The authors make use of illustrations, graphs, and graphing technology to enhance students' mathematical skills. This is accomplished through Interactive Discoveries, Algebraic-Graphical Side-by-Sides, and the incorporation of real-data applications. In addition, students are taught problem-solving skills using the Bittinger hallmark five-step problem-solving process coupled with new Connecting the Concepts and Aha! exercises. And, as you have come to expect with any Bittinger text, we bring you a complete supplements package that now includes an Annotated Instructor's Edition and MyMathLab, Addison-Wesley's on-line course solution.
