Summary

This text, written by best-selling developmental mathematics author Pat McKeague, features a more streamlined review of elementary algebra, allowing for earlier coverage of intermediate topics. An early introduction to graphing presents the foundation for a wide variety of graphing problems throughout the text. Early coverage of functions helps students feel comfortable with the many examples and graphs of functions that occur in later chapters. Optional technology sections are integrated throughout the text, as a way for students to better understand the material being discussed. INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA: CONCEPTS AND GRAPHS, 4/e is ideal for professors who want a condensed review of elementary algebra, and more time to spend on new topics. The new DIGITAL VIDEO COMPANION student CD-ROM, packaged with the text, offers an excellent tutorial featuring the author.
