Alice Kaseberg's respected Intermediate Algebra: Everyday Explorations, Fourth Edition, helps students build confidence in algebra. This text's popularity is attributable to the author's use of guided discovery, explorations, and problem solving, all of which help students learn new concepts and strengthen their skill retention. Known for an informal, interactive style that makes algebra more accessible to students while maintaining a high level of mathematical accuracy, Intermediate Algebra includes a host of teaching and learning tools that work together for maximum flexibility and a high student success rate. With the Fourth Edition, instructors have access to an Instructor's Annotated Edition that provides additional examples, as well as a robust Instructor's Resource Manual, algorithmic computerized testing, and an extensive online homework system.
