Elayn Martin-Gay's success as a developmental math author starts with a strong focus on mastering the basics through well-written explanations, innovative pedagogy and a meaningful, integrated program of learning resources. The revisions to this edition provide new pedagogy and resources to build reader confidence and help readers develop basic skills and understand concepts. Features incorporation of AMATYC and NCTM standards-reflected in an increased emphasis on visualization graphing, and data analysis. In addition, Martin-Gay's 4-step problem solving process-Understand, Translate, Solve and Interpret-is integrated throughout. Also includes new features such as Study Skills Reminders, "Integrated Reviews", and "Concept Checks." For those in need of a graphing utility resource in intermediate algebra, and for readers who need to prepare for advanced algebra or finite math.
