Gets them engaged. Keeps them engaged. 

Bob Blitzer’s  Developmental Algebra Series  shows developmental students at all levels how math applies to their daily lives and culture. Blitzer’s use of realistic, interesting applications instantly piques students’ curiosity about mathematical concepts in the world around them. These applications are apparent throughout the entire program – from his student-friendly examples, unique writing style, and thought-provoking features to the digital resources in the MyLab Math course. 


In this revision Blitzer updates his hallmark applications, pulling from topics that are relevant to college students – often from pop culture, the news, and everyday life – to ensure that they will actually use their learning resources to achieve success.

Personalize learning with MyLab Math

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab Math personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.
