The Bittinger Worktext Series recognizes that math hasn’t changed, but students–and the way they learn math–have. The new Bittinger All in One, Developmental Mathematics: Basic Math, Introductory Algebra, & Intermediate Algebra, offers everything needed to teach the full developmental math sequence in one flexible course solution.It continues the Bittinger tradition of objective-based, guided learning, while integrating timely updates to proven pedagogy. It has a greater emphasis on guided learning and helping students get the most out of all of the resources available, including new mobile learning resources, whether in a traditional lecture, hybrid, lab-based, or online course.

ALERT: Before you purchase, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. Several versions of Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products exist for each title, including customized versions for individual schools, and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a CourseID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products.



Access codes for Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products may not be included when purchasing or renting from companies other than Pearson; check with the seller before completing your purchase.


Used or rental books

If you rent or purchase a used book with an access code, the access code may have been redeemed previously and you may have to purchase a new access code.


Access codes

Access codes that are purchased from sellers other than Pearson carry a higher risk of being either the wrong ISBN or a previously redeemed code. Check with the seller prior to purchase.
