This straightforward presentation of intermediate algebra emphasizes skills, concepts, and their applications. The authors pay particular attention to reducing math anxiety, promoting good study habits, and showing the connection between mathematics and everyday life. The text takes into account teaching/learning by objective, teaching/learning by application, the importance of vocabulary, and the relationship between skills, concepts, and problem solving. Students are challenged according to their individual levels of learning. The worktext format is ideal for self-paced, lab settings and can easily be used in lecture classes as well. Features: * Nationally acclaimed, class-proven pedagogy enhances the thorough, detailed topic coverage. Clearly stated Objectivas are followed by an Application, vocabulary, How and Why explanations, Examples anf Warm Up problems, section exercises, a Chapter Concept Review, and Chapter Test. * "How and Why" Segments explainand demonstrate concepts and skills and are numbered to correspond to the objectives. Throughout these segments, skill boxes identify and outline skills in step-by-step form and concept boxes highlight important properties, formulas, and theory. * Section exercises are paired so that odd-numbered exercises are equivalent in style and diffuculty to the consecutive even-numbered exercise. Because answers to the odd-numbered exercises are at the back of the text, students can use them for practice and instructors can assign the even numbered exercises for homework. * Section exercises are organized in categories to provide practice developing estimation/mental, pencil and paper, application, communication, and calculator skills as well as opportunities for group work. * Application exercises demonstrate professional and daily life uses of mathematics and cover a wide range of fields including business, health,the environment, consumer math, and science. * "Maintain Your Skills" exercises continually reinforce previously learned skills and concepts. * End-of-chapter exercises comprise Concept Review and Test exercises. Concept Review questions help students evaluate their understanding of concepts and gain experience with math vocabulary. The "Chapter Test" covers all chapter content and help students access their mastery of skills. New to this edition: * The power and convenience of graphing calculators are introduced throughout. This optional material offers instructors the opportunity to work graphing calculators into their course.
