Bob Blitzer has developed a highly effective pre-calculus textbook that not only compels students to read, but encourages them to keep learning about the most basic to the most complex algebraic concepts and principles, preparing them for a more challenging study of mathematics in the future. College Algebra (5th Edition) is a combination of Blitzer's expertise in the behavioral sciences and mathematics and is one of the best pedagogical tools in the subject. The author utilizes practical examples and applications, and ends each chapter with exercises to give students more opportunities to practice their skills. College Algebra (5th Edition) ISBN 9780321559838 offers thorough discussions of the fundamentals of algebra, as well as basic concepts like algebraic expressions, real numbers and mathematical models, exponents, scientific notation, polynomials, radicals and rational exponents, and rational expressions. Equalities and inequalities are also discussed, as well as graphs and linear equations, complex numbers, and quadratic equations. Other chapters look into linear inequalities and absolute value inequalities, and other types of equations. Functions and graphs are explained, as well as linear functions and slope, combinations, and transformations of functions. The final chapters talk about polynomial and rational functions, quadratic functions, division of polynomials, and the zeros of polynomial functions. Each lesson features a ‘mid-chapter check point' in addition to a summary and review section, exercises, and some test questions and problems. Author Bob Blitzer is one of the most highly acclaimed authors of Algebra textbooks for college. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the City College of New York, majoring in psychology and mathematics. He has been teaching for the past 3 decades and has authored a long list of textbooks, including introductory books for algebra and intermediate algebra, as well as other titles like Thinking Mathematically, Algebra and Trigonometry, and many others.
