Developed for students who want to improve their mathematical skills and knowledge on various algebraic concepts in preparation for more challenging courses, Elementary & Intermediate Algebra: Concepts and Applications is the ideal reference and study tool for those who like the ‘learn by example' approach. Authors Bittinger, Ellenbogen, and Johnson designed this series to help students through a seamless transition from skills-based to concepts-driven math, which is needed to get them through college level mathematics. The book supplies learners with highly effective exercises and applications that can help them better understand and retain key concepts. Some new features included in the latest edition include ‘Visualizing the Graph' and ‘Translating for Success' both of which encourage critical thinking. Elementary & Intermediate Algebra: Concepts and Applications (5th Edition) ISBN 9780321559449 includes key topics ranging from algebraic expressions to problem solving with the use of equations and inequalities, graphing, and polynomials. Factoring of trinomials and quadratic equations are also discussed, in addition to rational expressions, functions, radicals and exponents, and quadratic equations. Logarithmic and exponential functions are explained along with conic sections, the binomial theorem, sequences, and series. Authors Marvin Bittinger, David Ellenbogen, and Barbara Johnson made sure that the book retains the same pedagogical features as the previous editions, while updating learning aids and tools to cope with the changing needs of students. It ends with a review of the most important concepts learned. Tables for squares and square roots, and fraction and decimal equivalents are also discussed. There is a student solution's manual (which can be bought separately) for those who are interested in self-study; it allows learners to easily spot and correct their mistakes.
