Intermediate Algebra offers a practical approach to the study of intermediate algebra concepts, consistent with the needs of today's student. The authors help students to develop a solid understanding of functions by revisiting key topics related to functions throughout the text. They put special emphasis on the worked examples in each section, treating them as the primary means of instruction, since students rely so heavily on examples to complete assignments. The applications (both within the examples and exercises) are also uniquely designed so that students have an experience that is more true to life--students must read information as it appears in headline news sources and extract only the relevant information needed to solve a stated problem. The unique pedagogy in the text focuses on promoting better study habits and critical thinking skills along with orienting students to think and reason mathematically. Through Intermediate Algebra, students will not only be better prepared for future math courses, they will be better prepared to solve problems and answer questions they encounter in their own lives.

Kaseberg/Cripe/Wildman's respected INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA is known for an informal, interactive style that makes algebra more accessible to students while maintaining a high level of mathematical accuracy. This new edition introduces two new co-authors, Greg Cripe and Peter Wildman. The three authors have created a new textbook that introduces new pedagogy to teach students how to be better prepared to succeed in math and then life by strengthening their ability to solve critical-thinking problems. This text's popularity is attributable to the author's use of guided discovery, explorations, and problem solving, all of which help students learn new concepts and strengthen their skill retention.

As in previous editions, the focus in INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA remains on the Aufmann Interactive Method (AIM). Students are encouraged to be active participants in the classroom and in their own studies as they work through the How To examples and the paired Examples and You Try It problems. Student engagement is crucial to success. Presenting students with worked examples, and then providing them with the opportunity to immediately solve similar problems, helps them build their confidence and eventually master the concepts. Simplicity is key in the organization of this edition, as in all other editions. All lessons, exercise sets, tests, and supplements are organized around a carefully constructed hierarchy of objectives. Each exercise mirrors a preceding objective, which helps to reinforce key concepts and promote skill building. This clear, objective-based approach allows students to organize their thoughts around the content, and supports instructors as they work to design syllabi, lesson plans, and other administrative documents. New features like Focus on Success, Apply the Concept, and Concept Check add an increased emphasis on study skills and conceptual understanding to strengthen the foundation of student success. The Ninth Edition also features a new design, enhancing the Aufmann Interactive Method and making the pages easier for both students and instructors to follow.

The main focus of ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5e, is to address the fundamental needs of today's developmental math students. Offering a uniquely modern, balanced program, ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5e, integrates conceptual understanding with traditional skill and practice reinforced through visual and interactive practice in Enhanced WebAssign, available exclusively from Cengage Learning. By helping students understand the language of algebra and the why behind problem solving through instructional approaches and worked examples, they are better equipped to succeed at the how. Practice is essential in making these connections and it is emphasized in ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5e, with additional practice problems both in the text and Enhanced WebAssign. Give your students confidence by showing them how Algebra is not just about the x it's also about the WHY.

â€œEmpower your Students for Successâ€ George Woodbury's Algebra Seriesempowers students for future success in college-level math courses through its early-and-often approach to functions and graphing, integrated study strategies, and quality exercise sets that encourage true conceptual understanding. The early-and-often approach to functionshelps students prepare for future math courses. A Study Skill Strategyis introduced in each chapter opener and then expanded upon throughout the chapter in the Building Your Study Strategyboxes that appear before each exercise set. Students can further develop their study skills with the Study Skills Workbook, written by Alan Bass, to accompany the Woodbury texts. Vocabulary Exercisesbegin each section of exercises and check student understanding of the basic vocabulary presented in the preceding section.

This resource has been developed to provide additional support for delivering and supporting ICT at GCSE. Linked to Key Maths, it can be also be used together with other resources. Each program contains a range of self-contained activities that do not require a detailed understanding of the software.

Think of it as portable office hours! The Interactive Video Skillbuilder CD-ROM contains more than eight hours of video instruction. The problems worked during each video lesson are shown next to the viewing screen so that student can try working them before watching the solution. To help students evaluate their progress, each section contains a 10-question Web quiz (the results of which can be emailed to the instructor) and each chapter contains a chapter test, with answers to each problem on each test. Also includes MathCue Tutorial software. This dual-platform software presents and scores problems and tutor students by displaying annotated, step-by-step solutions. Problem sets may be customized as desired.

BEGINNING AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA: CONNECTING CONCEPTS THROUGH APPLICATIONS, shows students how to apply traditional mathematical skills in real-world contexts. The emphasis on skill building and applications engages students as they master algebraic concepts, problem solving, and communication skills. Students develop sound mathematical skills by learning how to solve problems generated from realistic applications, instead of learning techniques without conceptual understanding. Authors Mark Clark and Cynthia Anfinson have developed several key ideas to make concepts real and vivid for students. First, the authors place an emphasis on developing strong algebra skills that support the applications, enhancing student comprehension and developing their problem solving abilities. Second, applications are integrated throughout, drawing on realistic and numerically appropriate data to show students how to apply math and to understand why they need to know it. These applications require students to think critically and develop the skills needed to explain and think about the meaning of their answers. Third, important concepts are developed as students progress through the course and overlapping elementary and intermediate content in kept to a minimum. Chapter 8 sets the stage for the intermediate material where students explore the eyeball best-fit approach to modeling and understand the importance of graphs and graphing including graphing by hand. Fourth, Mark and Cynthia's approach prepares students for a range of courses including college algebra and statistics. In short, BEGINNING AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA: CONNECTING CONCEPTS THROUGH APPLICATIONS develops strong mathematical skills using an engaging, application-driven and problem solving-focused approach to algebra.
