A BETTER WAY TO COLLEGE ALGEBRA X-PERTISE

One of the most valuable tools acquired in a university education, college algebra is essential for courses from the sciences to computing, engineering to mathematics. It can help you do better on placement exams, even before college, and it's useful in solving the computations of daily life. Now anyone with an interest in college algebra can master it. In College Algebra Demystified, entertaining author and experienced teacher Rhonda Huettenmueller breaks college algebra down into manageable bites with practical examples, real data, and a new approach that banishes algebra's mystery.

With College Algebra Demystified, you master the subject one simple step at a timeat your own speed. Unlike most books on college algebra, general concepts are presented firstand the details follow. In order to make the process as clear and simple as possible, long computations are presented in a logical, layered progression with just one execution per step.

This fast and easy self-teaching course will help you:

  • Perform better on placement exams
  • Avoid confusion with detailed examples and solutions that help you every step of the way
  • Conquer the coordinate plane, lines and intercepts, parabolas, and nonlinear equations
  • Get comfortable with functions, graphs of functions, logarithms, exponents, and more
  • Master aspects of algebra that will help you with calculus, geometry, trigonometry, physics, chemistry, computing, and engineering
  • Reinforce learning and pinpoint weaknesses with questions at the end of every chapter, and a final at the end of the book

Synopsis:

Preface Chapter 1: Completing the Square Chapter 2: Absolute Value Equations and Inequalities Chapter 3: The xy Coordinate Plane Chapter 4: Lines and Parabolas Chapter 5: Nonlinear Inequalities Chapter 6: Functions Chapter 7: Quadratic Functions Chapter 8: Transformations and Combinations Chapter 9: Polynomial Functions Chapter 10: Systems of Equations and Inequalities Chapter 11: Exponents and Logarithms Appendix (Final Exam and Index)
