Intermediate Algebra Graphs & Models 2ND Editionby Marvin L Bittinger
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments: The Third Edition of the Bittinger Graphs and Models series helps readers succeed in algebra by emphasizing a visual understanding of concepts. This latest edition incorporates a new Visualizing for Success feature that helps readers make intuitive connections between graphs and functions without the aid of a graphing calculator. In addition, readers learn problemsolving skills from the Bittinger hallmark fivestep problemsolving process coupled with Connecting the Concepts and Aha! Exercises. As you have come to expect with any Bittinger text, we bring you a complete supplements package including MyMathLab™ and the New Instructor and Adjunct Support Manual. KEY TOPICS: Basics of Algebra and Graphing; Functions, Linear Equations, and Models; Systems of Linear Equations and Problem Solving; More Equations and Inequalities; Polynomials and Polynomial Functions; Rational Expressions, Equations, and Functions; Exponents and Radicals; Quadratic Functions and Equations; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Conic Sections; Sequences, Series, and the Binomial Theorem. MARKET: For all readers interested in Algebra.
Book News Annotation:Drawing examples from business, chemistry, and physics, this textbook walks through graphical and algebraic methods for solving linear equations, inequalities, and polynomials, as well as rational, radical, quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic equations. The second edition moves the conic sections material to an appendix and adds a section on factoring the sums and differences of cubes.
