Publisher 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 problem-solving skills from the Bittinger hallmark five-step problem-solving 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.
