Publisher Comments:

KEY BENEFIT: The Bittinger Worktext Series changed the face of developmental education with the introduction of objective-based worktexts that presented math one concept at a time. This approach allowed students to understand the rationale behind each concept before practicing the associated skills and then moving on to the next topic. With this revision, Marv Bittinger continues to focus on building success through conceptual understanding, while also supporting students with quality applications, exercises, and new review and study materials to help students apply and retain their knowledge.

 

KEY TOPICS: Review of Basic Algebra, Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities, Graphs, Functions, and Applications, Systems of Equations, Polynomials and Polynomial Functions, Rational Expressions, Equations, and Functions, Radical Expressions, Equations, and Functions, Quadratic Equations and Functions, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Conic Sections

  MARKET: For all readers interested in algebra.

About the Author

Marvin Bittinger has been teaching math at the university level for more than thirty-eight years. Since 1968, he has been employed at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis, and is now professor emeritus of mathematics education. Professor Bittinger has authored over 190 publications on topics ranging from basic mathematics to algebra and trigonometry to applied calculus. He received his BA in mathematics from Manchester College and his PhD in mathematics education from Purdue University. Special honors include Distinguished Visiting Professor at the United States Air Force Academy and his election to the Manchester College Board of Trustees from 1992 to 1999. Professor Bittinger has also had the privilege of speaking at many mathematics conventions, most recently giving a lecture entitled "Baseball and Mathematics." His hobbies include hiking in Utah, baseball, golf, and bowling. In addition, he also has an interest in philosophy and theology, in particular, apologetics. Professor Bittinger currently lives in Carmel, Indiana with his wife Elaine. He has two grown and married sons, Lowell and Chris, and four granddaughters.
