Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Key Benefit: Essentials of College Algebra by Lial, Hornsby, and Schneider, gives readers a solid foundation in the basic functions of college algebra and their graphs, starting with a strong review of intermediate algebra concepts and ending with an introduction to systems and matrices. This brief version of the College Algebra, Tenth Edition has been specifically designed to provide a more compact and less expensive book for courses that do not include the more advanced topics covered in the longer book.

 

Focused on helping readers develop both the conceptual understanding and the analytical skills necessary to experience success in mathematics, the authors present each mathematical topic in this text using a carefully developed learning system to actively engage students in the learning process. The book addresses the diverse needs of today's students through a clear design, current figures and graphs, helpful features, careful explanations of topics, and a comprehensive package of supplements and study aids.

Key Topics:

R. Review of Basic Concepts, Sets, Real Numbers and Their Properties, Polynomials, Factoring Polynomials, Rational Expressions,

Rational Exponents, Radical Expressions, Equations and Inequalities, Linear Equations, Applications and Modeling with Linear Equations, Complex Numbers, Quadratic Equations, Applications and Modeling with Quadratic Equations, Other Types of Equations and Applications, Inequalities, Absolute Value Equations and Inequalities, Graphs and Functions,  Rectangular Coordinates and Graphs, Circles,  Functions, Linear Functions, Equations of Lines; Curve Fitting, Graphs of Basic Functions, Graphing Techniques, Function Operations and Composition, Polynomial and Rational Functions,  Quadratic Functions and Models, Synthetic Division, Zeros of Polynomial Functions, Polynomial Functions: Graphs, Applications, and Models,
