Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

KEY BENEFIT: The Bittinger Concepts and Applications Series brings proven pedagogy to a new generation of students, with updates throughout to help today’s students learn. Bittinger transitions students from skills-based math to the concepts-oriented math required for college courses, and supports students with quality applications and exercises to help them apply and retain their knowledge. New features such as Translating for Success and Visualizing for Success unlock the way students think, making math accessible to them.

 

KEY TOPICS: Algebraic and Problem Solving; Graphs, Functions, and Linear Equations; Introduction to Graphing; Inequalities and Problem Solving; 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.

Synopsis:

This package contains the following components:

-0201716305: MathXL (12-month access)

-0321557182: Intermediate Algebra: Concepts and Applications

Synopsis:

When the answer at the back of the book is simply not enough, then you need the Student Solutions Manual.  With fully worked-out solutions to all odd-numbered text problems, the Student Solutions Manual lets you "learn by example" and see the mathematical steps required to reach a solution.  Worked-out problems included in the Solutions Manual are carefully selected from the textbook as representative of each section's exercise sets so you can follow-along and study more effectively. The Student Solutions Manual is simply the fastest way to see your mistakes, improve learning, and get better grades.
