Publisher Comments:

Learn to think mathematically and develop genuine problem-solving skills with Stewart, Redlin, and Watson's COLLEGE ALGEBRA, Fifth Edition. This straightforward and easy-to-use algebra book will help you learn the fundamentals of algebra in a variety of practical ways. The book features new tools to help you succeed, such as learning objectives before each section to prepare you for what you're about to learn, and a list of formulas and key concepts after each section that help reinforce what you've learned. In addition, the book includes many real-world examples that show you how mathematics is used to model in fields like engineering, business, physics, chemistry, and biology.

Book News Annotation:

Coverage in this textbook extends from basic algebra and coordinates to sequences and series and counting and probability. Pedagogical features include worked examples, focus sections on modeling and problem solving, and integration of the use of graphing calculators and computers. The fifth edition replaces 15% of the exercises, adds a section on getting information from the graph of a function, and moves the quadratic functions section to the polynomial chapter.

Synopsis:

James Stewart, author of the worldwide, best-selling Calculus texts, along with two of his former Ph.D. students, Lothar Redlin and Saleem Watson, collaborated in writing this text to address a problem they frequently saw in their calculus courses: many students were not prepared to think mathematically but attempted instead to memorize facts and mimic examples. College Algebra was written specifically to help students learn to think mathematically and to develop true problem-solving skills.
