Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

A worktext format for basic college math or arithmetic courses including lecture-based, self-paced, and modular classes.

John Tobey and Jeff Slater are experienced developmental math authors and active classroom teachers.  The Tobey approach focuses on building skills one at a time by breaking math down into manageable pieces.  This building block organization is a practical approach to basic math skill development that makes it easier for students to understand each topic, gaining confidence as they move through each section.  Knowing students crave feedback, Tobey has enhanced the new edition with a "How am I Doing?" guide to math success. The combination of continual reinforcement of basic skill development, ongoing feedback and a fine balance of exercises makes the second edition of Tobey/Slater Beginning and Intermediate Algebra even more practical and accessible.
