Elementary Algebra: Concepts and Applicationsby Marvin L Bitinger
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:The goal of Elementary Algebra: Concepts and Applications, 7e is to help today’s students learn and retain mathematical concepts by preparing them for the transition from “skillsoriented” elementary algebra courses to more “conceptoriented” collegelevel mathematics courses, as well as to make the transition from “skill” to “application.” This edition continues to bring your students a bestselling text that incorporates the fivestep problemsolving process, realworld applications, proven pedagogy, and an accessible writing style. The Bittinger/Ellenbogen series has consistently provided teachers and students with the tools needed to succeed in developmental mathematics. This edition has an even stronger focus on vocabulary and conceptual understanding as well as making the mathematics more accessible to students. Among the features added are new Concept Reinforcement exercises, Student Notes that help students avoid common mistakes, and Study Summaries that highlight the most important concepts and terminology from each chapter.
Introduction to Algebraic Expressions; Equations, Inequalities, and Problem Solving; Introduction to Graphing; Polynomials; Polynomials and Factoring; Rational Expressions and Equations; Systems and More Graphing; Radical Expressions and Equations; Quadratic Equations For all readers interested in elementary algebra. Synopsis: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 skillsbased math to the conceptsoriented 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.
