Elementary and Intermediate Algebra  With 2 CD's (2ND 09  Old Edition)by George Woodbury
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Publisher Comments:KEY BENEFIT: George Woodbury's Algebra Series empowers students for future success in collegelevel math courses through its earlyandoften approach to functions and graphing, integrated study strategies, and quality exercise sets that encourage true conceptual understanding. By writing this text from the ground up as a single textbook, George has reduced the amount of overlap typically found in these courses and focused instead on providing more exercises and applications. Review of Real Numbers, Linear Equations, Graphing Linear Equations, Systems of Equations, Exponents and Polynomials, Factoring and Quadratic Equations, Rational Expressions and Equations, Transition, Radical Expressions and Equations, Quadratic Equations, Functions, Logarithmic and Exponential Functions, Conic Sections, Sequences, Series, and the Binomial Theorem. MARKET: For all readers interested in Algebra.
About the AuthorGeorge Woodbury earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics from the University of California—Santa Barbara in 1990 and his master’s degree in mathematics from California State University—Northridge, in 1994. He currently teaches at College of the Sequoias in Visalia, CA–just outside of Fresno. He has been honored as an instructor by both his students and his colleagues. Aside from teaching and writing, George served as the department chair of the math/engineering division from 1999—2004. George’s Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, First Edition, was published in 2006. Table of Contents1. Review of Real Numbers
