Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:The Tobey/Slater Series builds essential skills one at a time by breaking the mathematics down into manageable pieces. This practical “building block” organization makes it easy for readers to understand each topic and gain confidence as they move through each section. The authors provide a “How am I Doing?” guide to give readers constant reinforcement and to ensure that they understand each concept before moving on to the next. With Tobey/Slater, readers have a tutor and study companion with them every step of the way. A Brief Review of Arithmetic Skills; Real Numbers and Variables; Equations and Inequalities; Solving Applied Problems; Exponents and Polynomials; Factoring; Rational Expressions and Equations; Graphing and Functions; Systems of Equations; Radicals; Quadratic Equations. For all readers interested in basic college mathematics.
