#### Publisher Comments

**brings together all the elements that have allowed instructors and learners to successfully "bridge the gap" between classroom instruction and independent homework by overcoming common learning barriers and building confidence in students' ability to do mathematics. Written in a clear, single voice that speaks to students and mirrors how instructors communicate in lecture, Young's hallmark pedagogy enables students to become independent, successful learners. Varied exercise types and modeling projects keep the learning fresh and motivating. Young continues her tradition of fostering a love for succeeding in mathematics by introducing inquiry-based learning projects in this edition, providing learners an opportunity to master the material with more freedom while reinforcing mathematical skills and intuition.**

*College Algebra*The seamless integration of Cynthia Young's ** College Algebra 3^{rd} edition** with WileyPLUS, a research-based, online environment for effective teaching and learning, continues Young's vision of building student confidence in mathematics because it takes the guesswork out of studying by providing them with a clear roadmap: what to do, how to do it, and whether they did it right.

#### Synopsis

*College Algebra*focuses on revisions and additions including hundreds of new exercises, more opportunities to use technology, and themed modeling projects that help connect content to real-world issues. The text builds upon the previous two editions with more in-depth and enhanced coverage on ways to help overcome common learning barriers in algebra and build confidence for readers. The text features truly unique, strong pedagogy and as with the previous two issues, is written in a clear, single voice.
