Synopses & Reviews
Unique in its approach, the Lehmann Algebra Series uses curve fitting to model compelling, authentic situations, while answering the perennial question But what is this good for? Lehmann begins with interesting data sets, and then uses the data to find models and derive equations that fit the scenario. This interactive approach to the data helps students connect concepts and motivates them to learn. The curve-fitting approach encourages students to understand functions graphically, numerically, and symbolically. Because of the multi-faceted understanding that they gain, students are able to verbally describe the concepts related to functions. Linear Equations and Linear Functions, Modeling with Linear Functions, Systems of Linear Equations, Exponential Functions, Logarithmic Functions, Polynomial Functions, Quadratic Functions, Rational Functions, Radical Functions, Sequences and Series, Additional Topics For all readers interested in algebra.
