0321129873: MathXL (24month access) 0321644905: Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra About the AuthorAn awardwinning instructor and bestselling author, Elayn MartinGay has taught mathematics at the University of New Orleans for more than 25 years. Her numerous teaching awards include the local University Alumni Association’s Award for Excellence in Teaching, and Outstanding Developmental Educator at University of New Orleans, presented by the Louisiana Association of Developmental Educators.
Prior to writing textbooks, Elayn developed an acclaimed series of lecture videos to support developmental mathematics students in their quest for success. These highly successful videos originally served as the foundation material for her texts. Today, the videos are specific to each book in the MartinGay series. Elayn also pioneered the Chapter Test Prep Video to help students as they prepare for a test–their most “teachable moment!”
Elayn’s experience has made her aware of how busy instructors are and what a difference quality support makes. For this reason, she created the InstructortoInstructor video series. These videos provide instructors with suggestions for presenting specific math topics and concepts in basic mathematics, prealgebra, beginning algebra, and intermediate algebra. Seasoned instructors can use them as a source for alternate approaches in the classroom. New or adjunct faculty may find the videos useful for review. Her textbooks and acclaimed video program support Elayn's passion of helping everystudent to succeed. Table of Contents1.
