The fundamental goal in Tussy and Gustafson's INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, Third Edition is to teach students to read, write, and think about mathematics through building a conceptual foundation in the language of mathematics. The book blends instructional approaches that include vocabulary, practice, and well-defined pedagogy, along with an emphasis on reasoning, modeling, communication, and technology skills to develop students' fluency in the "language of algebra". Tussy and Gustafson understand the challenges of teaching developmental students and this book reflects a holistic approach to teaching mathematics that includes developing study skills, problem solving and critical thinking alongside mathematical concepts. New features in this edition include a pretest for students to gauge their understanding of prerequisite concepts, problems that make correlations between student life and the mathematical concepts and study skills information designed to give students the best chance to succeed in the course. Additionally, the texts widely acclaimed Study Sets at the end of every section are tailored to improve students' ability to read, write and communicate mathematical ideas.

Intermediate Algebra focuses on the principles, operations, and approaches involved in intermediate algebra. The book first elaborates on basic properties and definitions, first-degree equations and inequalities, and exponents and polynomials. Discussions focus on the greatest common factor and factoring by grouping, factoring trinomials, special factoring, equations with absolute value, inequalities involving absolute value, formulas, first-degree equations, graphing simple and compound inequalities, and properties of real numbers. The text then takes a look at rational expressions, rational exponents and roots, and quadratic equations. Topics include solving quadratic equations by factoring, discriminant and the sum and product of solutions, multiplication and division of complex numbers, combinations of radical expressions, rational exponents, complex fractions, and multiplication and division of rational expressions. The manuscript elaborates on sequence and series, logarithms, relations and functions, and conic sections, including ellipses and hyperbolas, nonlinear systems, function and notation, algebra with functions, common logarithms and computations, and word problems. The publication is a dependable reference for students and researchers interested in intermediate algebra.

Beginning Algebra: Connecting Concepts Through Applications

View: 8551

BEGINNING ALGEBRA: CONNECTING CONCEPTS THROUGH APPLICATIONS shows students how to apply traditional mathematical skills in real-world contexts. The emphasis on skill building and applications engages students as they master algebraic concepts, problem solving, and communication skills. Students learn how to solve problems generated from realistic applications, instead of learning techniques without conceptual understanding. The authors have developed several key ideas to make concepts real and vivid for students. First, they emphasize strong algebra skills. These skills support the applications and enhance student comprehension. Second, the authors integrate applications, drawing on realistic data to show students why they need to know and how to apply math. The applications help students develop the skills needed to explain the meaning of answers in the context of the application. Third, the authors develop key concepts as students progress through the course. For example, the distributive property is introduced in real numbers, covered when students are learning how to multiply a polynomial by a constant, and finally when students learn how to multiply a polynomial by a monomial. These concepts are reinforced through applications in the text. Last, the authors' approach prepares students for intermediate algebra by including an introduction to material such as functions and interval notation as well as the last chapter that covers linear and quadratic modeling.
