As in previous editions, the focus in INTRODUCTORY ALGEBRA, remains on the Aufmann Interactive Method (AIM). Students are encouraged to be active participants in the classroom and in their own studies as they work through the How To examples and the paired Examples and You Try It problems. The role of active participant is crucial to success. Presenting students with worked examples, and then providing them with the opportunity to immediately work similar problems, helps them build their confidence and eventually master the concepts. To this point, simplicity plays a key factor in the organization of this edition, as in all other editions. All lessons, exercise sets, tests, and supplements are organized around a carefully-constructed hierarchy of objectives. This objective-based approach not only serves the needs of students, in terms of helping them to clearly organize their thoughts around the content, but instructors as well, as they work to design syllabi, lesson plans, and other administrative documents. The Eighth Edition features a new design, enhancing the Aufmann Interactive Method and the organization of the text around objectives, making the pages easier for both students and instructors to follow.

Kaufmann and Schwitters have built this text's reputation on clear and concise exposition, numerous examples, and plentiful problem sets. This traditional text consistently reinforces the following common thread: learn a skill; practice the skill to help solve equations; and then apply what you have learned to solve application problems. This simple, straightforward approach has helped many students grasp and apply fundamental problem solving skills necessary for future mathematics courses. Algebraic ideas are developed in a logical sequence, and in an easy-to-read manner, without excessive vocabulary and formalism. The open and uncluttered design helps keep students focused on the concepts while minimizing distractions. Problems and examples reference a broad range of topics, as well as career areas such as electronics, mechanics, and health, showing students that mathematics is part of everyday life. The text's resource package anchored by Enhanced WebAssign, an online homework management tool saves instructors time while also providing additional help and skill-building practice for students outside of class.

This book offers a sound mathematics presentation, useful pedagogy, and a superb problem-solving framework. The Second Edition features a greater incorporation of AMATYC and NCTM standards, reflected in an increased emphasis on visualization and graphing, carefully revised problems and exercises, and more data analysis. A six-step problem-solving approach is woven consistently throughout -- 1) Understand; 2) Assign; 3) Illustrate; 4) Translate into a model (or equation); 5) Complete; 6) Interpret a variety of realistic problems. Increased emphasis on data interpretation, with real data integrated throughout, beginning with an introduction to bar graphs in Section 1.1. With the emphasis on interpreting data via graphs, readers reinforce what they've learned visually and see math's tangibility. Graphing is introduced earlier and developed in-depth in more than one chapter in line with AMATYC and NCTM standards. An early introduction to graphing helps readers see the math in Chapter 3. An emphasis on visualization through graphing is carried throughout; by Chapter 7, readers are ready to master functions and equations of lines.
