Editorial review
Takes a graphing approach. Fully integrates graphing technology.
Contents will match a standard course syllabi for intermediate
algebra as it has typically been taught. DLC: Algebra. This

Review of Investigations in Algebra : An Approach to Using Logo
Editorial review
How fortunate are the students at Woburn High School (in Woburn,
Massachusetts), where this material was developed, and where
its author teaches. It invites students to "tinker"
with the stuff of mathematics (functions in Part I, combinatorics
in Part II, number theory in Part III)to formulate and test
conjectures, to sniff out pretty patterns in unlikely places,
to explore. Presumes little beyond some familiarity with Logo.
Crackles with excitement; the stuff of inspired teaching and
joyous learning. (NW) Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland,

THIS IS A PROGRAMMED, AUDIOTUTORIAL APPROACH TO LEARNING ALGEBRA.
I USED TO GET LOST IN THE TRADITIONAL LECTURE APPROACH TO MATH
 THEN USED THIS BOOK ALONG WITH THE TAPES AT BAKERSFIELD COLLEGE.
AFTER YEARS OF FRUSTRATION WITH MATH, I FINALLY GOT IT! I RECOMMEND
THIS BOOK TO ANYONE WHO FEEL THEY ARE "MATHIMPAIRED' AFTER
TAKING THE TYPICAL CLASSES.
Review of Intermediate Algebra: A Graphing Approach
Editorial review
This is the first softcover worktext to incorporate graphing
technology into this course. It emphasizes problem solving,
reasoning, mathematical communication, and mathematical connections.
More than 350 examples go beyond typical textbook examples to
emphasize applications, problemsolving strategies, and reasoning.
This text adheres to recently suggested math guidelines, with
an emphasis on mathematical literacy, critical thinking, group/collaborative
learning activities, applications, and technology.
Review of Elementary Algebra
Editorial review
Ignacio Bello uses his oneofakind learning system to introduce,
explain, and reinforce mathematical concepts and techniques.
Chapter material is broken down and labeled by learning objective;
subsections, examples, exercises, and test problems supporting
each objective are correspondingly labeled to tie appropriate
material together.

This is a excellent book covering the fundamentals of linear
algebra. Filled with welldocumented examples, this book served
as an excellent suppliment to my assigned linear algebra book.
Review of Beginning and Intermediate Algebra (2nd Edition)
Editorial review
New edition of a text that overlaps between typical beginning
and intermediate algebra texts. Lial (American River College)
and Hornsby (U. of New Orleans) have organized the 14 chapters
to accommodate the early introduction of functions and graphing
lines in a rectangular coordinate system, thus providing students
with important concepts that will be an integral part of later
mathematics courses. Subsequent chapters cover linear equations,
lines and graphing, lines and inequalities, sequences and series,
and other related topics.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR

Lial and Hornsby have written a number of books on Algebra.
Hence, their expertise in this field of Mathematics and ability
to deliver in the form most suitable for the middle and high
schoolers , in particular is wonderful. Review Exercises at
the end of each major subdivision provide means for readers
to practice. And also ensure that the readers have gained overall
expertise in the particular subdivision. Also , another advantage
of this book , in contrast to many other available books, is
the cumulative review exercises that engulf concepts from all
the preceding chapters, which provides the means to show how
these topics are interrelated. Tests provided also aid in this
process. The topics are well organized and explained. Very Good
Book...
Review of College Algebra (8th Edition)
Editorial review
Marge Lial was always interested in math; it was her favorite
subject in the first grade! Marge's intense desire to educate
both her students and herself has inspired the writing of numerous
bestselling textbooks. Marge, who received Bachelor's and Master's
degrees from California State University at Sacramento, is now
affiliated with American River College.Marge is an avid reader
and traveler. Her travel experiences often find their way into
her books as applications, exercise sets, and feature sets.
She is particularly interested in archeology. Trips to various
digs and ruin sites have produced some fascinating problems
for her textbooks involving such topics as the building of Mayan
pyramids and the acoustics of ancient ball courts in the Yucatan.John
Hornsby When John Hornsby enrolled as an undergraduate at Louisiana
State University, he was uncertain whether he wanted to study
mathematics, education, or journalism. His ultimate decision
was to become a teacher, but after twentyfive years of teaching
at the high school and university levels and ten years of writing
mathematics textbooks, both of his goals have been realized.
His love for teaching and for mathematics is evident in his
passion for working with students and fellow teachers as well.
His specific professional interests are recreational mathematics,
mathematics history, and incorporating graphing calculators
into the curriculum.John's personal life is busy as he devotes
time to his family (wife Gwen, and sons Chris, Jack, and Josh).
He has been a rabid baseball fan all of his life. John's other
hobbies include numismatics (the study of coins) and record
collecting. He loves the music of the 1960s and has an extensive
collection of the recorded works of Frankie Valli and the Four
Seasons.

I am in the midst of taking the third in a succession of algebra
courses using this particular series of textbooks. This book,
by far, surpasses the others in difficulty of use! Many of the
illustrations seem to have little or no bearing upon the problems
given and the explanations can be obscure at best. The book
is also poorly edited making matters even worse. If you have
never before experienced the height of frustration, I would
recommend this book as a means of getting there. The sad part
is that I really wanted to like algebra and this book has made
it almost impossible.

This is the third algebra class I've taken and I received an
A on my other two classes. Using this textbook, I'll be fortunate
to pass. The problems are not explained well, there are not
examples for every type of problem, the review problems and
test at the end of each chapter do not having the corresponding
section from which they were taken. The way the authors explain
problems are different from what I was taught before. Given
a choice, I would not buy this textbook. I have to go to my
intermediate text by a different author and even that doesn't
help much.

This book will leave you dazed and confused if you don't have
a lot of mathematical background. The authors assume that you
already know everything about algebra and don't really explain
certain things or steps that you need to take to get a certain
answer. In order to completely understand this book you need
the intermediate algebra book that has been written by almost
all the same authors... If you don't use the intermediate algebra
book as a reference you'll just be dazed and confused!
