Review of Elementary Algebra

Editorial review
The first book in Kaufmann's highly successful algebra series, ELEMENTARY ALGEBRA, Sixth Edition, develops algebraic concepts through numerous examples, and continuously reinforces those concepts through additional examples and applications in problem-solving situations. Foregoing excessive technical language and formalism, Kaufmann presents algebraic concepts in a simple, straightforward manner, making ELEMENTARY ALGEBRA an ideal book to learn and teach from. --This text refers to the Spiral-bound edition.

Review of Intermediate Algebra with CD

Editorial review
New edition of an algebra text that blends the vocabulary, practice, and well-defined pedagogy of a traditional approach with the reasoning, modeling, communicating, and technological skills that are a part of the current reform movement. Tussy (Citrus College) and Gustafson (Rock Valley College) present the mathematical information in ten chapters that also contain study sets, coverage of geometry, emphasis on graphing, functions and modeling concepts, problem-solving strategies, connections to other disciplines, group with, key concepts, analyzing real data, and systematic review.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR

Review of Elementary Algebra: Equations and Graphs with Student Workbook

Editorial review
Yoshiwara's ELEMENTARY ALGEBRA was written with two goals in mind: to present the skills of algebra in the context of modeling and problem solving; and to engage students as active participants in the process of learning. The text begins with a study of tables and graphs, and the concept of the variable is developed from that platform. Graphs are used extensively throughout the book to illustrate algebraic technique and to help students visualize relationships between variables. This book ultimately builds an intuitive framework for the later study of functions, thus giving students the skills they need to be successful in future math courses.

Review of Prealgebra

Editorial review
The new Fourth Edition of McKeague's popular book presents the basic concepts of algebra early and then applies them to new topics as they are encountered. Patient and clear in its explanations and problems, McKeague's presentation helps students understand the material and concepts and gives additional information in visual form, diagrams, charts, and graphs. Each chapter opens with a real-world application and wherever possible, introductions are expanded in the chapter and carried through to topics found later in the book.

Review of Understanding Intermediate Algebra with CD: Algebra for College Students

Editorial review
This text/CD-ROM strives to present algebra as a whole rather than as a series of isolated ideas. Basic concepts, rules, and definitions are explained with numerical, analytic, and graphical examples. Many sections begin with a real-life application. Some 6,000 exercises, including calculator exercises, are included. Other learning features include critical thinking questions, margin comments, boxes on the connection between algebraic and geometric aspects of concepts, and worked examples in question-and-answer format. Explanations of key elementary algebra concepts are provided for less prepared students. The CD-ROM contains video lessons for each section of the text. Hirsch is affiliated with Rutgers University. Goodman is affiliated with Queens College, City University of New York.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR

Review of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: A Combined Approach with CD

Editorial review
New to the third edition are the reorganization and revision of some of the chapters and the addition of a cumulative review problem set or practice test after each section and many word problems throughout. The CD-ROM contains eight hours of video instruction. "Combined approach" refers to the presentation of both elementary and intermediate algebra in the same text. This is a large book, well- illustrated with graphs and figures, and written with application of the concepts in mind.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
