Review of College Algebra with CD

Editorial review
This college-level algebra textbook is designed to develop critical thinking skills and prepare students for higher-level math courses. The approach stresses the concept of function, and uses real-life applications to motivate problem solving. Topics include all the basic concepts of college math, such as: equations and inequalities, the rectangular coordinate system and graphs of equations, functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, polynomial equations, linear systems, conic sections and quadratic systems, natural-number functions and probability, and finance.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The paperback verion is a student solutions manual and study guide, for Gustafson and Frisk's College Algebra. It does not have the same information as the hardback book

Review of The Learning Equation: College Algebra Student Workbook

Editorial review
Designed for learner-focused, computer classroom, lab-based, and distance learning courses, adopting institutions receive and have license to install all TLE courses on their campus computers, even if they only adopt and have students purchase TLE for one section of one course.The pedagogical model employs a "Guided Inquiry" approach whereby students construct their own understanding of concepts. Instead of passively being fed information, students are actively involved in tasks requiring them to discover or apply mathematical concepts. The browser-based course management system that accompanies TLE includes a new testing system that allows for the easy creation of algorithmically-generated, machine-graded, free-response mathematics practice, quizzes, and tests, giving instructors the power to assess student understanding of skills in a more meaningful way. Because the testing and course management system is browser-based, it can be used on a stand alone or networked computer, or any computer with Internet access, giving instructors the power to access course management information such as student progress, time-on-task, and grades, anytime, anywhere. Students working off campus can upload course management information remotely using the Internet or can save this information to a floppy disk. In addition, adopting institutions may use Thomson Learning servers for course management at no additional cost.

Review of The Learning Equation Online for Intermediate Algebra Lessons

Editorial review
The TLE Online Companion is a 32 page USER'S GUIDE with online PIN-code access to THE LEARNING EQUATION lessons, bundled with Tussy/Gustafson's INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, SECOND EDITION. Delivered entirely over the Internet, students can access 15 lessons per course, hand-picked by Alan Tussy to enhance the presentation of specific concepts in the course. The TLE ONLINE COMPANION is adapted from the full version of THE LEARNING EQUATION line of developmental mathematics courseware products. Designed for learner-focused, computer classroom, lab-based, and distance learning courses, the pedagogical model employs a "Guided Inquiry" approach whereby students construct their own understanding of concepts. Instead of passively being fed information, students are actively involved in tasks requiring them to discover or apply mathematical concepts. Each lesson has seven interactive components: Introduction, Tutorial, Examples, Summary, Practice and Problems, Extra Practice, and Self Check. The interactive learning content is the perfect compliment to the textbooks, designed to engage and enrich the student's learning experience by addressing multiple learning styles.Using the power of the most comprehensive and powerful course management system available, student progress is tracked from whatever location they choose to learn. The auto-enrollment feature via PIN codes, customizable grade book, world-class test generator for printed and on line assessments, and outstanding communication tools makes managing the learning experience fast and easy.

Review of College Algebra Activities for TI-81 Graphing Calculator :

Editorial review
This brief, paperback book teaches calculator techniques that are relevant to learning college algebra--with little need for in-class explanations. Step-by-step instructions along with "Snapshots" of what should be displayed by the calculator make learning the techniques easy. Professors and students alike will appreciate the book's use of the graphing calculator as a learning tool, the easy-to-use numerical analysis programs, and the problem-solving techniques that go beyond the traditional linear and quadratic type of word problems.

Review of Thinkwell College Algebra With Edward Burger

Editorial review
A textbook for a numerical methods course for engineering and science students, emphasizing the application of approximation techniques to the types of problems that commonly occur in engineering and the physical sciences. The included disk contains software programs written in both FORTRAN and Pascal, which permit students to generate all the results that are included in the examples and to modify the programs to generate solutions to problems of their choice.

Review of Essential Algebra

Editorial review
This traditional, straight-forward, extremely popular book helps students learn algebra concepts by using a one-step, one-concept-at-a-time approach. All major topics are divided into small sections, each with its own examples and often with its own exercises--an approach that helps students master each section before proceeding to the next one.

I had a BA and was planning to enter a B.S. program after ten years out of High School. This book was a tremendous help in refreshing my mathematics skills. The material is presented clearly and in very understandable language. There are periodic tests one can take to chart one's progress between chapters, helpful reviews of terminology and appendices with review of some fundamentals you may have forgotten as well as a preview of the sort of math this book would lead into if one continued. The answers to the exercises are worked out in the back of the book (the odd numbered questions are shown at length) so that you can catch mistakes in methodology (and in arithematic).It is simply impossible to not follow the easy phraseology and straight-forward teaching techniques. You almost breeze through the material because it is presented so clearly and in such easy language. The instruction is explicit with a step-by-step analysis of the material and a lengthy explanation of how one goes about solving involved equations. I only wish I had these authors as my math teachers in high school-I'd have remembered without difficulty the math skills I need now.

Review of Beginning Algebra

Editorial review
Written with beginning mathematics students in mind, experienced authors and professors Jordan and Palow take a slightly different approach to algebra--one that is extensively class tested and consistent with the AMATYC standards. The authors emphasize relationships between arithmetic and algebra, helping students to see how seemingly isolated principles fit together. The order of topics is thus somewhat different than the order presented in most texts. For example, rather than presenting all the operations on integers and later presenting the same operation on polynomials, this text presents them one after the other. This order reinforces the operation on integers and gives students an immediate reason for learning the operation (since they will have to perform the same operation on polynomials).

Review of Prealgebra

Editorial review
This text was written to help ease the transition from the numerical skills of arithmetic to the more abstract world of algebra. The text concentrates on conceptual understanding in place of rote application of algorithms and encourages students to explore algebraic concepts in an informal way to build a foundation for the subsequent formal study of algebra, as recommended in the NCTM Standards.
