About the New Series

These books are rooted in the proven teaching methods that you come to expect from an XYZ Textbook, with some innovative features to support your students' success.

Every section has been written so that it can be discussed in a single class session. The clean layout and the authors' conversational style make it easy for students to read, and important information such as definitions and properties are highlighted so that they can easily be located and referenced by students.

The following features provide both instructors and students a vast array of resources which can be used to enrich the learning environment and promote student success:

  • Chapter Introductions
  • Learning Objectives
  • "Getting Ready for Class"
  • "Getting Ready for the Next Section"
  • Learning Objectives Assessments
  • "Paying Attention to Instructions"
  • "How To" Segments
  • "Spotlight on Success"
  • Real-Data Application Problems
  • Facts from Geometry
  • QR Codes
  • Chapter Summary / Chapter Test

Learning Objectives

A quick road map for each section to help students identify and focus on the important concepts and increase the likelihood of their success.

"Getting Ready for Class"

Four key questions at the end of every section that students should be able to answer with ease if they have read the material before class.

"Getting Ready for the Next Section"

A brief preview of the next section to help student maintain their momentum as much as possible, with a small taste of the problem types they will encounter next.

Learning Objectives Assessments

A short section of multiple-choice questions at the end of every exercise set to test whether students have met the learning objectives for each section.

"Paying Attention to Instructions"

Integrated into the problem sets, these particular exercises really challenge students to carefully read the instructions for each problem.

"How To" Segments

A little more detail, as needed, outlining the steps in a method or process to help students internalize the particular problem-solving strategy.

"Spotlight on Success"

Each student has a unique approach to learning, so this feature offers students a variety of strategies from a variety of sources.

Real-Data Application Problems

Applied problems that help give students a greater mathematical "sense," and even make the concepts a little easier to understand.

Facts from Geometry

Geometry can give students another view of the problem, and potentially, another avenue for understanding algebraic concepts.

QR Codes

Integrated throughout the textbook, QR codes connect the printed version to the digital assets via one scan with a QR reader on any mobile device.

Chapter Summary

Lists the main properties and definitions found in the chapter, with examples given in the margin.

Chapter Summary

A representative sample of the various types of problems students have encountered in the chapter.

Encourage your students to make regular use of these features—you'll find that they will gradually build a foundation of successful studying practices that will benefit them in all their future courses.

More Than Just a Textbook

Each of these textbooks is more than just a book. We built them each to be the hub of a math "toolbox" of sorts. While most students still prefer to use the printed book in their studies, the eBook extends the reach of the book, giving students and instructors access to a wide array of supporting tools:

XYZ eBook

Ebook access includes access to all ebooks.

Videos

It also includes free access to 10,000 MathTV videos, with 3-4 tutorials for every single example.

Supplements

Students also get all of the accompanying worksheets and digital supplements for the book.

QR Codes

QR code technology connects the printed textbook directly to the digital resources through the students' smartphones and tablets.
