### Progress Check — (eBook only)

This new self-study feature allows students to get as much practice as they want on the examples in the book. Each **Practice Example** correlates with the examples from each section of the eBook. The system automatically generates new problems, so students can do each one of them until they feel confident that they understand it. Everything is recorded in a section-by-section **Progress Report** to help students keep track of their progress.

### 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.
