WE NEED TO EDIT FOR THE 2/E Watch the video above to see Pat McKeague explain the why this book gives students a condensed review of elementary algebra, providing a new perspective on topics they have previously covered.

We have some good news! Our intermediate algebra book gives students a condensed review of elementary algebra, providing a new perspective on topics they have previously covered. Chapter 1 reviews all of arithmetic with positive and negative numbers, the properties of numbers, and all of the material on exponents and polynomials that is contained in elementary algebra. What makes our approach more interesting is that we review by operation, rather than topic. Here's how we do it...

These problems appear at the end of every problem set. They are the exact problems that students will see when they read through the next section of the text. Students who consistently work these problems will be much better prepared for class than students who don't work these problems.

Just before each problem set is a list of four questions under the heading Getting Ready for Class. These problems require written responses from students and are to be done before students come to class. The answers can be found by reading the preceding section. These questions reinforce the importance of reading the section before coming to class.

This book includes many new problems that use real-world applications for the mathematical subject, making the concepts easier to understand. Many times the charts and graphics in the text look like the types of charts and graphics students see in the media.

These are detailed outlines of the steps needed to successfully solve application problems. Intended as a guide to problem solving in general, the Blueprint overlays the solution process to all the application problems early in the book. As students become more accomplished at problem solving, the steps are streamlined.

Scattered throughout the book are exercises that demonstrate how graphing calculators, spreadsheets and computer graphing programs can be used to enhance the topics being covered.

This feature gives students a chance to see how topics from geometry are related to the algebra they are using.
