College Algebra: Building Concepts and Connections 2e

The goal of the Second Edition of College Algebra: Building Concepts and Connections is to teach students to more clearly see how mathematical concepts connect and relate. The text sets out to accomplish this goal in two fundamental ways.

First, the pedagogy “recalls” previous topics and skills by way of Just in Time exercises and references. Through these devices, students receive consistent prompts that enable them to better remember and apply what they have learned. Second, exercise sets integrate skills, applications, and concepts so that students can view mathematics from multiple perspectives.

Ultimately, the hope is that through College Algebra: Building Concepts and Connections, students will develop a better conceptual understanding of the subject and achieve greater preparedness for future math courses.

Each of our 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:
