Product Information

Intermediate Algebra

Intermediate Algebra fits the traditional, one-semester, intermediate algebra course. The prerequisite is Elementary Algebra in college, or Algebra I in high school.

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

Progress Check — New in 2016! (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.

We Make Our Customers Happy

I am an adult who is continuing my education. MathTV is fantastic! I especially like the variety of the folks going over the problems. For whatever reason it is more user friendly than others I've viewed. Great idea, great job!

American Allied University

I've been using your texts for the past two weeks, and the students are loving it. I actually have to remind them to get up and take a break, since each class meets in the math lab for just under 4 hours at a time. So far, they are doing great.

Terry Valentine
SUNY Columbia-Greene CC

I just love the way the material in the series is divided up in a strict succession of topics, unlike the other over-stuffed texts available. And of course the price is appealing too.
