Summary: Often, algebra & trigonometry students leave class believing that they understand a concept but are unable to apply that understanding when they get home and attempt their homework problems. This mainstream yet innovative text is written by an experienced professor who has identified this gap as one of the biggest challenges that algebra & trigonometry professors face. She uses a clear, voice that speaks directly to students- similar to how instructors communica
te to them in class. Students learning from this text will overcome common barriers to learning algebra & trigonometry and will build confidence in their ability to do mathematics.
