Algebra and Trigonometry with Modeling and Visualization (ISBN10: 0321279107; ISBN13: 9780321279101)
ISBN13: 978-0321279101

Summary: Gary Rockswold focuses on teaching algebra in context, answering the question, ''Why am I learning this?'' and ultimately motivating the students to succeed in this class. In addition, the author's understanding of what instructors need from a text (great 'real' examples and lots of exercises) makes this book fun and easy to teach from. Integrating this textbook into your course will be a worthwhile endeavor.

Features
    g-left:10px;margin:0px;'>
  • Applications: The author believes that students become more effective problem-solvers by being exposed to applications throughout the course. Therefore, a wide variety of unique, data-based, contemporary applications are included in nearly every section.
  • Making Connections: This feature points out how concepts presented throughout the course are interrelated. It also provides students with a perspective on how previously learned material applies to the new material they have learned.
  • Checking Basic Concepts: This feature consists of a small set of exercises provided after every two sections. These exercises can be used by students for review purposes, or by the instructor as group activities. They require 10-15 minutes to complete and could be used during class if time is available.
  • End of Chapter Material: Each chapter ends with a summary of key concepts, review exercises, and extended and discovery exercises.
  • Chapter R Reference: Basic Concepts from Algebra and Geometry: This contains much of the material from intermediate algebra and basic geometry in a separate appendix at the back of the text. This material is referenced by Algebra and Geometry Review Notes in the margins of the text.
  • Graphing Calculator Appendix: This allows students to work more easily on their own with the calculator and frees up class time for the instructor. This material is referenced by Graphing Calculator Help Notes in the margins of the text.
