Summary: With its complete, interactive, objective-based approach, Basic College Mathematics is the best-seller in this market. The Eighth Edition provides mathematically sound and comprehensive coverage of the topics considered essential in a basic college math course. Furthermore, the Instructor's Annotated Edition features a comprehensive selection of instructor support material. The Aufmann Interactive Method is incorporated throughout the text, ensuring that students int ...show moreeract with and master the concepts as they are presented. This approach is especially important in the context of rapidly growing distance-learning and self-paced laboratory situations.

* Study Tips margin notes provide point-of-use advice and refer students back to the AIM for Success preface for support where appropriate.
* Integrating Technology margin notes provide suggestions for using a calculator in certain situations. For added support and quick reference, a scientific calculator screen is displayed on the inside back cover of the text.
* Aufmann Interactive Method (AIM) Every section objective contains one or more sets of matched-pair examples that encourage students to interact with the text. The first example in each set is completely worked out; the second example, called 'You Try It,' is for the student to work. By solving the You Try It, students practice concepts as they are presented in the text. Complete worked-out solutions to these examples in an appendix enable students to check their solutions and obtain immediate reinforcement of the concept. While similar texts offer only final answers to examples, the Aufmann texts' completesolutions help students identify their mistakes and prevent frustration.
* Integrated learning system organized by objectives. Each chapter begins with a list of learning objectives that form the framework for a complete learning system. The objectives are woven throughout the text (in Exercises, Chapter Tests, and Cumulative Reviews) and also connect the text with the print and multimedia ancillaries. This results in a seamless, easy-to-navigate learning system.
* AIM for Success Student Preface explains what is required of a student to be successful and demonstrates how the features in the text foster student success. AIM for Success can be used as a lesson on the first day of class or as a project for students to complete. The Instructor's Resource Manual offers suggestions for teaching this lesson. Study Tip margin notes throughout the text also refer students back to the Student Preface for advice.
* Prep Tests at the beginning of each chapter help students prepare for the upcoming material by testing them on prerequisite material learned in preceding chapters. The answers to these questions can be found in the Answer Appendix, along with a reference (except for chapter 1) to the objective from which the question was taken, which encourages students who miss a question to review the objective.
* Extensive use of applications that use real source data shows students the value of mathematics as a real-life tool.
* Focus on Problem Solving section at the end of each chapter introduces students to various problem-solving strategies. Students are encouraged to write their own strategies and draw diagrams in order to find solutions. These strategies are integrated throughout the text. Several open-ended problems are included, resulting in more than one right answer and strengthening problem-solving skills.
* Unique Verbal/Mathematical connection is achieved by simultaneously introducing a verbal phrase with a mathematical operation. Exercises following the presentation of a new operation require that students make a connection between a phrase and a mathematical process.
* Projects and Group Activities at the end of each chapter offer ideas for cooperative learning. Ideal as extra-credit assignments, these projects cover various aspects of mathematics, including the use of calculators, collecting data from the Internet, data analysis, and extended applications.
* Eduspace helps instructors take the proven Aufmann Interactive Method to the next level. Eduspace provides instructors with online courses and content in multiple disciplines. By pairing the widely recognized tools of Blackboard with high-quality, text-specific content from Houghton Mifflin, Eduspace makes it easy for instructors to create all or part of a course online. Homework exercises, quizzes, tests, tutorials, and supplemental study materials all come ready to use. Instructors can choose to use the content as is, modify it, or even add their own. Students using Eduspace can review and reinforce concepts with interactive tutorials, prepare for tests using practice exercises, and access all material 24 hours a day.
* The Instructor's Annotated Edition features a reduced version of the student text with point-of-use instructor resources in the margins. These include Instructor Notes, In-Class Examples, Concept Checks, Discuss the Concepts, Optional Student Activities, Quick Quizzes, Answers to Writing Exercises, and Suggested Assignments, as well as lists of new or review Vocabulary/Symbols/Formulas/Rules/Properties/Equations. Answers to all exercises are also provided.
