A worktext format for basic college math or arithmetic courses including lecture-based, self-paced, and modular classes.

John Tobey and Jeff Slater are experienced developmental math authors and active classroom teachers. The Tobey approach focuses on building skills one at a time by breaking math down into manageable pieces. This building block organization is a practical approach to basic math skill development that makes it easier for students to understand each topic, gaining confidence as they move through each section. Knowing students crave feedback, Tobey has enhanced the new edition with a "How am I Doing?" guide to math success. The combination of continual reinforcement of basic skill development, ongoing feedback and a fine balance of exercises makes the fifth edition of Tobey/Slater Basic College Mathematics even more practical and accessible.

**Features**

- Chapter Organizers neatly summarize the chapter topics, procedures and corresponding examples all in one place to simplify chapter review.
- Develop Your Study Skills boxes throughout remind and encourage students to hone these all-important study skills.
- A Mathematics Blueprint for Problem Solving provides a consistent and interactive outline that helps students organize their approach to problem solving. The Blueprint helps students know where to begin, and how to understand the process, plan subsequent steps, and successfully solve applications.
- Problem Solving is thorough, integrated throughout and easy to follow with key steps highlighted with the pedagogical use of color.
- Putting Your Skills to Work applications provide opportunities to solve real world situations using newly mastered math skills. Students utilize critical thinking skills, analyze and interpret data and solve using situations encountered in daily life.
- Math in the Media exercises offer students yet another opportunity to see how the math they are learning applies to the world around them.
- Exercises are paired and graded (easy to more difficult) and each exercise set includes Verbal and Writing Skills and Mixed Practice exercises.
- A built-in solutions manual offers worked out solutions to the practice problems and reinforces the problem solving process.
