Basic College Mathematics with Early Integers is a new addition to the Martin-Gay worktext series. This text is designed for a 1-semester basic math courses in which an early introduction of integers is desired. Integers are introduced in chapter 2, and students continue to work with them throughout the text. This gives students ample opportunity to practice operations with integers and to become comfortable with them, prior to being introduced to algebra in chapter 7, Equations.
The Whole Numbers; Integers and Introduction to Variables; Fractions; Decimals; Ratio, Proportion, and Measurement; Percent; Statistics and Probability; Equations; Geometry; Tables; The Bigger Picture; Exponents and Polynomials
For all readers interested in basic college mathematics.
