do not prefer an early introduction to graphing. For those who do prefer graphing early, instructors can use the "Connections to Graphing" sections together where they prefer to introduce graphing. A section on geometry appears in "Chapter R" for instructors who look for such content in Beginning Algebra. Applications that incorporate geometric concepts may also be found throughout the text. Chapter R also contains a section on study skills. This section provides easy to digest tips (in list format) for course success. The authors have crafted the exercise sets with the idea of infusing review. In each set of practice exercises, instructors will find a set of exercises that help students to review concepts previously learned, and in this way, students will retain more of what they have learned. The exercise sets also contain "translation" exercises which provide students with an opportunity to convert from English phrases to mathematical symbols and from mathematical symbols to English phrases, thus helping students to strengthen their command of mathematical language. Moreover, the applications found in the exercise sets are based on real-world data, which helps to promote students' interest in mathematics, and in turn, may serve to motivate and engage them more effectively. Other features include mid-chapter reviews and classroom activities. The classroom activities are of special value, in that through their use, students may begin to take greater ownership over their learning. The classroom activities were designed to be quick activities students could perform in class (either individually, or collaboratively in groups). In short, the Miller/O'Neill Beginning Algebra text offers enriching applications, a high level of readability, and excellent opportunities for students to become actively engaged in their exploration of mathematics.
