Summary: New Features
NEW! Problem Recognition Exercises Developmental math students are sometimes conditioned into algorithmic thinking to the point where they want to automatically apply various algorithms to solve problems, whether it is meaningful or not. These exercises were built to decondition students from falling into that trap. Carefully crafted by the authors, the exercises focus on the situations where...show more students most often get "mixed-up." Working the Problem Recognition Exercises, students become conditioned to Stop, Think, and Recall what method is most appropriate to solve each problem in the set.
NEW! Skill Practice exercises follow immediately after the examples in the text. Answers are provided so students can check their work. By utilizing these exercises, students can test their understanding of the various problem-solving techniques given in the examples.
NEW! The section-ending Practice Exercises are newly revised, with even more core exercises appearing per exercise set. Many of the exercises are grouped by section objective, so students can refer back to content within the section if they need some assistance in completing homework. Review Problems appear at the beginning of most Practice Exercise Sets to help students improve their study habits and to improve their long-term retention of concepts previously introduced.
NEW! Mixed Exercises are found in many of the Practice Exercise sets. The Mixed Exercises contain no references to objectives. In this way, students are expected to work independently without prompting --which is representative of how they would work through a test or exam.
NEW! Study Skills Exercises appear at the beginning of the Practice Exercises, where appropriate. They are designed to help students learn techniques to improve their study habits including exam preparation, note taking, and time management.
NEW! The Chapter Openers now include a variety of puzzles that may be used to motivate lecture. Each puzzle is based on key vocabulary terms or concepts that are introduced in the chapter.
