Elayn Martin-Gay'sdevelopmental math textbooks and video resources are motivated by her firm belief that every student can succeed. Martin-Gay's focus on the student shapes her clear, accessible writing, inspires her constant pedagogical innovations, and contributes to the popularity and effectiveness of her video resources. This revision of Martin-Gay's algebra series continues this focus on students and what they need to be successful. Martin-Gay also strives to provide the highest level of instructor and adjunct support. KEY TOPICS: Review of Real Numbers; Equations and Problem Solving; Graphing; Systems of Linear Equations; Exponents and Polynomials; Factoring Polynomials; Rational Expressions; More on Functions and Graphs; Inequalities and Absolute Value; Radicals, Rational Exponents, and Complex Numbers; Quadratic Equations and Functions; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Conic Sections; Sequences, Series, and the Binomial Theorem MARKET: for all readers interested in algebra.
