KEY MESSAGE:Gary Rockswold and Terry Kriegerfocus on teaching algebra in context, giving students realistic and convincing answers to the perennial question, ''When will I ever use this?'' The authors' consistent use of real data, graphs, and tables throughout the examples and exercise sets gives meaning to the numbers and equations as students encounter them. This new edition further enhances Rockswold and Krieger's focus on math in the real world with a new features and updated applications to engage today's students. KEY TOPICS: Introduction to Algebra, Linear Equations and inequalities, Graphing Equations, Systems of Linear Equations in Two Variables, Polynomials and Exponents, Factoring Polynomials and Solving Equations, Introduction to Rational Expressions, Linear Functions and Models, Matrices and Systems of Linear Equations, Radical Expressions and Functions, Quadratic Functions and Equations, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Conic Sections, Sequences and Series MARKET: For all readers interested in algebra.
