The highly respected author team of Larson, Hostetler, and Edwards have developed the first college algebra teaching program to integrate a textbook with the Internet. College Algebra: An Internet Approach, designed for courses that are conducted partly or completely online, consists of two fully integrated components: a core worktext packaged with an Internet password and a course-specific web site. Ideal for instructors seeking to increase the level of technology in their courses, for those already using their own web materials in their courses, or for schools with distance-learning students, this unique program offers students a wealth of interactive reinforcement.
