This text provides a supportive environment to help students successfully learn the content of a standard algebra and trigonometry course. By incorporating interactive learning techniques, the Aufmann team helps students to better understand concepts, focus their studying habits, and obtain greater mathematical success.

Many new components added to this edition of College Algebra and Trigonometry have been designed to help students diagnose and review weak algebra skills. Prerequisite review is include in the textbook (and supporting materials) so that instructors can spend less time covering review material and students can still fill in the gaps in their mathematical knowledge.
