Thomas Hungerford's CONTEMPORARY COLLEGE ALGEBRA is known and well respected for its thorough integration of the graphing calculator, clear writing, and outstanding applications problems. Many adopters laud the use of real data in examples and exercises, and they appreciate the flexibility of the book's organization. This market-leading text is now accompanied by an outstanding array of innovative supplements that facilitate teaching and enhance learning, such as iLrn--a robust suite of online course management, testing, and tutorial resources for instructor and student, with vMentor live online tutoring. The text also includes a free Interactive Video Skillbuilder CD-ROM with MathCue, and a Book Companion Web Site featuring online graphing calculator resources.
