### Summary

With a strong emphasis on mathematics of the real world, this text unites the concepts of elementary algebra and intermediate algebra in one volume.

The content, pedagogy, and design of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra are based on those of the successful copyright 2000 Dugopolski algebra series.

A midtext diagnostic review contains exercises based on the material contained in the first half of the text. The exercises are organized by chapter and section so that students can identify any chapters and sections that need further review.

Features :

• Midtext Diagnostic Review
• Margin notes
• Exercises
• End of chapter Wrap-up
• NetTutor is a revolutionary new web-based learning environment for the live dissemination of mathematical content.
• Chapter Opener
• Math at Work
• Real Data Applications
• ALEKS
