Intermediate Algebra : Concepts and Applications - 7th edition

Intermediate Algebra : Concepts and Applications (ISBN10: 0321233867; ISBN13: 9780321233868)
ISBN13: 978-0321233868
ISBN10: 0321233867

Summary: The goal of Intermediate Algebra: Concepts and Applications, 7e is to help today's students learn and retain mathematical concepts by preparing them for the transition from ''skills-oriented'' intermediate algebra courses to more ''concept-oriented'' college-level mathematics courses, as well as to make the transition from ''skill'' to ''application.'' This edition continues to bring your students a best-selling text that incorporates the five-step problem-solving pr
ocess, real-world applications, proven pedagogy, and an accessible writing style. The Bittinger/Ellenbogen series has consistently provided teachers and students with the tools needed to succeed in developmental mathematics. This edition has an even stronger focus on vocabulary and conceptual understanding as well as making the mathematics more accessible to students. Among the features added are new Concept Reinforcement exercises, Student Notes that help students avoid common mistakes, and Study Summaries that highlight the most important concepts and terminology from each chapter.

Features
  • Connecting the Concepts feature highlights the importance of connecting concepts and invites students to pause and check that they understand the ''big picture.'' This helps ensure that students understand how concepts work together in several sections at once. For example, students are alerted to shifts made from solving equations to writing equivalent expressions. The pacing of this feature helps students increase their comprehension and maximize their retention of key concepts.
  • Chapter Openers Each chapter opens with a list of the sections to be covered and a real-life application that includes a testimonial from a person in that field to show how integral mathematics is in solving real problems. Real data is often used in these applications as well as in many other exercises and ''on the job'' examples (like those that students might find in the workforce) to increase student interest.
  • Aha! In many exercise sets, students will see an Aha! icon. This icon indicates to students that there is a simpler way to complete the exercise without going through a lengthy computation. It's then up to the student to discover that simpler approach. The Aha! icon is used the first time a new insight can be used on a particular type of exercise. After that first time, it's up to the student to determine if and when that particular insight can be reused.
  • Optional Collaborative Corners give students the opportunity to work as a group to solve problems or to perform specially designed activities. There are approximately two Collaborative Corners per chapter, each one appearing after the appropriate exercise set.
  • Optional Technology Connections appear throughout each chapter to help students visualize, through the use of technology, a concept that they have just learned. This feature is reinforced in many exercise sets through exercises marked with a graphing calculator icon.
  • 5-Step Problem-Solving Process A hallmark feature to all Bittinger Texts, the 5-step problem-solving process is introduced early in the text and then modeled in every application problem throughout the rest of the text, providing students with a foundation for starting and completing the problem-solving process.
  • Study Skills These remarks, located in the margins near the start of each section, provide suggestions for successful study habits and can be extended to courses other than algebra. Ranging from ideas for better time management to how to prepare for tests, these comments can be useful to even experience college students.
