KEY MESSAGE:Gary Rockswold and Terry Kriegerfocus on teaching algebra in context, giving students realistic and convincing answers to the perennial question, ldquo;When will I ever use this?rdquo; The authorsrsquo; consistent use of real data, graphs, and tables throughout the examples and exercise sets gives meaning to the numbers and equations as students encounter them. This new edition further enhances Rockswold and Kriegerrsquo;s focus on math in the real world with a new features and updated applications to engage todayrsquo;s students. KEY TOPICS: Real Numbers and Algebra, Linear Functions and Models, Linear Equations and Inequalities, Systems Of Linear Equations, Polynomial Expressions and Functions, Rational Expressions and Functions, Radical Expressions and Functions, Quadratic Functions and Equations, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Conic Sections, Sequences and Series MARKET: For all readers interested in Algebra.
Note: There are Cumulative Review exercises after every chapter beginning with Chapter 2, and Checking Basic Concepts exercises after every other section.
