Summary: Prealgebra, Third Edition, is a significant revision of the second edition, especially with respect to design, an all-new art program, pedagogy, and an enhanced supplements package. Its unique approach, which has been developed and refined over many years, is designed to help students both learn and retain mathematical skills. It is our belief that the third edition will continue to help today's students through pedagogical use of full color and updated applications
Features
  • NEW! Four-color Design and Art Program have been expanded and improved to create a "user friendly" book. Color in the graphical art is used pedagogically and precisely to help the student visualize mathematics. Pg. 333
  • The Five-Step Problem-Solving Process. Introduced early and used consistently throughout. Provides framework and strategy for problem solving: 1) Familiarize, 2) Translate, 3) Solve, 4) Check, 5) State. This is a cornerstone of the Bittinger series. Pg. 61
  • Chapter Openers include real-life application and are enhanced with a Web address for further practice problems and support materials. http://www.mathmax.com. Pg. 1
  • Applications. Extensive research has been done to make the third edition's applications even more realistic and up-to-date. Not only are many of the exercises new to this edition, but many are drawn from the fields of business and economics, life and physical sciences, social sciences, and areas of general interest such as sports and daily life. To encourage students to "see mathematics" around them every day, many applications are enhanced by graphs and drawings similar to those found in today's newspapers and magazines. Pg. 256
  • Margin Problems for immediate reinforcement of concepts. Margin color improved for student use. Pg. 37
  • Exercise Sets grouped by objectives; include reference codes. Number of exercises has been increased. Thinking and Writing Exercises increased by 50%. Pg. 110
  • Calculator Spotlight (optional) includes information and tips on scientific calculators as appropriate. Pg. 112
  • Math Study Skills appear in every chapter and include helpful study guidance and support for student success.
  • Pg. 90
  • Collaborative Learning Exercises provide group learning opportunities for students based on AMATYC standards. Pg. 72
  • Summary and Review Exercises now appear in a two-column format, and continue to provide in-depth coverage of every chapter. Located at the end of each chapter, the Summary and Review Exercises are keyed to objectives in the text and provide an extensive set of review exercises along with a list of important formulas and properties covered in that chapter. Reference codes beside each exercise allow the student to easily return to the section objective being reviewed. Pg. 137
  • Cumulative Reviews that appear after each chapter enhance student retention and skill building. Pg. 141
