Feat moreures

  • Chapter Opener Each chapter begins with the discussion of a real-world situation that uses mathematics from the chapter. Examples and exercises that relate back to the opener are included in the chapter.
  • Graphing Calculator Discussions Optional graphing calculator discussions have been included in the text. They are clearly marked by graphing calculator icons so that they can be easily skipped if desired. Students who do not use a graphing calculator can still benefit from the technology discussions, as well as from the calculator generated graphs occurring in the text. The graphing calculator is used as a tool to support and enhance algebraic conclusions, not to make conclusions.
  • For Thought Each exercise set is preceded by a set of ten true/false questions that review the basic concepts in the section, help check student understanding before beginning the exercises, and offer opportunities for writing and/or discussion. The answers to all For Thought exercises are included in the back of the student edition.
  • Writing/Discussion and Cooperative Learning Exercises These exercises deepen students' understanding by giving them the opportunity to express mathematical ideas both in writing and to their classmates during small group or team discussions.
  • Linking Concepts Located at the end of nearly every exercise set, these multi-part exercises and explorations can be used for individual or group work. The idea of this feature is to use concepts from the current section along with concepts from preceding sections (or chapters) to solve problems that illustrate the links among various concepts. Some parts of these questions are open-ended and require more thought than standard skill-building exercises. Answers are given in the Instructor's Edition only, and full solutions can be found in the Instructor's Solutions Manual.
  • Chapter Review Exercises These exercises are designed to give students a comprehensive review of the chapter without reference to individual sections and prepare students for the chapter test.
  • Chapter Test The problems in the Chapter Test measure students' readiness for a typical one-hour classroom test. Instructors may also use them as a model for their own end-of-chapter tests. Students should be aware that their in-class test could vary from the Chapter Test due to different emphasis placed on the topics by individual instructors.
  • Tying It All Together Found at the end of most chapters, these exercises help students review selected concepts from the present and prior chapters, and require students to integrate multiple concepts and skills.
  • Index of Applications The many applications contained within the text are listed in the Index of Applications. The applications are page referenced and grouped by subject matter. less
