Exceptionally clear and accessible, Pat McKeague's best-selling texts offer all the review, drill, and practice students need to develop solid mathematical proficiency and confidence. McKeague's attention to detail, exceptional writing style, and organization of mathematical concepts make teaching enjoyable and learning accessible. The seventh edition of this popular series gives the book a greater emphasis on the connections between equations, tables, and graphs and by incorporating pedagogy that addresses collaborative learning and terminology.

Benefits:

- NEW! Found in the ANNOTATED INSTRUCTOR'S EDITION, the NEW RESOURCE INTEGRATION GUIDE makes this text eminently teachable by offering a chapter-by-chapter glimpse of how the supplements support the learning system in the text, reducing the time-consuming task of choosing activities or graphing calculator exercises and directing students to valuable study aids.
- SECTION OPENERS: Similar to the chapter openers, many of the sections open with an application showing how the material they will cover in the section can be used in real life.
- EARLY COVERAGE OF GRAPHING: The material on graphing equations in two variables starts in Chapter 3.
- CHAPTER OPENERS give students a preview of one of the interesting things covered in the chapter.
- REVIEW PROBLEMS: Starting with Chapter 2, each problem set ends with a set of problems that review material covered previously.
- FACTS FROM GEOMETRY: Many of the important facts from geometry are listed under this heading. In most cases, an example or two accompanies each of the facts to give students a chance to see how topics from geometry are related to the algebra they are learning.
- BLUEPRINT FOR PROBLEM SOLVING offers a detailed outline of the steps needed to successfully attempt application problems. Intended as a guide to problem solving in general, the Blueprint overlays the solution process to all the application problems in the first few chapters of the book. As students become more familiar with problem solving, the steps in the Blueprint are streamlined.
- UNIT ANALYSIS: These problems require students to convert from one unit of measure to another. The method used to accomplish the conversions is the method they will use if they take a chemistry class.
- In each problem set you will find APPLYING THE CONCEPT PROBLEMS. These application problems help students to synthesize material they have learned in the chapter.
- END OF CHAPTER RETROSPECTIVE: Each chapter ends with a group of features (outlined below) that provide a comprehensive reexamination of the chapter and some of the important problems from previous chapters.
- THE CHAPTER SUMMARY lists all main points from the chapter. In the margin, next to each topic being reviewed, is an example that illustrates the type of problem associated with the topic being reviewed.
- CHAPTER REVIEW: Following the Chapter Summary, it contains an extensive set of problems that review all the main topics in the chapter. The chapter reviews contain more problems than the chapter tests.
- CUMULATIVE REVIEW: Starting in Chapter 2, following the chapter review in each chapter is a set of problems that review material from all preceding chapters. This keeps students current with past topics and helps them retain the information they study.
- CHAPTER TEST: A set of problems representative of all the main points of the chapter.
- CHAPTER PROJECTS: One group project for students to work on in class, and one.
- Graphing calculator material integrated through out, helps keeps students up to date with current technology.
- NEW! APPLYING THE CONCEPT PROBLEMS: Have been refined and updated to help students synthesize what they've learned, and reinforce conceptual understanding.
- NEW! NEW APPLICATION PROBLEMS: More realistic word problems give students an idea of how the material they are learning can be applied to real situations.
- NEW! Greater emphasis on VISUALIZATION OF TOPICS: The purpose of this is to give students additional information, in visual form, to help them understand the topics covered.
- NEW! NEW END-OF-CHAPTER PROJECTS: Each chapter ends with a group project and a research project. This material is included to address some of the NCTM and AMATYC Standards.
