The highly respected author team of Larson, Hostetler, and Edwards have developed the first college algebra teaching program to integrate a textbook with the Internet. College Algebra: An Internet Approach, designed for courses that are conducted partly or completely online, consists of two fully integrated components: a core worktext packaged with an Internet password and a course-specific web site. Ideal for instructors seeking to increase the level of technology in their courses, for those already using their own web materials in their courses, or for schools with distance-learning students, this unique program offers students a wealth of interactive reinforcement.

  • A consistent, interactive worktext format includes Chapter Openers with real-life applications and data; Explanations of Key Concepts; carefully chosen Examples, with blank fill-ins to highlight a concept, technique, or problem-solving method; and Try-Its!, which follow every example with a similar problem for students to solve.
  • An Online Chapter Features checklist at the beginning of each text chapter guides students to the web-based Syllabus, Chapter Pre-Test, Chapter Review Exercises, Chapter Post-Test, Chapter Project, and Glossary.
  • An Online Study Feature opening each section of the text helps students locate the web-based Try It! Solutions, Guided Examples, Synthesis Examples, and Group Activities.
  • Online Section Exercises at the end of each text section list all exercises by topic and direct students to the web site for the complete set of exercises to be worked out.
  • Online Exercise Help following the section exercises in the text guides students to the web site for Detailed Solutions to all odd-numbered exercises; Tutorial Exercises for further skill-building practice; and a unique online chapter-specific Chat Room for synchronous interaction with peers or instructors.
  • A special web icon prompts students to access Animations and Editable Graphs that illuminate many concepts.
  • Technology and graphing calculator use is integrated throughout the text as a tool for visualization, investigation, and verification. A web icon encourages students to use the TI graphing calculator emulator on the web site.
  • Chapter Tests follow most chapters and four Cumulative Tests, all with answers available in the back of the text and on the web site, provide a useful self-assessment tool.
  • An Instructor's Web Subscription, downloadable Syllabus Builder Program, and online Course Management tools are available free to instructors upon adoption.
