Timmons, Johnson, and McCook provide an applied text for intermediate algebra students not continuing in math and science. Students are encouraged to develop and test mathematical models in a variety of real-world applications such as personal finance and home decorating. The use of technology is introduced, although not required, through end-of-chapter lab exercises.

"The mathematical skills and thinking skills learned by students who successfully completed this course with this text will [make them] very well prepared to enter the workforce."
"The progression of topics is excellent. The presentation of topics is unthreatening, user-friendly, and concise with excellent examples to support concepts and special cases. Applications were well chosen to prepare students with practical skills for employment."
"We adopted this book because it gave a heavy application approach to mathematics without overwhelming the student in 'traditional' algebra. It has been a huge success, as the number of students successfully passing this course has increased over the previous course."
"I believe that their [the author's] goals are in line with the goals for the national mathematical organizations, our state's goals, the course goals, and our class goals. The students get an extensive covering of applications, with enough algebraic content to balance the course out nicely."
"One of my favorite ideas of this book is the continual stressing of linear functions. This book definitely 'overkills' the concept of linear equations and functions, and that's a good thing. By the time the students finish the course, they have a firm grasp of this topic and how to use it, which gives them the flexibility and confidence to handle other functions in a similar manner."
