This text, written by best-selling developmental mathematics author Pat McKeague, features a more streamlined review of elementary algebra, allowing for earlier coverage of intermediate topics. An early introduction to graphing presents the foundation for a wide variety of graphing problems throughout the text. Early coverage of functions helps students feel comfortable with the many examples and graphs of functions that occur in later chapters. The first ten chapters of this book cove the topics usually found in a college-level algebra course. The last three chapters cover the essential topics from trigonometry. Optional technology sections and integrated throughout text as a way for students to better understand the material being discussed.
