Excellent pedagogy and interesting problems are the key to Bello's developmental mathematics texts. Each chapter begins with a pre-test that lets students determine their own strengths and weaknesses. Within chapters, every section opens with a set of numbered objectives, each followed by a related example and problem. All subsequent exercises are also keyed to the objectives and accompanied by applications to show students how their math skills can be used. Review questions and diagnostic tests at the end of every chapter help students gauge their own progress. The text's clear, structured format gives students ample review at every step and helps them find pertinent information wherever they encounter difficulties.About the Author:
Ignacio Bello attended the University of South Florida (USF), where he earned a B.A. and M.A. in Mathematics. He began teaching at USF in 1967, and in 1971 became a member of the Faculty at Hillsborough Community College (HCC) and Coordinator of the Math and Sciences Department. Professor Bello instituted the USF/HCC remedial program, a program that started with 17 students taking Intermediate Algebra and grew to more than 800 students with courses covering Developmental English, Reading, and Mathematics. Aside from the present series of books (Basic College Mathematics, Introductory Algebra, and Intermediate Algebra), Professor Bello is the author of more than 40 textbooks including Topics in Contemporary Mathematics (ninth edition), College Algebra, Algebra and Trigonometry, and Business Mathematics. Many of these textbooks have been translated into Spanish. With Professor Fran Hopf, Bello started the Algebra Hotline, the only live, college-level television help program in Florida. Professor Bello is featured in three television programs on the award-winning Education Channel. He has helped create and develop the USF Mathematics Department Website (http://mathcenter.usf.edu), which serves as support for the Finite Math, College Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, and Introductory Algebra, and CLAST classes at USF. You can see Professor Bello’s presentations and streaming videos at this website, as well as at http://www.ibello.com. Professor Bello is a member of the MAA and AMATYC and has given many presentations regarding the teaching of mathematics at the local, state, and national levels.
