9780077734251: College Algebra Essentials w/ ALEKS User Guide & 18 Week Access Code

When Julie Miller began writing her successful developmental math series, one of her primary goals was to bridge the gap between preparatory courses and college algebra. For thousands of students, the Miller/O’Neill/Hyde (or M/O/H) series has provided a solid foundation in developmental mathematics. With the Miller College Algebra series, Julie has carried forward her clear, concise writing style; highly effective pedagogical features; and complete author-created technological package to students in this course area.

The main objectives of the college algebra series are three-fold:

• Provide students with a clear and logical presentation of the basic concepts that will prepare them for continued study in mathematics.

• Help students develop logical thinking and problem-solving skills that will benefit them in all aspects of life.

• Motivate students by demonstrating the significance of mathematics in their lives through practical applications.

Product Description:

Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking.

About the Author:

Julie Miller is from Daytona State College, where she has taught developmental and upper-level mathematics courses for 20 years. Prior to her work at Daytona State College, she worked as a software engineer for General Electric in the area of flight and radar simulation. Julie earned a bachelor of science in applied mathematics from Union College in Schenectady, New York, and a master of science in mathematics from the University of Florida. In addition to this textbook, she has authored several course supplements for college algebra, trigonometry, and precalculus, as well as several short works of fiction and nonfiction for young readers.
My father is a medical researcher, and I got hooked on math and science when I was young and would visit his laboratory. I can remember using graph paper to plot data points for his experiments and doing simple calculations. He would then tell me what the peaks and features in the graph meant in the context of his experiment. I think that applications and hands-on experience made math come alive for me and I’d like to see math come alive for my students.
