Elayn Martin-Gay believes every student can succeed and that is the motivating force behind her best-selling texts and acclaimed video program. With Martin-Gay you get 100% consistency in voice from text to video!
Prealgebra and Introductory Algebra 2e is appropriate for a 2-sem sequence of Prealgebra (Basic Math with very early introduction to algebra) and Introductory Algebra (aka Elementary Algebra). This text was written to help students effectively make the transition from arithmetic to algebra and provide a strong foundation for success in their next, intermediate algebra course. To reach this goal, Martin-Gay introduces algebraic concepts early and repeats them as she treats traditional arithmetic topics, and then further develops their exposure to elementary-level algebra topics.
The material from this text is also available split out into two separate textbooks, Prealgebra 5e and Introductory Algebra 3e, if you prefer to use split textbooks, rather than one combined textbook for your 2-sem sequence.

Prior to writing textbooks, Elayn developed an acclaimed series of lecture videos to support developmental mathematics students in their quest for success. These highly successful videos originally served as the foundation material for her texts. Today, the videos are specific to each book in the Martin-Gay series. Elayn also originated the Chapter Test Prep Video CD to help students as they prepare for a test - their most “teachable moment!”
Elayn’s experience has made her aware of how busy instructors are and what a difference quality support makes. For this reason, she created the Instructor-to-Instructor video series. These videos provide instructors with suggestions for presenting specific math topics and concepts in basic mathematics, prealgebra, beginning algebra, and intermediate algebra. Seasoned instructors can use them as a source for alternate approaches in the classroom. New or adjunct faculty may find the CDs useful for review.
Her textbooks and acclaimed video program support Elayn's passion of helping every student to succeed.
