About the Author:

Michael Sullivan III is a Professor of mathematics at Joliet Junior College.  He holds graduate degrees from DePaul University in both mathematics and economics.  Mike is a very successful textbook author, having co-authored the following texts

  • College Algebra Enhanced with Graphing Utilities 4e (CR2006)
  • Algebra and Trigonometry Enhanced with Graphing Utilities 4e (CR2006)

 

His time in the classroom and extensive authoring experience has given him an excellent foundation to write a successful introductory Statistics text: Statistics: Informed Decisions Using Data 2e (2007) and a briefer version of this text, Fundamentals of Statistics, 1/e (2005).

 

Because Mike’s passion is making math more exciting and accessible to students, he is coauthoring a developmental math series for Prentice Hall that will be published in 2007. These titles will include:

  • Elementary Algebra (CR2007)
  • Intermediate Algebra (CR2007)
  • Elementary and Intermediate Algebra (CR2007)
