Elayn Martin-Gay, University of New Orleans
An award-winning instructor and best-selling author, Elayn Martin-Gay has taught mathematics at the University of New Orleans for more than 25 years. Her numerous teaching awards include the local University Alumni Association’s Award for Excellence in Teaching, and Outstanding Developmental Educator at University of New Orleans, presented by the Louisiana Association of Developmental Educators.
Prentice Hall is pleased to announce the new Third Editions of Basic College Mathematics , Introductory Algebra , Intermediate Algebra , and Algebra A Combined Approach and two new first editions, Basic College Mathematics with Early Integers , and Developmental Mathematics . Elayn Martin-Gay also authors a best-selling ©2005 hardback series in developmental mathematics.
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 CDs to help students during their most “teachable moment” ---as they prepare for a test.
Elayn’s experience has made her aware of how busy instructors are and what a difference quality supports make. For this reason, she created the Instructor-to-Instructor video series. These videos provide instructors with suggestions for presenting specific math topic 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. They are a great resource for suggestions regarding areas they may wish to emphasize, or common trouble areas students experience, that instructors my wish to highlight.
With her textbooks series, the Chapter Test Prep Video Cd, and CD Lecture series, Elayn has sought to put success within the reach of every student and instructor.
