The Rockswold/Krieger algebra series fosters conceptual understanding by using relevant applications and visualization to show students why math matters. It answers the common question, "When will I ever use this?" Rockswold teaches students the math in context, rather than including the applications at the end of the presentation. By seamlessly integrating meaningful applications that include real data and supporting visuals (graphs, tables, charts, colors, and diagrams), students are able to see how math impacts their lives as they learn the concepts. The authors believe this approach deepens conceptual understanding and better prepares students for future math courses and life. The new All-in-One "Developmental Mathematics" program offers everything needed to teach Prealgebra, Beginning Algebra, and Intermediate Algebra in one easy-to-use solution. The program includes a complete MyMathLab course with full eText (one Integrated Course Sequence MyMathLab code for all three courses!) and two print-on-demand options:

  • Complete All-in-One textbook with all chapters, or customized text with selected chapters, in an a la Carte format
  • "Worksheets "with all chapters or customized with selected chapters
Instructors can set it up in two easy steps: 1.) Create the MyMathLab course, and 2.) Choose the print option!
