The goal of Intermediate Algebra: Concepts and Applications, 7e is to help today’s students learn and retain mathematical concepts by preparing them for the transition from “skills-oriented” intermediate algebra courses to more “concept-oriented” college-level mathematics courses, as well as to make the transition from “skill” to “application.” This edition continues to bring your students a best-selling text that incorporates the five-step problem-solving process, real-world applications, proven pedagogy, and an accessible writing style. The Bittinger/Ellenbogen series has consistently provided teachers and students with the tools needed to succeed in developmental mathematics. This edition has an even stronger focus on vocabulary and conceptual understanding as well as making the mathematics more accessible to students. Among the features added are new Concept Reinforcement exercises, Student Notes that help students avoid common mistakes, and Study Summaries that highlight the most important concepts and terminology from each chapter.
Algebra and Problem Solving; Graphs, Functions, and Linear Equations; Systems of Equations and Problem Solving; Inequalities and Problem Solving; Polynomials and Polynomial Functions; Rational Expressions, Equations, and Functions; Exponents and Radicals; Quadratic Functions and Equations; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Conic Sections; Sequences, Series, and the Binomial Theorem
For all readers interested in intermediate algebra.

This text is designed to provide an interactive learning experience between the learner and the exposition, annotated examples, art, and the exercises you will find within. The first book on the market to introduce a "learn as you go" approach by including practice exercises in the margins of the text, this best seller uses real-data applications to help apply mathematics to your everyday life. Concepts and skills learned as you progress through the text are revisited again and again in the form of cumulative reviews, skill maintenance exercises, and synthesis exercises to help you retain what you have learned and see how it all relates together.About the Author:
