The Tobey/Slater series builds essential skills one at a time by breaking the mathematics down into manageable pieces. This practical “building block” organization makes it easy for readers to understand each topic and gain confidence as they move through each section. The authors provide a “How am I Doing?” guide to give readers constant reinforcement and to ensure that they understand each concept before moving on to the next. With Tobey/Slater, readers have a tutor and study companion with them every step of the way. Basic Concepts; Linear Equations and Inequalities; Equations and Inequalities in Two Variables and Functions; Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities; Polynomials; Rational Expressions and Equations; Rational Exponents and Radicals; Quadratic Equations and Inequalities; The Conic Sections; Additional Properties of Functions; Logarithmic and Exponential Functions. For all readers interested in basic college mathematics.

An easy-to-follow approach to intermediate algebra that features realistic, relevant application problems, non-routine problems drawn from everyday life, and carefully chosen examples and exercises. Includes open-ended problems that invite discussion and exploration.From the Back Cover:
This clear, accessible treatment of mathematics features a building-block approach toward problem solving, realistic and diverse applications, and chapter organizer to help users focus their study and become effective and confident problem solvers. The Putting Your Skills to Work and new chapter-end feature, Math in the Media, present readers with opportunities to utilize critical thinking skills, analyze and interpret data, and problem solve using applied situations encountered in daily life. The Fourth Edition contains additional modeling and real-data coverage. A conceptual approach to functions is introduced early in the book and revisited in Ch. 5, 6, 7, 8, and 10—readers are exposed to a variety of realistic situations where functions are used to explain and record the changes we observe in the world. A discussion of solving linear equations in Chapter 2 now includes coverage of equations with no solution and equations with infinitely many solutions. The sections on determinants and Cramer's rule have been moved out of Chapter 4 into an appendix. This material can be covered with ease after Section 4.3.
