For courses in elementary and intermediate algebra.
Objective: Visualizing the Concepts
One of the hallmarks of the Bittinger Developmental Math program is objective-based learning. In Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Graphs and Models, Fifth Edition, the authors place special emphasis on conceptual understanding, modeling, and visualization. Their goal is to help students “see the math” and learn algebra by making connections between the math and real-world applications. For the Fifth Edition, the authors have made many updates to the text and applications, as well as to the accompanying resources. These include important enhancements to the MyMathLab course, new Active Learning Figures, and the creation of a new interactive video program, To-the-Point Objective Videos, associated with a new student workbook, MyMathGuide: Notes, Practice, and Video Path.
Also available with MyMathLab
MyMathLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them absorb course material and understand difficult concepts. The text and MyMathLab course form a tightly integrated program with all new To-the-Point Objective Videos, Active Learning Figures, and MyMathGuide workbook.

Since 1968, he has been employed at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis, and is now Professor Emeritus of Mathematics Education. Professor Bittinger has authored over 190 publications on topics ranging from basic mathematics to algebra and trigonometry to applied calculus. He received his BA in mathematics from Manchester College and his PhD in mathematics education from Purdue University. Special honors include Distinguished Visiting Professor at the United States Air Force Academy and his election to the Manchester College Board of Trustees from 1992 to 1999. Professor Bittinger has also had the privilege of speaking at many mathematics conventions, most recently giving a lecture entitled "Baseball and Mathematics." His hobbies include hiking in Utah, baseball, golf, and bowling. In addition, he also has an interest in philosophy and theology, in particular, apologetics. Professor Bittinger currently lives in Carmel, Indiana, with his wife Elaine. He has two grown and married sons, Lowell and Chris, and four granddaughters.
David Ellenbogen has taught math at the college level for nearly 30 years, spending most of that time in the Massachusetts and Vermont community college systems, where he has served on both curriculum and developmental math committees. He has taught at St. Michael's College and The University of Vermont. Professor Ellenbogen has been active in the American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges (AMATYC) since 1985, having served on its Developmental Mathematics Committee and as a delegate. He has been a member of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) since 1979. He has authored dozens of texts on topics ranging from prealgebra to calculus and has delivered lectures on the use of language in mathematics. Professor Ellenbogen received his bachelor's degree in mathematics from Bates College and his master’s degree in community college mathematics education from The University of Massachusetts—Amherst. In his spare time, he enjoys playing piano, biking, hiking, skiing, and volunteer work. He currently serves on the boards of the Vermont Sierra Club and the Vermont Bicycle Pedestrian Coalition. He has two sons, Monroe and Zachary.
Barbara Johnson has a BS in mathematics from Bob Jones University and a MS in math from Clemson University.
