Lewis Hirsch (Ph.D., Pennsylvania State University) currently teaches in the mathematics department at Rutgers University. Dr. Hirsch teaches both developmental mathematics and higher level courses such as college algebra and pre-calculus. His experiences in the classroom make him committed to properly preparing students in lower-level courses so they can succeed in for credit courses, and this is reflected in the way he writes his textbooks.
Dr. Arthur Goodman (Ph.D., Yeshiva University) currently teaches in the mathematics department at Queens College of the City University of New York. Dr. Goodman takes great pride in the mathematical accuracy and in depth explanation in all of his textbooks.
"Once we had a group of students who worked their way through the Hirsch/Goodman series, complaints about a gap between developmental and college level mathematics essentially disappeared. Students transitioned much more easily and, now, students who come to college algebra through our sequence succeed at rates higher then students who had no need of remediation."
"Great problem sets! Rigorous and flexible enough to work with various teaching styles."
