Kaufmann and Schwitters have built this text's reputation on clear and concise exposition, numerous examples, and plentiful problem sets. This traditional text consistently reinforces the following common thread: learn a skill; use the skill to help solve equations; and then apply what you have learned to solve application problems. This simple, straightforward approach has helped many students grasp and apply fundamental problem solving skills necessary for future mathematics courses in an easy-to-read format. The Eighth Edition of INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA includes new and updated problems, revised content based on reviewer feedback and a new function in iLrn. This enhanced iLrn homework functionality was designed specifically for Kaufmann/Schwitters' users. Textbook-specific practice problems have been added to iLrn to provide additional, algorithmically-generated practice problems, along with useful support and assistance to solve the problems for students.

Jerome E. Kaufmann received his Ed.D. in Mathematics Education from the University of Virginia. Now a retired Professor of Mathematics from Western Illinois University, he has more than 30 years of teaching experience at the high school, two-year, and four-year college levels. He is the author of 45 college mathematics textbooks.Review:
"The quantity and quality of problems is excellent! There is also a nice range of problems that include basic, straightforward applications; as well as challenging problems that require students to synthesize ideas from several sections. I like the Kaufmann/Schwitters text so much that I've not even looked at another text lately."
"This textbook is one of the most pedagogically sound texts I have seen. The ordering of topics is logical and sequential, which was one of the biggest draws for our department in the selection of the text."
