This book bridges the gap between traditional and reform approaches to algebra encouraging users to see mathematics in context. It presents fewer topics in greater depth, prioritizing data analysis as a foundation for mathematical modeling, and emphasizing the verbal, numerical, graphical and symbolic representations of mathematical concepts as well as connecting mathematics to real life situations drawn from the users' majors.

About the Author:

The late James Stewart received his M.S. from Stanford University and his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. He did research at the University of London and was influenced by the famous mathematician George Polya at Stanford University. Stewart was most recently Professor of Mathematics at McMaster University, and his research field was harmonic analysis. Stewart was the author of a best-selling calculus textbook series published by Cengage Learning, including CALCULUS, CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, and CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS, as well as a series of precalculus texts.

Review:

"I'm excited. I want to do all of the explorations now. When can I get my copy to teach with?"

"It's a college algebra text that is built on real life examples and concepts. Students learn through using real data, hands on activities, and sections that slowly guide them to extensions of the previous concept. The explorations are wonderful."

"[This book] gets the students to think beyond the manipulations and see that the mathematics they are learning really does have a purpose."

"...These are exactly the type of examples that I look for when I review college algebra books for adoption! The applications included are also similar to problems discussed in prominent research articles in mathematics education..."

"Very promising. I like how the exercises are categorized (Fundamentals, Think About It, Skills, Contexts). I also like how material is not used and then forgotten but is used in upcoming sections..."
