Tussy and Gustafson's fully integrated learning process is designed to expand students' reasoning abilities and teach them how to read, write, and think mathematically. In this text, the introduction of coordinate graphing appears early, in Chapter 3. The authors build the strong mathematical foundation necessary to give students confidence to apply their newly acquired skills in further mathematics courses, at home, or on the job.

About the Author:
: Alan Tussy teaches all levels of developmental mathematics at Citrus College in Glendora, CA. He has written nine math books-a paperback series and a hard-cover series. An extraordinary author, he is dedicated to his students' success, relentlessly meticulous, creative, and a visionary who maintains a keen focus on his students' greatest challenges. Alan received his Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from the University of Redlands and his Master of Science degree in Applied Mathematics from California State University, Los Angeles. He has taught up and down the curriculum from prealgebra to differential equations. He is currently focusing on the developmental math courses. Professor Tussy is a member of the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges.
"I like the Tussy/Gustafson model of using short, concise descriptions, blue boxes for rules, and lots of examples to demonstrate the new concepts. My current experience with Martin-Gay is that students complained of being unable to learn from the textbook. They felt that the explanations were not easy to follow and that the examples 'skipped too many steps.' Tussy/Gustafson's 'red reasons' in every example were very helpful, easy to understand, easy to follow, no skips!"

"I believe the Tussy/Gustafson [text] provides a better variety of applications than other texts I am familiar with, and I am particularly impressed with the drawings that accompany many of the applications problems."
