Popular with and respected by students interested in a Modeling Approach, Graphing, or Graphing Calculators, this book incorporates the benefits of technology and the philosophy of the reform movement into intermediate algebra. In keeping with the NCTM and AMATYC standards, the authors introduce the techniques of algebra in the context of simple applications. Early and consistent emphasis on functions and graphing helps to develop mathematical models, and graphing calculators are incorporated wherever possible.
