In this breakthrough text, authors Holtfrerich and Haughn speak as teachers, offering passionate yet patient emphasis on concepts, but not at the expense of teaching algebraic skills. The authors build on and connect topics by discussing the concepts with students in a unique yet logical way. Speaking to students as if they were having a discussion with them in the classroom, the authors use common, everyday applications that make sense to the average student to demonstrate concepts. The authors' approach about where and when topics should be covered is unique, as is the capstone chapter on Modeling/Data Analysis.

"Â...the author has written the text in easy to understand detail. It is not only student friendly, but mathematically correct."
"I am definitely excited about this bookÂ...Thanks for the opportunity to review. Please keep me attuned to how this project is going. IÂ'm really excited about the potential here."
"I really like the conversational style of the text. many places the explanations are done the way I do them in class."
"I am often concerned about the formality of math texts that are used by a wide segment of the student population such as college algebra. When I find it difficult to follow the language of a text on a topic I am quite familiar with, I worry about a student even standing a chance of understanding it. These authors have found a middle ground between informal and formal language."
