Hirsch and Goodman offer a mathematically sound, rigorous text to those instructors who believe students should be challenged. The text prepares students for future study in higher-level courses by gradually building students' confidence without sacrificing rigor. To help students move beyond the "how" of algebra (computational proficiency) to the "why" (conceptual understanding), the authors introduce topics at an elementary level and return to them at increasing levels of complexity. Their gradual introduction of concepts, rules, and definitions through a wealth of illustrative examples -- both numerical and algebraic--helps students compare and contrast related ideas and understand the sometimes-subtle distinctions among a variety of situations. This author team carefully prepares students to succeed in higher-level mathematics.

Lewis Hirsch (Ph.D., Pennsylvania State University) currently teaches in the mathematics department at Rutgers University. Dr. Hirsch teaches both developmental mathematics and higher level courses such as college algebra and pre-calculus. His experiences in the classroom make him committed to properly preparing students in lower-level courses so they can succeed in for credit courses, and this is reflected in the way he writes his textbooks.Review:
"Once we had a group of students who worked their way through the Hirsch/Goodman series, complaints about a gap between developmental and college level mathematics essentially disappeared. Students transitioned much more easily and, now, students who come to college algebra through our sequence succeed at rates higher then students who had no need of remediation."
"Great problem sets! Rigorous and flexible enough to work with various teaching styles."
