College Algebra: Concepts and Models provides a solid understanding of algebra, using modeling techniques and real-world data applications. The text is effective for students who will continue on in mathematics, as well as for those who will end their mathematics education with college algebra. Instructors may also take advantage of optional discovery and exploration activities that use technology and are integrated throughout the text. A brief version of this text, College Algebra: A Concise Course, provides a shorter version of the text without the introductory review.
