College Algebra: Concepts and Models was the first college algebra text to be developed specifically for students who may not be proceeding on to calculus or upper-level math courses, but who need a solid understanding of algebra for their social sciences and liberal arts majors. It encourages student understanding of algebra through the use of modeling techniques and real-data applications. Optional use of technology is carefully integrated throughout the text.
