When learning mathematics, have you ever asked yourself, "When am I ever going to use this?" If you have--and even if you haven't--this book will help you learn the mathematical concepts behind the procedures, and discover how to apply quantitative thinking in your daily lives. COLLEGE ALGEBRA: A MAKE IT REAL APPROACH doesn't simply "wrap" a real-world situation around a mathematical concept or procedure. Instead, you'll be immersed in familiar real-world contexts--from parking rates and the higher winter incidence of the flu to Egyptian pyramids--that will help you understand mathematical ideas intuitively. One student commented, "It's like having the teacher standing over my shoulder explaining things to me." With this text as your guide, your comment about college algebra will likely be, "Yes, I get it!"

Trey Cox's goal for mathematics education is to help students see the relevance of mathematics in their lives and to learn the meaning and purpose of the "big" mathematical ideas.

He believes strongly in the benefits of having students explain their thinking and understanding of concepts, both orally and in writing, and in helping students make connections among the many topics taught within a mathematics course. Alan holds a B.A. in Secondary Education from Arizona State University and a M.A. in Teaching from Grand Canyon University. He won the TAA 2013 Most Promising New Textbook Award for COLLEGE ALGEBRA: A MAKE IT REAL APPROACH.
