Algebra can be like a foreign language, but ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5E, gives you the tools and practice you need to fully understand the language of algebra and the "why" behind problem solving. Using Strategy and Why explanations in worked examples and a six-step problem solving strategy, ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5E, will guide you through an integrated learning process that will expand your reasoning abilities as it teaches you how to read, write, and think mathematically. Feel confident about your skills through additional practice in the text and Enhanced WebAssign. With ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5E, algebra will make sense because it is not just about the x...it's also about the WHY.
