9781285195728: Intermediate Algebra

Kaufmann and Schwitters have built this text's reputation on clear and concise exposition, numerous examples, and plentiful problem sets. This traditional text consistently reinforces the following common thread: learn a skill; practice the skill to help solve equations; and then apply what you have learned to solve application problems. This simple, straightforward approach has helped many students grasp and apply fundamental problem-solving skills necessary for future mathematics courses. Algebraic ideas are developed in a logical sequence, and in an easy-to-read manner, without excessive vocabulary and formalism. The open and uncluttered design helps keep students focused on the concepts while minimizing distractions. Problems and examples reference a broad range of topics, as well as career areas such as electronics, mechanics, and health, showing students that mathematics is part of everyday life. The text's resource package--anchored by Enhanced WebAssign, an online homework management tool--saves instructors time while providing additional help and skill-building practice for students outside of class.

Review:

"This text is a very straightforward approach to learning skills needed in college algebra. There are plenty of examples and problems to help students prepare for college algebra."- Joseph Eyles, Morehouse College

"The one thing about Kaufmann books is that they are very clear in their intent. This is one of the strongest assets of the book. It's not all fancy; it just says this is what we're going to do and then it does it . . ."- Patrick Webster, El Camino College
