About this title:

Synopsis: Jim Stewart, author of the worldwide, best-selling Calculus, Third Edition--along with two of his former Ph.D. students, Lothar Redlin and Saleem Watson--collaborated in writing this text to address a problem the frequently saw in their calculus courses: many students were not prepared to "think mathematically" but attempted instead to memorize facts and mimic examples. College Algebra was written specifically to help students learn to think mathematically and to develop true problem-solving skills. Now in the Second Edition, the authors have refined their approach to make it work even more effectively for today's students. To help students develop mathematical thinking, the authors offer careful exposition and examples, well-graded exercises, and a problem-solving emphasis that is carried throughout the book. They introduce Polya's problem-solving principles in Chapter 1, then conclude each subsequent chapter with a section entitled "Focus on Problem Solving", which highlights a particular problem-solving technique. Each "Focus" section includes a wide variety of problems that encourage students to apply their problem-solving skills, often to real-life problems.

About the Author: The late James Stewart received his M.S. from Stanford University and his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. He did research at the University of London and was influenced by the famous mathematician George Polya at Stanford University. Stewart was most recently Professor of Mathematics at McMaster University, and his research field was harmonic analysis. Stewart was the author of a best-selling calculus textbook series published by Cengage Learning, including CALCULUS, CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, and CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS, as well as a series of precalculus texts.

Lothar Redlin grew up on Vancouver Island, received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Victoria, and a Ph.D. from McMaster University in 1978. He subsequently did research and taught at the University of Washington, the University of Waterloo, and California State University, Long Beach. He is currently Professor of Mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University, Abington Campus. His research field is topology.

He subsequently did research at the Mathematics Institute of the University of Warsaw in Poland. He also taught at The Pennsylvania State University.
