Essentials of College Algebra with Modeling and by Gary K. Rockswold

By Gary K. Rockswold

Gary Rockswold teaches algebra in context, answering the query, “Why am I studying this?” through experiencing math via functions, scholars see the way it matches into their lives, they usually turn into stimulated to be successful. Rockswold’s concentrate on conceptual realizing is helping scholars make connections among the techniques and therefore, scholars see the larger photograph of math and are ready for destiny classes. This streamlined textual content covers linear, quadratic, nonlinear, exponential, and logarithmic services and structures of equations and inequalities, which will get to the center of what scholars desire from this path. A extra entire university algebra textual content is usually on hand.
