The Miller/O'Neill/Hyde author team continues to offer an enlightened approach grounded in the fundamentals of classroom experience in Beginning Algebra 4e. The text reflects the compassion and insight of its experienced author team with features developed to address the specific needs of developmental level students. Throughout the text, the authors communicate to students the very points their instructors are likely to make during lecture, and this helps to reinforce the concepts and provide instruction that leads students to mastery and success. Also included are Problem Recognition Exercises, designed to help students recognize which solution strategies are most appropriate for a given exercise. These types of exercises, along with the number of practice problems and group activities available, permit instructors to choose from a wealth of problems, allowing ample opportunity for students to practice what they learn in lecture to hone their skills. In this way, the book perfectly complements any learning platform, whether traditional lecture or distance-learning; its instruction is so reflective of what comes from lecture, that students will feel as comfortable outside of class as they do inside class with their instructor.

This book offers a sound mathematics presentation, useful pedagogy, and a superb problem-solving framework. The Second Edition features a greater incorporation of AMATYC and NCTM standards, reflected in an increased emphasis on visualization and graphing, carefully revised problems and exercises, and more data analysis. A six-step problem-solving approach is woven consistently throughout -- 1) Understand; 2) Assign; 3) Illustrate; 4) Translate into a model (or equation); 5) Complete; 6) Interpret a variety of realistic problems. Increased emphasis on data interpretation, with real data integrated throughout, beginning with an introduction to bar graphs in Section 1.1. With the emphasis on interpreting data via graphs, readers reinforce what they've learned visually and see math's tangibility. Graphing is introduced earlier and developed in-depth in more than one chapter in line with AMATYC and NCTM standards. An early introduction to graphing helps readers see the math in Chapter 3. An emphasis on visualization through graphing is carried throughout; by Chapter 7, readers are ready to master functions and equations of lines.

The design of this book is to present information using simple terms in easy to understand explanations. Sometimes math textbooks present an overwhelming amount of information on a given topic. In this book we have simplified explanations and also given examples that are easier to comprehend. Also, new information is presented in short sections with immediate testing. This form of personalized instruction is often used in on-line Internet based courses for distance learning. A small amount of information is presented in each section before advancing to the next section. Exercises are listed after several sections followed by the answer key. Beginning Algebra was originally published by Williamsville Publishing Company as part of their popular audio-visual Tape 'n Text Math Series. Material in the series was submitted for review in "The Mathematics Teacher" and received praise: "The development was well done." This paperback is intended for classroom teachers, students and as a reference book for libraries and learning centers. Elementary algebra includes the study of basic operations found in arithmetic such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. What's new is that letters of the alphabet (called variables) are introduced to stand for numbers like in business formulas that are used to calculate interest. The letters, called variables stand for numbers such as integers 1, 2, 3 or decimal numbers such as .5, 1.5, 2.7 etc. The basic rules of arithmetic apply in elementary algebra. However, new concepts are added to arithmetic such as: reasoning about relationships, generalizations about these relationships and the application of logical thinking. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: William Parks, B.S., M.S., Ed.M., taught secondary level mathematics in private and public high schools in New York for five years. He taught community college mathematics and computer science for 25 years in New York, Tennessee, Maryland and Arizona. He was a computer science degree program developer at four colleges: SUNY Colleges at Buffalo and Fredonia, Elon University and D'Youville College. He was technical editor for "Personal Computing" and "PC AI" magazines.

BEGINNING ALGEBRA: CONNECTING CONCEPTS THROUGH APPLICATIONS shows students how to apply traditional mathematical skills in real-world contexts. The emphasis on skill building and applications engages students as they master algebraic concepts, problem solving, and communication skills. Students learn how to solve problems generated from realistic applications, instead of learning techniques without conceptual understanding. The authors have developed several key ideas to make concepts real and vivid for students. First, they emphasize strong algebra skills. These skills support the applications and enhance student comprehension. Second, the authors integrate applications, drawing on realistic data to show students why they need to know and how to apply math. The applications help students develop the skills needed to explain the meaning of answers in the context of the application. Third, the authors develop key concepts as students progress through the course. For example, the distributive property is introduced in real numbers, covered when students are learning how to multiply a polynomial by a constant, and finally when students learn how to multiply a polynomial by a monomial. These concepts are reinforced through applications in the text. Last, the authors' approach prepares students for intermediate algebra by including an introduction to material such as functions and interval notation as well as the last chapter that covers linear and quadratic modeling.

For courses in Prealgebra & Beginning Algebra. The Rockswold/Krieger algebra series fosters conceptual understanding by developing concepts in context through the use of applications, multiple representations, and visualization. By seeing the concept in context before being given the the mathematical abstraction, students make math part of their own experiences instead of just memorizing techniques. The authors believe this approach deepens conceptual understanding and better prepares students for future math courses and life. The new edition continues to bring concepts to life with even more opportunities for students to visualize the math in real-world contexts -- and so, learn key critical-thinking and problem-solving skills -- with new features in the text and MyLab™ Math. Also Available with MyLab Math. MyLab™ Math is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them absorb course material and understand difficult concepts. The 2nd Edition continues to help students develop conceptual understanding and bring key concepts to life with content and assignments that reflect the authors’ approach, including new Section Introduction videos and See the Concept videos with assessment. New Skill Builder assignments offer adaptive practice to build students’ foundational skills, and new workspace assignments allow students to show their mathematical reasoning as they progress step-by-step, with specific feedback at each step in the problem-solving process that adjusts to their path.
