This new text is a companion to the traditional and comprehensive print and eBook versions of the best-selling Beginning Algebra with Applications text by the Aufmann/Lockwood team. The eCompanion provides a telescopic view of the core concepts for introductory algebra as a slim portable inexpensive print option that provides the traditional and online student the summary per learning objective they require. For many students, the format and functionality of the traditional print model has been a hurdle since it doesn't match or reflect their busy lifestyles. Students today need something in print but want the delivery to be digital as well. With that in mind, the eCompanion will provide both for them; a portable tool that is not 1000 pages long but under 250 pages, black-&-white, paperback providing students with what they need to learn and which accompanies the digital version of the more comprehensive text. Together, the print and digital combination helps them study and prepare for mastering the introductory algebra course. With the eCompanion, when accompanied by the entire traditional textbook whether in print or digital medium, they now have a tool that summarizes and presents the key learning objectives for their course. In addition, the eCompanion comes to life when students use it with Enhanced WebAssign our online homework system for Beginning Algebra with Applications. The Enhanced WebAssign program contains over 2,300 exercises from Beginning Algebra with Applications that students can solve either as practice or assessed homework. The EWA content also includes links to video examples, problem-specific tutorials, and more.
