### Description:

Hirsch and Goodman offer a mathematically sound, rigorous text to those instructors who believe students should be challenged. The text prepares students for future study in higher-level courses by gradually building students' confidence without sacrificing rigor. To help students move beyond the "how" of algebra (computational proficiency) to the "why" (conceptual understanding), the authors introduce topics at an elementary level and return to them at increasing levels of complexity. Their gradual introduction of concepts, rules, and definitions through a wealth of illustrative examples -- both numerical and algebraic--helps students compare and contrast related ideas and understand the sometimes-subtle distinctions among a variety of situations. This author team carefully prepares students to succeed in higher-level mathematics.Members Receive:
