If you have struggled in previous algebra courses (and even if you haven't), COLLEGE ALGEBRA WITH APPLICATIONS FOR BUSINESS AND LIFE SCIENCES, Second Edition, can help you succeed in your college algebra course. The authors provide you with a firm foundation in algebraic concepts, and guide you in applying your understanding to relevant examples and applications you are likely to encounter in college or in your career. If your instructor chooses, you'll also learn how to use graphing technology as a tool for problem solving and for review or retention.

Ron Larson received his PhD. in mathematics from the University of Colorado and has been a professor of mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University since 1970. He has pioneered the use of multimedia to enhance the learning of mathematics, having authored over 30 software titles since 1990. Dr. Larson has also conducted numerous seminars and in-service workshops for math teachers around the country about using computer technology as a teaching tool and motivational aid. His Interactive Calculus (a complete text on CD-ROM) received the 1996 Texty Award for the most innovative mathematics instructional material at the college level, and it was the first mainstream college textbook to be offered on the Internet.
