Learn to think mathematically and develop genuine problem-solving skills with Stewart, Redlin, and Watson's COLLEGE ALGEBRA, Sixth Edition. This straightforward and easy-to-use algebra book will help you learn the fundamentals of algebra in a variety of practical ways. The book features new tools to help you succeed, such as learning objectives before each section to prepare you for what you're about to learn, and a list of formulas and key concepts after each section that help reinforce what you've learned. In addition, the book includes many real-world examples that show you how mathematics is used to model in fields like engineering, business, physics, chemistry, and biology.

James Stewart received his M.S. from Stanford University and his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. He did research at the University of London and was influenced by the famous mathematician George Polya at Stanford University. Stewart is currently Professor of Mathematics at McMaster University, and his research field is harmonic analysis. Stewart is the author of a best-selling calculus textbook series published by Cengage Learning, including CALCULUS, CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, and CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS, as well as a series of precalculus texts.
