Description:

Intended for schools that want a single text covering the standard topics from Beginning and Intermediate Algebra. Topics are organized by using the principles of the AMATYC standards as a guide, giving strong support to teachers using the text. The book's organization and pedagogy are designed to workfor studentswith a variety of learning styles and for teachers with varied experiences and backgrounds. The inclusion of multiple perspectives -- verbal, numerical, algebraic, and graphical -- has proven popular with a broad cross section of students. Use of a graphing calculator is assumed. BEGINNING AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA: THE LANGUAGE AND SYMBOLISM OF MATHEMATICS is a reform-oriented book.
