Gets Them Engaged. Keeps Them Engaged nbsp; Blitzers philosophy: present the full scope of mathematics, while always (1) engaging the student by opening their minds to learning (2) keeping the student engaged on every page (3) explaining ideas directly, simply, and clearly so they dont get "lost" when studying and reviewing.
