Intended for a one- or two-semester combined elementary and intermediate algebra course, Exploring Introductory and Intermediate Algebra: A Graphing Approach is designed to assist students in making connections between mathematics and its applications. Its goal is to develop a student's mathematical skills through appropriate use of applications and to use technology to establish links between abstract mathematical concepts and visual or concrete representations. The proven Aufmann Interactive Method (AIM) ensures that students try concepts and manipulate real-life data as they progress through the material. Every objective contains one or more sets of matched-pair examples encouraging…
