### Description:

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 students to interact with the text. The first example in each set is completely worked out; the second example, called 'You Try It,' prompts students to practice concepts at the time they are presented in the text. Complete worked-out solutions to these examples in an appendix at the end of the book help students by providing immediate feedback, concept reinforcement, and identification of mistakes to prevent frustration. Technology is integrated throughout the text to assist students in making connections between abstract mathematical concepts and a concrete representation provided by technology. This is one way in which students are encouraged to think about and use multiple representations of a concept. The inclusion of technology also facilitates computation in order to focus on analysis rather than manipulation and enables students to examine concepts that would be too difficult or time consuming if the technology were not available. Calculator Notes throughout offer tips on using the graphing calculator and See Appendix B notes in student text margin refer students to the graphing calculator appendix for detailed TI-83 and TI-83+ keystroke information. Eduspace, powered by Blackboard, for the Aufmann/Lockwood/Boswell Exploring Introductory and Intermediate Algebra course features algorithmic exercises and test bank content in question pools.### Book details
