Beecher, Penna, and Bittinger's College Algebra is known for enabling students to "see the math" through its focus on visualization and early introduction to functions. With the Fourth Edition, the authors continue to innovate by incorporating more ongoing review to help students develop their understanding and study effectively. Mid-chapter Review exercise sets have been added to give students practice in synthesizing the concepts, and new Study Summaries provide built-in tools to help them prepare for tests. The MyMathLab course (access kit required) has been expanded so that the online content is even more integrated with the text's approach, with the addition of Vocabulary, Synthesis, and Mid-chapter Review exercises from the text as well as example-based videos created by the authors.
The Bittinger series changed the face of developmental education with the introduction of objective-based work texts that presented math one concept at a time. This approach allowed readers to understand the rationale behind each concept before practicing the associated skills and then moving on to the next topic. With this revision, Marv Bittinger continues to focus on building success through conceptual understanding, while also supporting readers with quality applications, exercises, and new review and study materials to help students apply and retain their knowledge.
Drawing examples from business, chemistry, and physics, this textbook walks through graphical and algebraic methods for solving linear equations, inequalities, and polynomials, as well as rational, radical, quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic equations. The second edition moves the conic sections material to an appendix and adds a section on factoring the sums and differences of cubes.
