This package consists of the textbook plus an access kit for MyMathLab/MyStatLab.

The Bittinger Worktext Series changed the face of developmental education with the introduction of objective-based worktexts that presented math one concept at a time. This approach allowed students 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 students with quality applications, exercises, and new review and study materials to help them apply and retain their knowledge.

MyMathLab provides a wide range of homework, tutorial, and assessment tools that make it easy to manage your course online.
