Overview

Kaufmann and Schwitters have built this text's reputation on clear and concise exposition, numerous examples, and plentiful problem sets. This traditional text consistently reinforces the following common thread: learn a skill; practice the skill to help solve equations; and then apply what you have learned to solve application problems. This simple, straightforward approach has helped many students grasp and apply fundamental problem solving skills necessary for future mathematics courses. Algebraic ideas are developed in a logical sequence, and in an easy-to-read manner, without excessive vocabulary and formalism. The open and uncluttered design helps keep students focused on the concepts while minimizing distractions. Problems and examples reference a broad range of topics, as well as career areas such as electronics, mechanics, and health, showing students that mathematics is part of everyday life. The text's resource package—anchored by Enhanced WebAssign, an online homework management tool—saves instructors time while also providing additional help and skill-building practice for students outside of class.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I do like the organization. I like that once a skill is covered that skill is then used to solve equations. For example, adding/subtracting terms is covered, then linear equations... factoring is covered, then solving equations by factoring... simplifying rational expressions, then solving rational equations... simplifying radicals, then solving radical equations. I have used texts where those skills are all covered once and then all the equations are lumped together in a "solving equations" chapter. I tend to get bogged down in equations that way and students seem to get overwhelmed. I think the organization of this text is much better."- Meredith Williams, Campbell University

"This text provides a thorough but concise path from arithmetic to Intermediate Algebra and has readable text, relevant examples, and robust exercise sets."- Michael Carr, Mott Community College
