Overview

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

The Carson algebra series addresses two fundamental issues—individual learning styles and comprehension of key mathematical concepts—to meet the needs of today’s readers. Carson’s Study System, presented in the To the Student section at the front of the text, adapts to the way each reader learns to ensure their success in this and future courses. The consistent emphasis on the big picture of algebra, with pedagogy and support that helps readers put each new concept into proper context, encourages conceptual understanding.

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