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

The Bittinger Graphs and Models Series helps students “see the math” and learn algebra by making connections between mathematical concepts and their real-world applications. The authors use a variety of tools and techniques—including side-by-side algebraic and graphical solutions and graphing calculators, when appropriate—to engage and motivate all types of learners. Abundant applications, many of which use real data, provide a context for learning and understanding the math.

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