Overview

Books à la Carte are unbound, three-hole-punch versions of the textbook. This lower cost option is easy to transport and comes with same access code or media that would be packaged with the bound book.

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.
