This text provides a blend of traditional and reform instructional approaches needed to read, write, speak, and think mathematically using the language of algebra. Tussy (Citrus College) and Gustafson (Rock Valley College) provide 11 chapters that expand the students' mathematical reasoning abilities and give them a set of survival skills that will help them to succeed in a world that increasingly requires analytic thinking. They include worked examples followed by selfchecks, problemsolving strategies, applications and connections to other disciplines, indepth coverage of geometry and graphing, study sets and reviews, and onepage summaries of key concepts.
