Intermediate Algebra is an excellent presentation of the fundamentals of intermediate algebra. This text provides a solid mathematical foundation for students who will apply these principles in a variety of disciplines as well as those who will continue in college Algebra. Accompanied by a Student Solutions Manual that allows students to, Chris Vancil's book is the perfect addition to any college Algebra course.
An award-winning instructor and best-selling author, Elayn Martin-Gay has taught mathematics at the University of New Orleans for more than 25 years. Her numerous teaching awards include the local University Alumni Association’s Award for Excellence in Teaching, and Outstanding Developmental Educator at University of New Orleans, presented by the Louisiana Association of Developmental Educators.
Prior to writing textbooks, Elayn developed an acclaimed series of lecture videos to support developmental mathematics students in their quest for success. These highly successful videos originally served as the foundation material for her texts. Today, the videos are specific to each book in the Martin-Gay series. Elayn also pioneered the Chapter Test Prep Video to help students as they prepare for a test—their most “teachable moment!”
Elayn’s experience has made her aware of how busy instructors are and what a difference quality support makes. For this reason, she created the Instructor-to-Instructor video series. These videos provide instructors with suggestions for presenting specific math topics and concepts in basic mathematics, prealgebra, beginning algebra, and intermediate algebra. Seasoned instructors can use them as a source for alternate approaches in the classroom. New or adjunct faculty may find the videos useful for review.
Her textbooks and acclaimed video program support Elayn's passion of helping every student to succeed.
