Overview

Introductory Algebra and Trignometry with Applications by Paul Calter and Carol Felsinger Rogers This textbook introduces all the important topics for a student who needs preparatory, review, or remedial work in mathematics. Adapted from Calter's Technical Mathematics, it uses an intuitive approach and gives information in very small-segments. Careful page layout and numerous illustrations make the material easy to follow. Features of Introductory Algebra and Trigonometry with Applications include the following.*Graphing Calculator: The graphing calculator has been fully integrated throughout the text, and calculator problems are given in the exercises. The book does not present any particular calculator. Keystrokes are shown in the early chapters, with verbal descriptions given thereafter.*Common Error Boxes: Many of the mistakes that students repeatedly make have been identified and are presented in the text as Common Error boxes.*Summary of Facts and Formulas: All important formulas are boxed and numbered in the text and are listed in the Summary of Facts and Formulas at the end of the book.*Examples: The many fully worked examples are specifically chosen to help the student do the exercises.*Exercises: A large number of exercises is given after each section, graded by difficulty and grouped by type.*Chapter Review Exercises: Every chapter ends with a set of Chapter Review Exercises. In contrast to the exercises, most are scrambled as to type and difficulty, requiring the student to be able to identify type.*Applications: Applications drawn from many fields are included in the examples, the exercises, and the Chapter Review.*Writing Questions:The "writing-across-the-curriculum" movement urges writing in every course as an aid to learning. In response, this text provides a writing question at the end of every chapter.*Team Projects: As an aid to collaborative learning, a team project is included at the end of most chapters.*Thorough Support Material: Among valuable components found at the end of the book are the Summary of Facts and Formulas, Conversion Factors, Answers to Selected Exercises, Index to Applications, Index to Writing Questions, Index to Team Projects, and General Index.*For the Instructor: An Instructor's Manual contains worked-out solutions to every even-numbered problem in the text. This most valuable supplement is available to any instructor using the textbook.
