The Sixth Edition features new discussion of parallel lines in Chapter 7. Discussion of solutions of systems of equations in Chapter 8 has been expanded and enhanced to promote greater understanding of dependent, inconsistent, and independent systems of equations. Simplification of square roots in Chapter 10 is now presented using perfect squares. New concept-based writing exercises encourage students to verbalize and understand concepts and new developmental exercises in many exercise sets further reinforce concepts and skills.
