For Books a la Carte editions that include MyLab™ or Mastering™, several versions may exist for each title – including customized versions for individual schools – and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a Course ID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use MyLab or Mastering products.

For courses in Beginning Algebra.

Making math clear

The Angel/Runde author team has developed a text and MyLab™ program that uses short, concise sentences and clearly laid-out examples to ensure that all students develop a true understanding of algebra. In this revision, the authors retain this hallmark clarity of language to build the foundation of understanding algebra, while revamping exercise sets and creating new MyLab Math resources to give students a comprehensive learning and practice environment.

Angel/Runde offers market-leading content written by author-educators, tightly integrated with the #1 choice in digital learning – MyLab Math. Bringing the authors’ voice and approach into the MyLab course gives students the clarity, motivation, and understanding they need to master algebra.

Also available with MyLab Math

MyLab™ is the teaching and learning platform that empowers you to reach every student. By combining trusted authors’ content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.

Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MyLab Math does not come packaged with this content. Students, if interested in purchasing this title with MyLab Math, ask your instructor to confirm the correct package ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
