## Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Concepts and Applications, Fourth Edition (Hardback)"Our goal, quite simply, is to help today's students both learn and retain mathematical concepts. To achieve this goal, we feel that we must prepare developmental mathematics students for the transition from 'skills-oriented' elementary and intermediate algebra courses to more 'concept-oriented' college-level mathematics courses. This requires that we teach these same students critical thinking skills: to reason mathematically, to communicate mathematically, and to identify and solve mathematical problems." — The authors in the Preface (page xiii) ## $12.95 |

**GOOD:** This textbook is in good condition, showing a few signs of use and wear: some of the pages are creased, some of the cover’s corners are slightly bent. There is no writing on the pages.

## Description

The Bittinger/Ellenbogen/Johnson Algebra textbooks come with a great reputation for thoroughly presenting concepts and applications in Algebra. This particular book is third in a series of three texts in an algebra series.

The hefty volume includes color photos and illustrations. The answers for odd-numbered questions are included in the back. A “Feature Walkthrough” section at the front of the book emphasizes these new fourth edition features, such as Chapter Openers that contain testimonials of people who have applied the algebra covered in the chapter, Student Notes, Study Skills, Technology Connections that aid the student in using graphing calculators, Algebraic-Graphical Connection for concept visualization, Real-Data Applications, Connecting the Concepts, Concept Reinforcement Exercises, Exercises, Study Summary, and Cumulative Review.

The textbook can be used by advanced high schoolers and college students. Additional online support is available from the publisher.
