BEGINNING ALGEBRA, International Edition employs a proven, three-step problem-solving approachlearn a skill, use the skill to solve equations, and then use the equations to solve application problemsto keep students focused on building skills and reinforcing them through practice. This simple and straightforward approach, in an easy-to-read format, has helped many students grasp and apply fundamental problem-solving skills. The carefully structured pedagogy includes learning objectives, detailed examples to develop concepts, practice exercises, an extensive selection of problem-set exercises, and well-organized end-of-chapter reviews and assessments. Additionally, the clean and uncluttered design helps keep students focused on the concepts while minimizing distractions. Problems and examples reference a broad array of topics, as well as career areas such as electronics, mechanics, and health, showing students that mathematics is part of everyday life. Also, as recommended by the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges, many basic geometric concepts are integrated in the book's problem-solving sets. The text's resource packageanchored by Enhanced WebAssign, an online homework management toolsaves instructors time while also providing additional help and skill-building practice for students outside of class.
