Using authentic data to make math meaningful to students, Jay Lehmann’s algebra series uses a curve-fitting approach to model compelling, real-world situations, while answering the perennial question “But what is this good for?” Beginning with interesting data sets, students are asked to find models and derive equations to fit a scenario, helping them to understand functions graphically, numerically, and symbolically. Updated exercises, labs, and graphs deepen students’ understanding of core concepts and keeps them motivated to learn.
