#### Additional product details

GeorgeWoodbury’s Algebra Series empowers students for future success in college-level math courses through its early-and-often approach to functions and graphing, integrated study strategies, and quality exercise sets that encourage true conceptual understanding. By writing this text from the ground up as a single textbook, George has reduced the amount of overlap typically found in these courses and focused instead on providing more exercises and applications. The special Transition Chapter reviews elementary algebra topics while moving forward into intermediate algebra material, keeping students engaged in new topics.

One of the ways George prepares his students for future mathematics courses is by introducing the fundamental algebraic concepts of functions and graphing early and then consistently incorporating these concepts throughout the text. Strong exercise sets that provide both volume and variety are critical to student success, so George has written extensive sets that incorporate not only a substantial amount of skill and drill, but also plenty of writing exercises that encourage critical thinking and creativity. The key to success for developmental students is often not just about the math: it’s about making sure that students understand how to study and prepare for a math class. To give students the confidence they require to succeed, George fully integrates study strategies throughout the text and also provides further guidance.
