Basic Mathematics, by Goetz, Smith, and Tobey, is your students’ on-ramp to success in mathematics! Providing generous levels of support and interactivity throughout their text, the authors help students experience many small successes, one concept at a time. Students take an active role while using this text–they participate and learn by making decisions, solving exercises, or answering questions as they read. This interactive structure allows students to get up to speed at their own pace, while developing the skills necessary to succeed in future mathematics courses. To deepen the interactive nature of the book, Twitter® is used throughout the text, with the authors providing a tweet for every exercise set of every section, giving students timely hints and suggestions to help with specific exercises. CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
