This text employs the cyclical method. That is its greatest strength. Once a concept is learned it is never forgotten because it is used regularly. Further, this whole series is written with an understanding that the theoretical study of math is important. Mathematics can and should be used practically, but the study of mathematics is important for its own sake. If one masters this material he is well prepared for any further study.
Students will develop the understanding they need to resolve more complex problems and functions with this step-by-step course. Covers topics including signed numbers, exponents, and roots; absolute value; equations and inequalities; scientific notation; unit conversions; polynomials; graphs; factoring; quadratic equations; direct and inverse variations; exponential growth; statistics; and probability. Kit includes 564-page hardcover student text, softcover answer key, test forms and solutions manual. (3rd Edition)
