Description

For courses in Algebra and Trigonometry.


 

The Ratti/McWaters/Skrzypek series draws from the authors’ extensive classroom experience to connect conceptual understanding while maintaining course rigor. Just-in-time review throughout College Algebra and Trigonometry, 4th Edition ensures that all students are brought to the same level before being introduced to new concepts. Numerous applications motivate students to apply the concepts and skills they learn in college algebra and trigonometry to other courses (including the physical and biological sciences, engineering, economics, and to on-the-job and everyday problem solving).


Students are given ample opportunities to think about important mathematical ideas, and to practice and apply algebraic skills. Because mathematical concepts are developed thoroughly and with clearly defined terminology, students see the “why” behind those concepts – paving the way for a deeper understanding, better retention, less reliance on rote memorisation, and ultimately more success.

Features & benefits
  • Chapter openers: Each chapter opener includes a description of applications (one of them illustrated) relevant to the content of the chapter and the list of topics that will be covered. In one page, students see what they are going to learn and why they are learning it.

  • Section opener with application:  Each section opens with a list of prerequisite topics, complete with section and page references, which students can review prior to starting the section.

    • The Objectives of the section are also clearly stated and numbered, and then referenced again in the margin of the lesson at the point where the objective’s topic is taught.

    • An Application then follows, containing  a  motivating  anecdote  or  an interesting problem.

    • An example later in the section relating to this application and identified by the same icon is then solved using the mathematics covered in the section. These applications utilise material from a variety of fields: the physical and biological sciences (including health sciences), economics, art and architecture, history, and more.

  • Definitions, Theorems, Properties, and Rules are all boxed and titled for emphasis and ease of reference.

  • Work it out: Ratti/McWaters/Skryzpek encourage students to practice the material frequently, and give them ample opportunities to master the material by solving problems and applying their understanding.

    • Procedure in Action is a special feature which introduces procedure steps within the context of a worked-out example. Important multistep procedures, such as the steps for finding the inverse of a one-to-one function, are presented in a two-column format.

    • Examples include a wide range of computational, conceptual, and modern applied problems carefully selected to build confidence, competency, and understanding. Every example has a title indicating its purpose and presents a detailed solution containing annotated steps.

    • All examples are followed by a Practice Problem for students to try so that they can check their understanding of the concept covered.

  • UPDATED! Over 20% of exercises are updated, and over 500 brand-new exercises have been added.  New exercises primarily consist of applications that connect with students everyday experiences and enhance students conceptual understanding of graphing.

    • REVISED! An improved balance of exercises provides a smoother transition from the less-challenging to the more-challenging exercises. Well-crafted Exercises are offered in a quantity, quality, and variety that meets the needs of all students. They are clearly labeled for instructors and students understanding of exercise expectations.
