College Algebra With Modeling and Visualization with Integrated Review MyLab Math Access code
about this item
Rockswold's College Algebra with Integrated Review can be used in co-requisite courses, or simply to help students who enter College Algebra without a full understanding of prerequisite skills and concepts.
Showing why math matters
Gary Rockswold doesn’t just mention real-world examples; he teaches mathematical concepts through those applications. For example, if we look at Facebook usage over time, what might that tell us about linear growth and predictions? In this way, students learn the concepts in the context of the world they know, which leads to better understanding and retention. From there, the author shows a connection between application, modeling, and visualization. Rockswold is known for presenting the concept of a function as a unifying theme, with an emphasis on the rule of four (verbal, graphical, numerical, and symbolic representations). The 6th Edition emphasizes conceptual understanding with new in-chapter features and assignment options, while at the same time providing tools to empower instructors to make their classroom more active through collaboration and group work.
