About this item
NOTE: This edition features the same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf version. Books a la Carte also offer a great value; this format costs significantly less than a new textbook. Before purchasing, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. For Books a la Carte editions that include MyLab™ or Mastering™, several versions may exist for each title—including customized versions for individual schools—and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a Course ID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use MyLab or Mastering platforms.
For Beginning & Intermediate Algebra combo courses.
Modeling authentic data through curve-fitting gives students new meaning to the math
Seeking the answer to students’ perennial question “But what is this good for?” the Lehmann Algebra Series uses authentic, real-life data sets to find models and derive equations that fit the scenario. The curve-fitting approach teaches the mathematical concepts within the context of data, getting students engaged from the start and building conceptual understanding.
Updates in this revision keep the data sets authentic and current, and provide even more resources for students to practice, review, and explore the concepts.
Also available with MyLab Math
By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab™ personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.
Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MyLab Math does not come packaged with this content. Students, if interested in purchasing this title with MyLab Math, ask your instructor to confirm the correct package ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
