By Gary K. Rockswold

Gary Rockswold teaches algebra in context, answering the query, “Why am I studying this?” via experiencing math via purposes, scholars see the way it matches into their lives, and so they develop into prompted to be successful. Rockswold’s specialize in conceptual figuring out is helping scholars make connections among the thoughts and for that reason, scholars see the larger photograph of math and are ready for destiny classes. advent to features and Graphs; Linear features and Equations; Quadratic features and Equations; extra Nonlinear capabilities and Equations; Exponential and Logarithmic capabilities; Trigonometric services; Trigonometric Identities and Equations; additional issues in Trigonometry; platforms of Equations and Inequalities; Conic Sections; extra issues in Algebra For all readers attracted to university algebra.
