See the Concept presents a concise, visual overview of topics that were previously written out as text. Visualizing the math makes it accessible to all itermediate. Companion See the Concept videos in MyLab Math, presented by the authors, help bring the concept to life. Comment Balloons appear next to steps and procedures to make them more immediately understandable Learning the Math from Multiple Perspectives presents concepts by means of verbal, graphical, numerical, and symbolic representations to support multiple learning styles and problem-solving methods.
New Vocabulary is listed at the start of every section, highlighting the math concepts that are introduced in that section.
This gives students a glimpse of the big picture of the section and helps with test preparation Reading Check questions appear alongside important concepts, ensuring that students understand the material they have just read. These are located throughout every section.
Many Making Connections exercises are assignable in MyLab Math Critical Thinking exercises are included in most sections, posing questions that can be used for class discussion, group work, or homework assignments. Guided Workbook is keyed to the text by section and objective and leads students through the course, giving them the opportunity to record key information, work practice problems, and show and keep their work for reference—as well as taking conceptual understanding one step further by asking students to explain Why?
Now Try exercises follow every example for immediate reinforcement of the skills and concepts NEW! Objective Lists at the beginning of each section give a clear outline of the section contents, making it easier to customize the course Concepts and Vocabulary exercises appear in every section Checking Basic Concepts exercises appear after every other section and can be used for individual or group review.
These exercises require 10—20 minutes to complete and are also appropriate for in-class work. Thinking Generally encourage students to synthesize what they have just learned with open-ended conceptual questions that appear in most section exercise sets. Writing about Mathematics exercises appear at the end of most sections. Students are asked to explain the concepts behind the mathematical procedures they just learned in their own words, encouraging true understanding instead of simple rote memorization.
Group Activities appear once or twice per chapter and provide an opportunity for students to work collaboratively on a problem that involves real-world data. Most activities can be completed with limited use of class time. Using a Graphing Calculator Graphing Calculator Exercise icons denote an optional exercise that requires students to have access to a graphing calculator.
Technology Notes throughout the text are optional notes that offer students guidance, suggestions, and caution. Study Tips offer just-in-time suggestions to help students stay organized and focused on the material at hand Chapter Summary combines key terms, topics, and procedures with illuminating examples to assist students as they prepare for the test with a quick but thorough review Chapter Review Exercises requires students to work exercises and gain confidence while mastering the material Chapter Tests provide students with rehearsal for the real thing and help reduce math anxiety.
Chapter Test Prep Videos offer additional help by showing an instructor working through the step-by-step solutions to every exercise in each Chapter Test Cumulative Review Exercises Starting with Chapter 2 and appearing in all subsequent chapters, Cumulative Review Exercises help students see the big picture of math by reviewing topics and skills they have already learned. See the Concept videoscreated entirely by the authors,bring key concepts to life by providing a visual overview of each See the Concept feature in the text.
Section Introduction videosalso created entirely by the authors, are available for every section of the text. This allows instructors to assign the video and encourage students to watch them to reinforce conceptual understanding.
