College Algebra in Context (4th Edition)

Buy
College Algebra in Context is designed for a course in algebra that is based on data analysis, modeling, and real-life applications from the management, life, and social sciences. The text is intended to show students how to analyze, solve, and interpret problems in this course, in future courses, and in future careers. At the heart of this text is its emphasis on problem solving in meaningful contexts.

The text is application-driven and uses real-data problems that motivate interest in the skills and concepts of algebra. Modeling is introduced early, in the discussion of linear functions and in the discussion of quadratic and power functions. Additional models are introduced as exponential, logarithmic, logistic, cubic, and quartic functions are discussed. Mathematical concepts are introduced informally with an emphasis on applications. Each chapter contains real-data problems and extended application projects that can be solved by students working collaboratively.

The text features a constructive chapter-opening Algebra Toolbox, which reviews previously learned algebra concepts by presenting the prerequisite skills needed for successful completion of the chapter. In addition, a section on calculus preparation at the end of the text emphasizes how students can use their new knowledge in a variety of calculus courses.
