INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA'S simple, three-step problem-solving approach—learn a skill, use the skill to solve equations, and then use the equation to solve application problems—keeps you focused on building skills and reinforcing them through practice. This straightforward approach, in an easy-to-read format, has helped many students grasp and apply fundamental problem-solving skills. The carefully structured pedagogy includes learning objectives, detailed examples to help you see how concepts are used and applied, practice exercises, and helpful end-of-chapter reviews. Problems and examples reference a broad array of topics as well as career areas such as electronics, mechanics, and health, showing you that mathematics is part of everyday life.
