Tussy and Gustafson's fundamental goal is to build students' conceptual foundation in the qlanguage of algebraq through reading, writing, and talking about mathematics. Their text blends instructional approaches that include vocabulary, varied practice problem sets, and well-defined pedagogy, along with an emphasis on reasoning, modeling, communication, and technology skills. Tussy and Gustafson make learning easy for students with their five-step problem-solving approach: analyze the problem, form an equation, solve the equation, state the result, and check the solution. In addition, the text's widely acclaimed study sets at the end of every section are tailored to improve students' ability to read, write, and communicate mathematical ideas. The Third Edition of ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA also features a robust suite of online course management, testing, and tutorial resources for instructors and students. This includes iLrn Testing and Tutorial, vMentor live online tutoring, the Interactive Video Skillbuilder CD-ROM with MathCue, a Book Companion Web Site featuring online graphing calculator resources, and The Learning Equation (TLE), powered by iLrn. TLE provides a complete courseware package, featuring a diagnostic tool that gives instructors the capability to create individualized study plans. With TLE, a cohesive, focused study plan can be put together to help each student succeed in math.G. vertical lines, 210 Graphing calculators, 212 Greatest common factor (GCF), 352 Grouping symbols, 62 ... 655 Nonlinear systems of equations, solving, 1028 Notation cube root, 693 exponential, 58 factorial, 1045 function, 643 interval, 160, anbsp;...
