Description

Explorations in College Algebra’s overarching goal is to reshape the College Algebra course to make it more relevant and accessible to all students. This is achieved by shifting the focus from learning a set of discrete mechanical rules to exploring how algebra is used in social and physical sciences and the world around you. By connecting mathematics to real-life situations, students come to appreciate its power and beauty.

New to This Edition

  • ORION Adaptive Practice: Every student has a different starting point, and adaptive practice provides endless opportunities for practice to effectively prepare for class or quizzes and exams. Active retrieval of information with practice questions is proven to improve retention of information better than re-reading or reviewing the material, and students who use adaptive practice to prepare for exams do significantly better than those who do not. Students begin with a quick, section-level diagnostic to determine their initial level of understanding, and they can use the dashboard and quick reports to see what topics they know and don’t know.
  • Math Maple Questions Type: The feature provides a modern HTML5-based pallet which can be used on any device and will accept mathematically equivalent expressions.
  • Example Videos: The course includes videos which provide detailed, step-by-step instructions for solving various problem types.
