Objective: Visualizing the Concepts
One of the hallmarks of the Bittinger Developmental Math program is objective-based learning. In Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Graphs and Models, Fifth Edition, the authors place special emphasis on conceptual understanding, modeling, and visualization. Their goal is to help students "see the math" and learn algebra by making connections between the math and real-world applications. For the Fifth Edition, the authors have made many updates to the text and applications, as well as to the accompanying resources. These include important enhancements to the MyMathLab course, new Active Learning Figures, and the creation of a new interactive video program, To-the-Point Objective Videos, associated with a new student workbook, MyMathGuide: Notes, Practice, and Video Path.
Also available with MyMathLabMyMathLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them absorb course material and understand difficult concepts. The text and MyMathLab course form a tightly integrated program with all new To-the-Point Objective Videos, Active Learning Figures, and MyMathGuide workbook.
