In writing Elementary Algebra, John Redden had simple but important aims:
- Lay a solid foundation in mathematics through algebra, the basis of all mathematical modeling used in a variety of disciplines
- Guide students from the basics to more advanced techniques in mathematics
This textbook is suitable for these courses: Elementary Algebra
This textbook is suitable for 2 and 4-year institutions.
- REAL WORLD APPLICATIONS:
- VIDEO EXAMPLES AND ACTIVITIES:
- OPEN AND MODULAR FORMAT:
- MORE VALUE AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE:
With diverse exercise sets, students have the opportunity to solve plenty of practice problems. Elementary Algebra has applications incorporated into each and every exercise set. John makes use of the classic ”translating English sentences into mathematical statements“ subsections in chapter 1 and as the text introduces new key terms.
Embedded video examples are present, while the importance of practice with pencil and paper is still stressed. This text respects the traditional approaches to algebra instruction while enhancing it with today's technology.
While algebra is one of the most diversely applied subjects, students find it to be a difficult hurdle in their education. With this in mind, John Redden wrote Elementary Algebra in a format that allows instructors to modify it and leverage their individual expertise and maximize student experience and success.
Using the online text in conjunction with a printed version of the text could promote greater understanding (at a lower cost than most algebra texts).
