This text is for a one-term course in intermediate algebra, for students who have had a previous elementary algebra course. A five- step problem-solving process is introduced, and interesting applications are used to motivate students. Coverage progresses from graphs, functions, and linear equations to sequences, series, and the binomial theorem. New to this edition are sections on connecting concepts, study tips, and exercises designed to foster intuitive problem solving. Bittinger teaches at Indiana University; Ellenbogen at Community College of Vermont. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
