Show synopsis With a reputation built on clear and concise exposition, numerous examples, and plentiful problem sets, Kaufmann and Schwitters' "Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, 6th edition, International Edition" consistently reinforces the following common thread: learn a skill; practice the skill to help solve equations; and then apply what you have learned to solve application problems. This traditional, straightforward approach has helped many students grasp and apply the fundamental problem-solving skills necessary for future mathematics courses. Algebraic ideas are developed in a logical sequence, and in an easy-to-read manner, without excessive vocabulary and formalism. The Sixth Edition's open and uncluttered design helps keep students focused on the concepts while minimizing distractions. Problems and examples reference a broad range of topics, as well as career areas such as electronics, mechanics, and health, showing students that mathematics is part of everyday life. The text's resource package-anchored by Enhanced WebAssign, an online homework management tool-saves instructors time while providing additional help and skill-building practice for students outside of class.
