Summary and Info
In this breakthrough text, authors Holtfrerich and Haughn speak as teachers, offering passionate yet patient emphasis on concepts, but not at the expense of teaching algebraic skills. The authors build on and connect topics by discussing the concepts with students in a unique yet logical way. Speaking to students as if they were having a discussion with them in the classroom, the authors use common, everyday applications that make sense to the average student to demonstrate concepts. The authors' approach about where and when topics should be covered is unique, as is the capstone chapter on Modeling/Data Analysis.
