This new text provides a contemporary approach to college algebra, ideal for the many skeptical or apprehensive students who ask, When am I ever going to use this? The key phrase is Make It Real since the goal is to make the material relevant and understandable to todaya€™s college students. But many books make this claim--so how is COLLEGE ALGEBRA: MAKE IT REAL different? In other texts, which simply wrap real-world situations around problems, the context isna€™t needed to do the mathematics. Written by skilled and passionate teachers, this text uses real-world data sets and situations to draw out mathematical concepts. Students are immersed in familiar contexts--from golf course ratings to Egyptian pyramids--from which concepts emerge naturally, and then guided in using their understanding of those ideas to make sense of the mathematics. The real-world contexts are not only helpful for understanding procedures--theya€™re necessary. The concept of a function, the use of modeling, and the thorough integration of real-world applications are integral to the text. If therea€™s one new college algebra text crafted to stand up to a reality check comparison with your current book, this is it.
