Engages them in the discussion. Maintains their level of interest. The inclusion of real-world examples in best-selling author Robert Blitzer's Developmental Mathematics (PDF) immediately piques the curiosity of college students about the presence of mathematical concepts in the world around them. These applications are visible throughout the entirety of the program, from the author's approachable writing style to the awesome relatable examples and thought-provoking features included in the electronic textbook, as well as the improved digital resources included in the MyMathLab course (which is sold separately). To ensure that students will actually use their learning tools to achieve success in college and beyond, Blitzer pulls from issues that are relevant to college students, often taking examples from everyday life and popular culture. Developmental students of all levels, thanks to an expansion of the series to now include a Developmental Math “all-in-one” textbook (with content spanning prealgebra through intermediate algebra), and thanks to an enhanced media program that accompanies this revision, will see how mathematics applies to their everyday lives and culture.
PLEASE NOTE That the purchase only includes the PDF version of Blitzer's Developmental Mathematics. Access to any site, including MyMathLab, is NOT included in this purchase.
