Details: Product Description A one-semester, non-STEM path focused alternative to the traditional two-semester, Intro & Intermediate developmental algebra sequence. Students should be prepared to move from this course into a non-STEM track credit-level course, such as Liberal Arts Math or Statistics, or Intermediate Algebra. Provides tools to stay engaged and succeed in the course In a relatable and distinctive voice, Bob Blitzer motivates students of diverse backgrounds and majors by engaging them through compelling, real-world applications of the math. Pathways to College Mathematics is a general survey of topics that prepares students for a variety of college math courses ― primarily liberal arts mathematics, quantitative reasoning, statistics, finite mathematics, and mathematics for education majors. The content does go deep enough to also prepare students for Intermediate Algebra or College Algebra, if an instructor chooses to cover this material. The text and MyLab™ Math course give students going on to a non-STEM, college-level course a one-semester alternative to the traditional two-semester algebra course. It’s intended to accelerate non-STEM students through their developmental sequence, but can also prepare students for intermediate algebra if they intend to follow a STEM pathway. A goal of the 2nd Edition is to encourage students to use their textbooks and MyLab Math materials, which are essential components to understanding concepts and course success. At the start, Blitzer outlinesthree clear steps to success – Read the Book or eBook, Work the Problems, and Review for Quizzes and Tests. Each includes a wealth of learning tools. For students’ convenience, the book is available in paperback, loose-leaf, or eText format, and in MyLab Math and through other sources. Also available with MyLab Math By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab Math personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.
