University Mathematics Series—College Algebra: Solutions Manual. Alexey A. Kryukov
This Solutions Manual contains solutions to all typical problems in the textbook, "College Algebra: Lecture Notes," by the author. This step-by-step solution guide is a great complement to the textbook and allows the student to truly master problem-solving techniques in College Algebra. The textbook itself is a set of lectures and practical exercises in College Algebra written for university students. It comes with an optional access to online lectures (recorded in an actual classroom setting), tutoring sessions and quizzes, which together constitute an effective tool for the fast and independent mastery of College Algebra by the motivated student. College Algebra is a gateway course, a requirement for all college students. Unfortunately, many students encounter significant difficulties in mastering the course and are often forced to repeat the course numerous times, a discouraging process which is expensive and delays degree completion. This textbook addresses these difficulties by streamlining the course to emphasize the understanding of basic concepts. The textbook is based on the learning principle of moving "from elementary to complex.” Each topic begins with a straight-to-the-point lecture which introduces the main definitions, then an accompanying set of carefully selected problems develops an understanding of the material and the ability to use it on the following topics. For access to MathEdSci, see the inside page of the textbook "College Algebra: Lecture Notes" (an additional fee is needed).
