### Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, 5th Edition

Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, 5th Edition

The main focus of ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5e, is to address the fundamental needs of todays developmental math students. Offering a uniquely modern, balanced program, ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5e, integrates conceptual understanding with traditional skill and practice reinforced through visual and interactive practice in Enhanced WebAssign, available exclusively from Cengage Learning. By helping students understand the language of algebra and the why behind problem solving through instructional approaches and worked examples, they are better equipped to succeed at the how. Practice is essential in making these connections and it is emphasized in ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5e, with additional practice problems both in the text and Enhanced WebAssign. Give your students confidence by showing them how Algebra is not just about the x…its also about the WHY.. 1. AN INTRODUCTION TO ALGEBRA. Introducing the Language of Algebra. Fractions.
