Intermediate through College Algebra: A Streamlined Experience

College Algebra with Intermediate Algebra: A Blended Course is an innovative new program from the Beecher et al. author team. Designed to meet your changing needs in Intermediate Algebra and College Algebra courses, this program eliminates the repetition in topic coverage across the traditional, two-course sequence. The result is a streamlined course experience that makes better use of time and resources. The careful arrangement of topics—one building on the next without redundancy—motivates and creates a solid foundation of knowledge. This new, streamlined approach to these courses is complemented by the authors’ innovative ability to help you “see the math” through their focus on visualization, early introduction to functions and graphing, and making connections between math concepts and the real world.
