Consistent Stepped-Out Examples are included throughout the text. No steps are omitted and each step is clearly explained.
Each example concludes with problems for students to try, ensuring that they understand the concept before continuing. Answers to the questions offer suggestions for problem solving, point out common errors to avoid, and provide informal hints and suggestions.
Technology boxes show how graphing utilities verify and visualize algebraic results. Even for those not using graphing utilities, these displays will help students understand different approaches hlitzer problem solving. Discovery boxesfound throughout the text, encourage students to further explore algebraic concepts.
These explorations are optional and their omission does not interfere with the continuity of the topic at hand. Chapter Summaries organize chapter material into easy-to-use two-column review charts. These summarize the definitions and concepts for every section of the chapter and refer students to illustrative examples.
