# Blitzer Intermediate Algebra for College Students, 6th Edition (USED)

**USED* Book**

**The Blitzer Algebra Series combines mathematical accuracy with an engaging, friendly, and often fun presentation for maximum appeal. Blitzer’s personality shows in his writing, as he draws readers into the material through relevant and thought-provoking applications. Every Blitzer page is interesting and relevant, ensuring that students will actually use their textbook to achieve success!**

**KEY TOPICS: Algebra, Mathematical Models, and Problem Solving; Functions and Linear Functions; Systems of Linear Equations; Inequalities and Problem Solving; Polynomials, Polynomial Functions, and Factoring; Rational Expressions, Functions, and Equations; Radicals, Radical Functions, and Rational Exponents; Quadratic Equations and Functions; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Conic Sections and Systems of Nonlinear Equations; Sequences, Series, and the Binomial Theorem**

**RANGE: For all readers interested in intermediate algebra. **

**FEATURES:**

**Engaging applications and real-world data put learning into context. Bob Blitzer is on a constant search for data that can be used to illustrate algebra applications. He has used this research to update the chapter- and section-opening applications, examples, and exercises in the text.****Additional study skills support is available to students through two new in-text features and the new Learning Guide:****NEW! Great Question! takes the content from each Study Tip from the previous edition and presents it in the context of a student question. Answers to the questions offer suggestions for problem-solving, point out common errors to avoid, and provide informal hints and suggestions.****NEW! Achieving Success boxes offer strategies for success in math courses, along with suggestions to help developmental students achieve their full academic potential.****NEW! The Learning Guide helps students learn how to make the most of their textbook and its companion learning tools, including MyMathLab. Organized by the textbook’s learning objectives, this workbook provides additional practice for each section and guidance for test preparation. Published in an unbound, binder-ready format, the Learning Guide can serve as the foundation as the student’s course notebook.****Extensive exercise sets offer several types of exercises. This variety makes it easy to create well-rounded homework assignments from the text or in MyMathLab. Exercise types include the following:****NEW! Concept and Vocabulary Checks provide fill-in-the-blank and true/false exercises that assess students’ understanding of the definitions and concepts presented in the section. These are also assignable in MyMathLab.****Practice Plus Problems are more challenging exercises that require students to combine several skills or concepts.****Writing in Mathematics exercises ask students to explain terms and concepts in their own words, helping them to develop a mathematical vocabulary.****Critical Thinking Exercises stretch student thinking by taking concepts one step further while asking students to draw conclusions and justify answers. Make Sense and True/False exercises also fall under this category.****Review Exercises review previously covered topics to improve and maintain students’ understanding and mastery of the material.****Preview Exercises help students prepare for the following section by previewing the concepts that they will soon encounter.****Mid-Chapter Check Points allow students to stop and assess the skills and concepts they’ve learned separately over several sections. The Mid-Chapter Check Points will now be available as a pre-made assignment in the Blitzer MyMathLab courses.****Check Point exercises after every example makes the text more interactive by offering students the opportunity to test their understanding of the example by working a similar exercise. Answers to all of the Check Points are in the answer section.****Explanatory Voice Balloons translate algebraic ideas into everyday English, help clarify problem-solving procedures, present alternative ways of understanding concepts, and connect problems solving strategies to concepts students have already learned.****Chapter Summaries are organized by section and highlight important concepts and topics with side-by-side examples to make it easy for students to study and check for mastery of important chapter content.**
