For courses in Beginning & Intermediate Algebra. Understanding and Applying Mathematical Concepts The goal of the Bittinger Concepts and Applications Series is to help today’s student learn and retain mathematical concepts. This proven program prepares students for the transition from skills-oriented elementary algebra courses to more concept-oriented college-level mathematics courses. This requires the development of critical-thinking skills: to reason mathematically, to communicate mathematically, and to identify and solve mathematical problems. The new editions support students with a tightly integrated MyLab™ Math course; a strong focus on problem-solving, applications, and concepts, and the robust MyMathGuide workbook and objective-based video program. In addition, new material—developed as a result of the authors’ experience in the classroom, as well as from insights from faculty and students—includes more systematic review and preparation for practice, as well as stronger focus on real-world applications. Also available with MyLab Math. MyLab™ Math is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them absorb course material and understand difficult concepts.

Appell (jazz studies, Diablo Valley College) and Hemphill (graduate studies, research, and development, San Francisco State University) offer a textbook for popular music, humanities, or cultural studies courses, organized by the musical influences of particular cultural groups--African American, European American, Latin, Native American and Asian--rather than a strict chronological approach. This is followed by a section tracing modern jazz to hip hop. They survey a broad range of styles, from minstrelsy, blues, hymns, and wind bands to Chicano music, Afro-Caribbean music, bebop, acid jazz, girl groups, folk-rock, the British invasion, R & B, and rock.

Intermediate Algebra focuses on the principles, operations, and approaches involved in intermediate algebra. The book first elaborates on basic properties and definitions, first-degree equations and inequalities, and exponents and polynomials. Discussions focus on the greatest common factor and factoring by grouping, factoring trinomials, special factoring, equations with absolute value, inequalities involving absolute value, formulas, first-degree equations, graphing simple and compound inequalities, and properties of real numbers. The text then takes a look at rational expressions, rational exponents and roots, and quadratic equations. Topics include solving quadratic equations by factoring, discriminant and the sum and product of solutions, multiplication and division of complex numbers, combinations of radical expressions, rational exponents, complex fractions, and multiplication and division of rational expressions. The manuscript elaborates on sequence and series, logarithms, relations and functions, and conic sections, including ellipses and hyperbolas, nonlinear systems, function and notation, algebra with functions, common logarithms and computations, and word problems. The publication is a dependable reference for students and researchers interested in intermediate algebra.

Susanna Epp's DISCRETE MATHEMATICS WITH APPLICATIONS, FOURTH EDITION provides a clear introduction to discrete mathematics. Renowned for her lucid, accessible prose, Epp explains complex, abstract concepts with clarity and precision. This book presents not only the major themes of discrete mathematics, but also the reasoning that underlies mathematical thought. Students develop the ability to think abstractly as they study the ideas of logic and proof. While learning about such concepts as logic circuits and computer addition, algorithm analysis, recursive thinking, computability, automata, cryptography, and combinatorics, students discover that the ideas of discrete mathematics underlie and are essential to the science and technology of the computer age. Overall, Epp's emphasis on reasoning provides students with a strong foundation for computer science and upper-level mathematics courses.
