Overview

Larson's COLLEGE ALGEBRA is known for delivering sound explanations of mathematical concepts and carefully selected exercises to prepare students for further study in math. With the tenth edition, Larson continues to transform the way students learn by including more real-world applications, ongoing review, and technology. Also available: the MindTap® Math digital solution.

Ron Larson, The Pennsylvania State University, The Behrend College

Dr. Ron Larson is a professor of mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University, where he has taught since 1970. He received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Colorado and is considered the pioneer of using multimedia to enhance the learning of mathematics, having authored over 30 software titles since 1990. Dr. Larson conducts numerous seminars and in-service workshops for math educators around the country about using computer technology as an instructional tool and motivational aid. He is the recipient of the 2014 William Holmes McGuffey Longevity Award for CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTIONS, the 2013 Text and Academic Authors Association Award for CALCULUS, the 2012 William Holmes McGuffey Longevity Award for CALCULUS: AN APPLIED APPROACH, and the 1996 Text and Academic Authors Association TEXTY Award for INTERACTIVE CALCULUS (a complete text on CD-ROM that was the first mainstream college textbook to be offered on the Internet). Dr. Larson authors numerous textbooks including the bestselling Calculus series published by Cengage.

WebAssign is a flexible and fully customizable online instructional solution that puts powerful tools in the hands of teachers, enabling you to realize your teaching goals and instantly assess individual student performance to help students learn math, not just do online homework.

  • Original Checkpoint problems encourage immediate practice and check students' understanding of the concepts in the paired example.
  • How Do You See It? exercises in every section present real-life problems that students solve by visual inspection using the concepts in the lesson.
  • Side-By-Side Examples help students see not only that a problem can be solved in more than one way but also how different methods--algebraic, graphical, and numerical--yield the same result. The side-by-side format also addresses many different learning styles.
  • Larson's COLLEGE ALGEBRA is ideal for a one-semester course.
  • ENHANCED WEBASSIGN: COLLEGE ALGEBRA, Tenth Edition, is fully supported by Enhanced WebAssign (EWA), the powerful online homework and course management system that engages students in learning the math. EWA includes new end-of-chapter exercises, animated simulations, and pre-built assignments vetted by trusted subject matter experts along with robust course, section, assignment, and question settings and online testing to help instructors foster a deeper understanding of course concepts.
  • The Student Companion Website features chapter projects, data tables, assessments, study tools, video solutions, and more to support students outside the text.
  • The Instructor Companion Website features lesson plans along with other resources for instructors. The lesson plan manual provides suggestions for activities and lesson with notes on time allotment in order to ensure timeliness and efficiency during class.
  • Up-to-the-minute homework support through CalcChat.com, an independent website, provides students with free solutions to all odd-numbered problems in the text.
  • Algebra Helps direct students to sections of the textbook where they can review algebra skills needed to master the current topic.
  • Technology Features offer suggestions for effectively using tools such as calculators, graphing calculators, and spreadsheet programs to deepen student understanding of concepts, ease lengthy calculations, and provide alternate solution methods for verifying answers obtained by hand.
  • Algebra of Calculus examples and exercises throughout the text emphasize various algebraic techniques used in calculus.
