Overview

MATHEMATICS: JOURNEY FROM BASIC MATHEMATICS THROUGH INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA Enhanced WebAssign eCourse spans the entire mathematics sequence -- basic mathematics, prealgebra, introductory algebra, and intermediate algebra -- in one ready-to-go resource. Organized around learning objectives, 21 modules provide a streamlined learning path powered by Enhanced WebAssign (EWA) with an integrated, customizable eBook. Ideal for hybrid, lab-based, and online courses, this eCourse offers pre-built assignments and learning tools, including lecture videos, eBook instruction, and practice. Choose a custom printed version, integrated eBook, or select printed modules. A GUIDED WORKBOOK, based on the Aufmann Interactive Method (AIM), is also available.

Richard N. Aufmann, Palomar College

Richard Aufmann is the lead author of two bestselling developmental math series and a bestselling college algebra and trigonometry series, as well as several derivative math texts. He received a BA in mathematics from the University of California, Irvine, and an MA in mathematics from California State University, Long Beach. Mr. Aufmann taught math, computer science, and physics at Palomar College in California, where he was on the faculty for 28 years. His textbooks are highly recognized and respected among college mathematics professors. Today, Mr. Aufmann's professional interests include quantitative literacy, the developmental math curriculum, and the impact of technology on curriculum development.

Joanne S. Lockwood, Nashua Community College

Joanne Lockwood received a BA in English Literature from St. Lawrence University and both an MBA and a BA in mathematics from Plymouth State University. Ms. Lockwood taught at Plymouth State University and Nashua Community College in New Hampshire, and has over 20 years' experience teaching mathematics at the high school and college level. Ms. Lockwood has co-authored two bestselling developmental math series, as well as numerous derivative math texts and ancillaries. Ms. Lockwood's primary interest today is helping developmental math students overcome their challenges in learning math.

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.

  • One solution for one course or multiple courses: Students can start their journey at the beginning and use one solution for multiple courses or begin at intermediate algebra. No matter where their journey starts, they will pay only one price for access to this digital course designed by the trusted Aufmann and Lockwood team.
  • Customizable for your course and environment: This digital solution offers a collection of learning objectives organized by section into 21 modules spanning the entire developmental mathematics sequence-- basic mathematics, prealgebra, introductory algebra, and intermediate algebra. Create the course that best fits your syllabus and course environment needs.
  • You choose the pace: Whether your course is taught at an accelerated or traditional pace, you have the flexibility to choose the topics and amount of learning and homework problems to suit your instructional goals.
  • Option to print the eBook Read Its: Within the course, Read Its accompany the problems and lead to the integrated eBook. If a customized, printed text comprised of the Read It instruction found in the EWA learning path is desired, you can choose the modules you want printed through Cengage Compose.
  • Guided Workbook designed to follow the learning path: To further support students along the path, we offer a Guided Workbook, based on the Aufmann Interactive Method (AIM), that encourages active participation as they work through the course.
  • Integrated video instruction: By far the most popular way students choose to learn and study, video instruction is integrated within the homework and learning path in the form of Video Examples that ask students to watch a video and then answer a question about the concept that is presented and Watch Its which accompany each problem. Videos are also integrated—just-in-time—into the eBook Read Its.
  • Personal Study Plan (PSP): This flexible tool helps students identify which topics they have mastered and which require further study. Comprised of quizzes that assess learning gaps, the PSP suggests learning tools that students can use to remediate topics that have not yet been mastered. Visual indicators allow students to easily view their performance in relation to a pre-determined mastery level.
