Overview

The Aufmann/Lockwood MATHEMATICS: JOURNEY FROM BASIC MATHEMATICS THROUGH INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA Enhanced WebAssign eCourse delivers learning objectives organized by section in 21 modules spanning the entire developmental mathematics sequence—basic mathematics, prealgebra, introductory algebra, and intermediate algebra—in one, ready to go, flexible resource. With a streamlined learning path powered by Enhanced WebAssign (EWA) and an integrated, fully-customizable eBook, this eCourse illustrates engagement and ease of use. No matter your syllabus needs or course environment—hybrid, lab-based, and online—you have everything needed to get started with minimal setup time. From pre-built pre- and post-tests, homework assignments to section quizzes, and more, the Aufmann/Lockwood eCourse allows you to focus on what matters most—helping your students succeed. A better teaching and learning experience for your students is here! With the Aufmann/Lockwood MATHEMATICS: JOURNEY FROM BASIC MATHEMATICS THROUGH INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA Enhanced WebAssign eCourse, all the learning tools students need to succeed are built into their assignments, including lecture videos with practice questions, eBook instruction, and various opportunities for practice. If you and your students prefer a printed book, a custom, printed text including the Read It sections found in the EWA learning path and the integrated eBook is desired is available or you can choose the modules you want printed through Cengage Compose. To further help you guide students along the learning path, we offer a GUIDED WORKBOOK, based on the Aufmann Interactive Method (AIM) which encourages active participation along the learning path.
