Introductory Algebra with Basic Mathematics by Richard N. Aufmann, Vernon C. Barker, Joanne S. Lockwood

Introductory Algebra with Basic Mathematics is designed to be taught in all classroom settings, from lecture or small group classes to self-paced learning laboratories. The authors' acclaimed three-step interactive method lets students see a worked example, attempt a similar end-of-section exercise, and then see the complete solution to that exercise. Exercises concentrate on writing and research development, problem solving using real data, and exploring different strategies to solve problems.
