Algebra and Trigonometry 5th Edition, Robert F. Blitzer

Algebra and Trigonometry 5th Edition PDF Download Ebook. Robert F. Blitzer draws on his unique background in mathematics and behavioral science to present the full scope of mathematics with vivid applications in real-life situations. Students stay engaged because Blitzer often uses pop-culture and up-to-date references to connect math to students’ lives, showing that their world is profoundly mathematical.

Outstanding applications put learning into context for students. Blitzer creates intriguing applications that show students the relevance of math. Appealing to a wide range of interests and majors, Blitzer’s applications captivate students’ imagination with his passion for integrating math into the worlds of contemporary society, culture, art, and science.

Clear and accessible presentation ensures that students can follow the book when they get home from class. Voice balloons offer the support and guidance of an instructor’s voice. These specific annotations clarify procedures and concepts, mimicking what an instructor would say in class when translating the math into plain English.

See it, Hear it, Try it is the consistent format of every textbook example. No steps are omitted and each step is clearly explained. Each example concludes with problems for students to try, ensuring that they understand the concept before continuing.

Extensive exercise sets at the end of each section are organized into six categories: Practice Exercises, Application Exercises, Writing in Mathematics, Technology Exercises, Critical Thinking Exercises, and Group Exercises. This variety lets instructors create well-rounded homework assignments, while holding students’ interest with an ongoing selection of novel applications.

Mid-Chapter Checkpoints contain a set of review exercises that allow students to review skills and concepts from several sections before the end-of-chapter exercises. Practice Plus Problems are more challenging problems that test conceptual understanding by requiring students to combine skills and to revisit key concepts in order to solve.

Cumulative Review Exercises at the end of each chapter ensure that students remember previously learned material, keeping the fundamental skills and concepts fresh in their minds as they move on to the next chapter. End-of-chapter tests cover all of the important topics in the chapter, helping students study for the real thing.

True/False problems now challenge students to use their critical thinking skills by asking students to change the wording of false statements so that they become true. Mathematical models coverage now includes more detailed directions. For example, students are asked if values obtained from models overestimate or underestimate the data in graphs. This type of exercise increases students’ mathematical literacy.
