Gets them engaged. Keeps them engaged.
Bob Blitzer’s use of realistic applications instantly piques students’ curiosity about the presence of mathematical concepts in the world around them. These applications are apparent throughout the entire program–from his relatable examples, friendly writing style, and thought-provoking features in the textbook, to the enhanced digital resources in the MyMathLab course. Blitzer pulls from topics that are relevant to college students, often from pop culture and everyday life, to ensure that students will actually use their learning resources to achieve success. With an expansion of the series to now include a Developmental Math “all-in-one” text (with content spanning prealgebra through intermediate algebra), and with an enhanced media program accompanying this revision, developmental students at all levels will see how math applies to their daily lives and culture.
KEY TOPICS: Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra; Integers and Introduction to Solving Equations; Fractions; Decimals; Percents; Geometry; Statistics & Probability; Linear Equations and Inequalities in One Variable; Linear Equations in Two Variables; Systems of Linear Equations; Exponents and Polynomials; Factoring Polynomials; Rational Expressions; Basics of Functions; Inequalities and Problem Solving; Radicals, Radical Functions, and Rational Exponents; Quadratic Equations and Functions; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Conic Sections and Systems of Nonlinear Equations; Sequences, Series, and the Binomial Theorem.
MARKET: For all readers interested in developmental mathematics.
Bob Blitzer is a native of Manhattan and received a Bachelor of Arts degree with dual majors in mathematics and psychology (minor: English literature) from the City College of New York. His unusual combination of academic interests led him toward a Master of Arts in mathematics from the University of Miami and a doctorate in behavioral sciences from Nova University. Bob’s love for teaching mathematics was nourished for nearly 30 years at Miami Dade College, where he received numerous teaching awards, including Innovator of the Year from the League for Innovations in the Community College and an endowed chair based on excellence in the classroom. In addition to his Developmental Algebra Series, Bob has written textbooks covering college algebra, algebra and trigonometry, precalculus, and liberal arts mathematics, all published by Pearson Education. When not secluded in his Northern California writer’s cabin, Bob can be found hiking the beaches and trails of Point Reyes National Seashore, and tending to the chores required by his beloved entourage of horses, chickens, and irritable roosters.
