The College Algebra textbook written by Beecher, Penna, and Bittinger is famous for its ability to assist students in “seeing the math.” This is accomplished by placing a strong emphasis on visualization and providing an early introduction to functions. The author team has broadened and improved the instruction on review topics that are necessary for today's corequisite classes, as well as for students who enter the course unprepared in general.
The Algebra for College Students MyLab Revision with Corequisite Support is a comprehensive college algebra MyLab Math course that reviews important topics covered in developmental algebra. This course is offered by MyLab. The authors have developed a set of tools that are tailored specifically for underprepared students. These tools include resources that can be used independently by students in the form of videos and notebooks, or in a classroom setting by instructors through the incorporation of activities and interactive media. This robust, just-in-time approach to corequisites gives instructors complete flexibility in implementation, regardless of how their courses are structured, making it ideal either for standard course needs or for courses with students who require additional preparation.
