For courses in Intermediate Algebra and Math and Technology.This text bridges the gap between traditional algebra texts and reform texts, written to promote the AMATYC standards published as Crossroads in Mathematics. It provides students with a sound traditional mathematical foundation, fully integrates graphing calculator technology, and encourages computer activities-while still offering choices on the amount of technology instructors wish to use.show more
