This package includes a physical copy of Foundation Maths, 5e by Anthony as well as access to the eText and MyMathLab. Your instructor will need to provide you with a course ID in order for you to access the eText and MyMathLab. Foundation Maths has been written for students taking higher or further education courses, who have not specialised in mathematics on post-16 qualifications and need to use mathematical tools in their courses. It is ideally suited for those studying marketing, business studies, management, science, engineering, computer science, social science, geography, combined studies and design. It will be useful for those who lack confidence and need careful, steady guidance in mathematical methods. Even for those whose mathematical expertise is already established, the book will be a helpful revision and reference guide. The style of the book also makes it suitable for self-study or distance learning. MyMathLab is being used in universities all over the world to improve student performance. MyMathLab has immersive content and engaging tools, along with time-saving automatic grading. "MyMathLab is everything that I need to get good results from my students...It saves me a lot of time so I have more time to do what I really should do and that's teach and help my students. " - Dr Morten Brekke, Agder University, Norway. With MyMathLab, students gain knowledge that they will use throughout their lives, and universities gain a partner deeply committed to helping students and educators achieve their goals. For students *Personalised study plan: MyMathLab gives you the opportunity to test yourself on key concepts and skills and generates a study plan based on topics you have not yet mastered. The study plan links to interactive exercises with guidance, to give you help when you need it most. *Pearson eText gives you access to an eBook that can be used on the go, and allows you to highlight, search and take notes as you read online. Access to the eBook depends on the package you have bought. *Help Me Solve This breaks the problem down into manageable chunks so you can work through the methodology a stage at a time, applying what you've learnt as you go along. * The questions are free response so you can give truly mathematical answers using the intuitive yet comprehensive maths palette or the graphing tool. For educators *Online assignments, tests, quizzes can be easily created and assigned to students. *Gradebook: Assignments are automatically graded and visible at a glance.
