David Cohen's COLLEGE ALGEBRA, Fifth Edition, focuses on teaching mathematics, using a graphical perspective throughout to provide a visual understanding of college algebra. The author is known for his clear writing style and the numerous quality exercises and applications he includes in his respected texts. In this new edition, graphs, visualization of data, and functions are now introduced much earlier and receive greater emphasis. Many sections now contain more examples and exercises involving applications and real-life data. While this edition takes the existence of the graphing calculator for granted, the material is arranged so that one can teach the course with as much or as little graphing utility work as he/she wishes.Cohen, David is the author of 'College Algebra', published 2002 under ISBN 9780534357719 and ISBN 0534357717.
