The Lial/Hornsby developmental mathematics paperback series has helped thousands of students succeed in math. In keeping with its proven track record, this revision includes a sharp new design, many new exercises and applications, and several new features to enhance student learning. Among the features added or revised include a new *Study Skills Workbook*, a Diagnostic Pretest, Chapter Openers, Test Your Word Power, Focus on Real-Data Applications, and an increased use of the authors' six-step problem solving process.

- NEW - NEW!
**MyMathLab.com**With MyMathLab.com, you can teach your course over the Internet using extensive online testing, quizzing, diagnosis, and performance tracking—all directly tied to the textbook. This Web-based course management system allows students to view the entire text online—linking to video, animation, and tutorial content when appropriate for a complete learning experience. Instructors can create and assign tests and quizzes, view students' work in the exercise sets, track student usage of the online resources, and customize the course to fit their needs.

- NEW - NEW!
**More real-life applications**are included in this edition, in addition to updating many of your favorites. Examples and exercises throughout the text focus on real-life applications of mathematics and provide a modern context that will appeal to and motivate students. A comprehensive List of Applications appears at the beginning of the text.

- NEW - NEW!
**Test Your Word Power**To help students understand and master mathematical vocabulary, this new feature has been incorporated in each chapter summary. Key terms from the chapter are presented along with four possible definitions in a multiple-choice format. Answers and examples illustrating each term are also provided.

- NEW - NEW!
**Study Skills Workbook**A desk-light icon at key points in the text directs students to the*Study Skills Workbook*where they will learn how to use the textbook effectively, plan their homework, take notes, manage study time, and prepare for and take tests. They will find out*how*their brain learns and remembers, so they'll understand*why*the study skills activities will increase their success in this course.

- NEW - NEW!
**Diagnostic Pretest**A diagnostic pretest is now included at the beginning of the text and covers all the material in the book, much like a sample final exam. This pretest can be used to facilitate student placement in the correct chapter according to skill level.

- NEW - NEW!
**Chapter Openers**New chapter openers feature real-world applications of mathematics that are relevant to students and tied to specific material within the chapters. Examples of topics include cell phones, home improvements, and work/career applications.

- NEW - NEW!
**Increased Emphasis on Problem Solving**Introduced in Chapter 2, the six-step problem-solving method has been refined and integrated throughout the text. The six steps,*Read, Plan, Estimate, Solve, State the Answer,*and*Check*, are emphasized in boldface type and repeated in examples and exercises to reinforce the problem-solving process for students.

- NEW - NEW!
**Figures and Photos**Today's students are more visually oriented than ever. Thus, the authors have made a concerted effort to add mathematical figures, diagrams, tables, and graphs whenever possible. Many of the graphs use a style similar to that seen by students in today's print and electronic media. Photos have been incorporated to enhance applications in examples and exercises.

- Summary Exercises Four sets of in-chapter summary exercises on fractions, percent, perimeter, circumference, and area, and operations with signed numbers are included to give students additional practice on these typically difficult topics.

- Focus on Real-Data Applications These one-page activities present a relevant and in-depth look at how mathematics is used in the real world. Designed to help instructors answer the often-asked question, "When will I ever use this stuff?" these activities ask students to read and interpret data from newspaper articles, the Internet, and other familiar, real sources. The activities are well suited to collaborative work and can also be completed by individuals or used for open-ended classroom discussions. Instructor teaching notes and extensions for the activities are provided in the
*Printed Test Bank and Instructor's Resource Guide.*

- Calculator Tips These optional tips, marked with calculator icons, offer basic information and instruction for students using calculators in the course. A new
*Introduction to Calculators*has also been included at the beginning of the text, and problems suitable for calculator work are marked with an icon in the exercise sets.
