MyLab
By connecting applications, modeling, and visualization, Gary Rockswold motivates students to learn mathematics in the context of their experiences. In order to both learn and retain the material, students must see a connection between the concepts and their real lives. In this new edition, connections are taken to a new level with “See the Concept” features, where students make important connections through detailed visualizations that deepen understanding.
Rockswold is also known for presenting the concept of a function as a unifying theme, with an emphasis on the rule of four (verbal, graphical, numerical, and symbolic representations). A flexible approach allows instructors to strike their own balance of skills, rule of four, applications, modeling, and technology.
Incorporating MyMathLab^{®} prepares students for success and makes them think more visually, critically, and conceptually. Within the MyMathLab course, Getting Ready integrated review allows students to remediate "just-in-time," with prerequisite material. Video assessment questions help students have a more meaningful experience with the concepts presented. Also, interactive figures allow students to visualize difficult topics.
