For courses inCollege Algebra. From there, the author shows a connection between application, modeling, and visualization. Showing why math mattersGary Rockswold doesn't just mention real-world examples; he teaches mathematical applications. Rockswold is 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).

I was going to wait until the end of the semester to write my review for this book, which I rented for a college algebra course, but I am so furious I can't wait. This book is useless. Absolutely, fundamentally and thoroughly useless. I would say it's not worth the paper it's printed on, but I rented the kindle version so I'll just say it's not worth the fossil fuel burned to display it. It's so poorly written that what I learned in less than 10 minutes in a Kahn Academy video took me over three hours of consideration in this book. The problems are too many to list, but the critical flaws with this book lie in the fact it uses extremely dense and complicated language, non-linear logic and messy page lay-outs with random information blurbs all over the place to communicate what are ultimately simple concepts. I have no idea who wrote this book but they need to be fired like yesterday. Sometimes the most important concepts are highlighted in red, sometimes they're off in the margins as if they don't matter at all, and sometimes a problem is presented with absolutely no introduction, and then solved with no explanation, and you're left stranded as the text barrels ahead with the next concept. The problems in the exercises stumped even the kind people who work in the tutoring center at my school, and have no correlation with the problems explained in the chapters. Meanwhile, the answer key has a hodgepodge of presentations of answers, some solved down to a number, others left as a ratio, with no rhyme or reason and none of the answers are explained. In fact, they're carelessly presented as a dense block of text with the number of the problem and then their answer next to it- which I can only count as insult to injury because they clearly never considered students with ADHD or dyslexia when they formatted this book.

Which brings me to the issue of usability, of which this book has NONE as a digital version. It's formatted like a PDF of a textbook page, portrait layout and all, meaning you have to scroll all over the place just to read the tiny type on their incredibly messy pages. It's a frustrating journey of clicks, drags and losing your place when you attempt to read it, which indicates to me that they put absolutely no thought AT ALL into how real humans interact with their kindles, phones or computers. Additionally, the way the text is formatted is nightmare to highlight or interact with. Highlighting one line of problems will often highlight random parts of another problem, and the utterly baffling floating blurbs can be accidentally highlighted in an attempt to highlight lines between paragraphs.

TL;DR: This book is a sadistic joke. Don't buy it. Learn what you need to know from Kahn Academy.
First off, I used amazon's rental on this. The book was delievred within time and was satified with the seller and the book itself. If you are wanting to save money, may I suggest going to the pearson web site and just simply purchasing the on line access becuase all of your homework is done on line through that access. There really is no need to have a book. pearson charges 90.00 or so for access.
I bought a brand new copy of College Algebra with Modeling & Visualization (5th Edition).
This product description states that it comes with:
Pearson eText - Access Card Package
Package consists of:
0321431308 / 9780321431301 MyMathLab/MyStatLab -- Glue-in Access Card
0321654064 / 9780321654069 MyMathLab Inside Star Sticker
0321826124 / 9780321826121 Algebra and Trigonometry with Modeling & Visualization

However, I looked through the whole book and in the box and the code is nowhere to be found.
I ordered this booklet for a course that my son will be attending in college. When I received the booklet, I wanted to see it for the content. As a retired math instructor, I was disappointed. The study guides and practice examples are good, but needs more indepth "step-by-step" instructions to the final answer. Definitely not worth the cost of the book and the key to the website.
Was buying the text book, got the teachers edition instead . Sure i got the answers to stuff but i cant sell this after the semester and the homework is online anyway so this overall was a waste of money ...
The Apotheoses of Lacspor
Not a great text. Has a tendency to make things much more complicated and drawn out than they have to be. I did well in the class, but only due to having a good instructor to interpret what the author was attempting to teach. I believe it would be very difficult to learn concepts using only this book. Unfortunately, if this is the text your institution has chosen, then I guess you're stuck with it.
another overpriced college text book
This does not have the access code for MyMathlab!
