When Julie Miller began writing her successful developmental math series, one of her primary goals was to bridge the gap between preparatory courses and college algebra. For thousands of students, the Miller/O’Neill/Hyde (or M/O/H) series has provided a solid foundation in developmental mathematics. With the Miller College Algebra series, Julie has carried forward her clear, concise writing style; highly effective pedagogical features; and complete author-created technological package to students in this course area.
The main objectives of the college algebra series are three-fold:
•Provide students with a clear and logical presentation of the basic concepts that will prepare them for continued study in mathematics.
•Help students develop logical thinking and problem-solving skills that will benefit them in all aspects of life.
•Motivate students by demonstrating the significance of mathematics in their lives through practical applications.
