Patient and clear in his explanations and problems, Pat McKeague helps students develop a thorough understanding of the concepts essential to their success in mathematics. Each chapter opens with a real-world application. McKeague builds from the chapter-opening applications, such as the average amount of caffeine in different beverages, and uses the application as a common thread to introduce new concepts, making the material more accessible and engaging for students. Diagrams, charts, and graphs are emphasized to help students understand the material covered in visual form. McKeague's unique and successful EPAS system of Example, Practice, Answer, and Solution actively involves students with the material and thoroughly prepares them for working the Problem Sets. The Sixth Edition of BASIC MATHEMATICS also features a robust suite of online course management, testing, and tutorial resources for instructors and students. This includes iLrn Testing and Tutorial, vMentor live online tutoring, the Digital Video Companion CD-ROM with MathCue, a Book Companion Web Site featuring online graphing calculator resources, and The Learning Equation (TLE), powered by iLrn. TLE provides a complete courseware package, featuring a diagnostic tool that gives instructors the capability to create individualized study plans. With TLE, a cohesive, focused study plan can be put together to help each student succeed in math.
