### Summary

This intermediate algebra text, based on standards in the AMATYC Crossroads document, motivates college math students to develop mathematical literacy and a solid foundation for future study in mathematics and other disciplines. This third book of a three-book series presents mathematical concepts and skills through relevant activities derived from real-life situations. These activities are meaningful to students because they illustrate how mathematics arises naturally from real-world situations and problems. The Mathematics in Action series is based on the assumption that students learn mathematics best by doing mathematics in a meaningful context. Therefore, the text takes a collaborative approach to learning. Students take an active role in their own learning by working in groups, thereby developing communication skills, a sense of independence, and a can-do attitude about mathematics. Technology is integrated throughout the book so that students learn to interpret real-life data numerically, symbolically, and graphically. Regardless of their level of preparation for the course, students can use this text to increase their knowledge of mathematics, their problem-solving skills, and their overall confidence in their ability to learn.
