Student Solutions Manual

Provides completely worked-out solutions to the odd-numbered section exercises and to all exercises in the Now Trys, Relating Concepts, Chapter Reviews, Mixed Review, Chapter Tests, and Cumulative Reviews.

Balancing skills and concepts for the developmental student

- A
**teacherly writing style**walks students through key points of understanding with the aim of readability for the developmental math student. **Examples with pointers**provide tips from the authors for on-the-spot notes and cautions about common pitfalls.**Now Try Exercises**are included as a parallel margin exercise for each numbered example. These exercises immediately apply and reinforce the concepts and skills presented in corresponding examples.**Comprehensive exercise sets**balance students’ procedural skills with conceptual understanding to provide the optimal practice experience to master the topics. In this revision, the conceptual exercises in particular have been increased to ensure that students’ understanding goes beyond rote procedures.**Expanded**-**Concept Check exercises**have been increased in this revision. These exercises facilitate students’ conceptual understanding at the start of exercise sets, and often emphasize new vocabulary.- A type of Concept Check exercise,
**What Went Wrong exercises, have more than doubled in this revision**. These ask students to determine an error in a worked problem, to ensure that they understand common mistakes and realize why those errors are incorrect. Identifying and correcting a mistake requires a higher level of critical thinking. **Expanded - Relating Concepts exercises**have been increased in the revision. Relating Concepts exercise sets tie the topics together and highlight the relationships among various concepts and skills. They work well for individual or group work. These are assignable in MyLab Math.**Summary exercises**are carefully placed in every chapter to provide students with the all-important mixed review problems they need to master topics. Summaries of solution methods or additional examples are often included.- Additional exercises types include Extending Skills exercises, applications, matching, and fill-in-the-blank problems, all with the aim of arming students with a solid understanding of skills and concepts.
**End of chapter material**offers ample opportunity for review. At the end of every chapter, students will find Key Terms and Symbols, Quick Review summaries, Chapter Review exercises,*and*the all-important Mixed Review. They can also assess their understanding with a Chapter Test and Cumulative Review to retain what they’ve learned thus far.**Test Your Word Power exercises**in each Chapter Summary help students master mathematical vocabulary, so often a hurdle at this level.**Chapter Tests**include a fully worked out video solution for every exercise in the Chapter Test.

Resources to support any classroom

**Marge Lial** (late) was always interested in math; it was her favorite subject in the first grade! Marge's intense desire to educate both her students and herself has inspired the writing of numerous best-selling textbooks. Marge, who received Bachelor's and Master's degrees from California State University at Sacramento, was affiliated with American River College. An avid reader and traveler, her travel experiences often found their way into her books as applications, exercise sets, and feature sets. Her interest in archeology led to trips to various digs and ruin sites, producing some fascinating problems for her textbooks involving such topics as the building of Mayan pyramids and the acoustics of ancient ball courts in the Yucatan.

When **John Hornsby** enrolled as an undergraduate at Louisiana State University, he was uncertain whether he wanted to study mathematics education or journalism. His ultimate decision was to become a teacher, but after twenty-five years of teaching at the high school and university levels and fifteen years of writing mathematics textbooks, both of his goals have been realized. His love for both teaching and for mathematics is evident in his passion for working with students and fellow teachers as well. His specific professional interests are recreational mathematics, mathematics history, and incorporating graphing calculators into the curriculum. John's personal life is busy as he devotes time to his family (wife Gwen, and sons Chris, Jack, and Josh), and has been an avid baseball fan all of his life. John's other hobbies include numismatics (the study of coins) and record collecting. He loves the music of the 1960s and has an extensive collection of the recorded works of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

A native Midwesterner,** Terry McGinnis** received her Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education with a concentration in Mathematics from Iowa State University. She has taught elementary and middle school mathematics, and developed and implemented the curriculum used with her students. Terry has been involved in college mathematics publishing for over 20 years, working with a variety of authors on textbooks in both developmental mathematics and precalculus. After working behind the scenes on many of the Lial/Hornsby textbooks and supplements for over 10 years, Terry joined Margaret Lial and John Hornsby in 2002 as coauthor of their developmental mathematics series. When not working, Terry enjoys spinning at a local health club, walking, and reading fiction. She is the devoted mother of two sons, Andrew and Tyler.

**Callie Daniels **has always had a passion for learning mathematics and brings that passion into the classroom with her students. She attended the University of the Ozarks where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Secondary Mathematics Education. She has two master’s degrees: one in Applied Mathematics and Statistics from the University of Missouri—Rolla, the second in Adult Education from the University of Missouri—St. Louis. Her professional interests include improving success in the community college mathematics sequence, using technology to enhance students’ understanding of mathematics, and creating materials that support classroom teaching and student understanding. She is able to pursue these interests as a contributor on the Lial Developmental Math series, and a co-author on the Precalculus series.
