Explorations in College Algebra, 5th edition and its accompanying ancillaries are designed to make algebra interesting and relevant to the student. The text adopts a problem-solving approach that motivates students to grasp abstract ideas by solving real-world problems. The problems lie on a continuum from basic algebraic drills to open-ended, non-routine questions. The focus is shifted from learning a set of discrete mathematical rules to exploring how algebra is used in the social, physical, and life sciences. The NEW KIME WileyPLUS Technology Update, 5e, was created to optimize student interactions in WileyPLUS with the addition of the new Math Enhancements including Intelligent Tutoring and graphing questions. The materials were developed in the spirit of the reform movement and reflect the guidelines issued by the various professional mathematics societies (including AMATYC, MAA, and NCTM).
