In Elementary Algebra, best-selling authors Alan S. Tussy and R. David Gustafson constantly reinforce the major concepts of algebra through a balance of traditional and reform teaching methods. Unlike many books that are simply repurposed to provide balance, Elementary Algebra's balanced approach was created from the ground up. The book's vocabulary, practice drills, and well-defined pedagogy are hallmarks of a traditional book, while its focus on problem solving, reasoning, communicating, and technology make it appealing to followers of reform as well. The book's foundation is a group of fundamental algebraic concepts that students will learn to master by the end of the course. Through numerous examples and exercises, students learn how to read, write, and think mathematically.
