Several versions of Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products exist for each title, including customized versions for individual schools, and registrations are t transferable. In addition, you may need a CourseID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products. Packages Access codes for Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products may t be included when purchasing or renting from companies other than Pearson; check with the seller before completing your purchase. Used or rental books If you rent or purchase a used book with an access code, the access code may have been redeemed previously and you may have to purchase a new access code. Access codes Access codes that are purchased from sellers other than Pearson carry a higher risk of being either the wrong ISBN or a previously redeemed code. Check with the seller prior to purchase. -- Intermediate Algebra by Trigsted, Gallaher, and Bodden is the first online, completely clickable Intermediate Algebra text to take full advantage of MyMathLab's features and benefits. Kirk Trigsted saw marked improvements in student learning when he started teaching with MyMathLab, but he ticed that most students started their assignments by going directly to the MyMathLab homework exercises without consulting their textbook. This inspired Kirk to write a true eText, built within MyMathLab, to create a dynamic, seamless learning experience that would better meet the needs and expectations of his students. Completely clickable and fully integrated-the Trigsted eText is designed for today's learners. Intermediate Algebra is also available with two printed resources to provide additional support for your classroom: * The eText Reference is a spiral-bound, printed version of the eText that provides a place for students to do practice work and summarize key concepts from the online videos and animations. In addition to the benefits it provides students, the eText Reference also provides portability for those instructors that prefer a printed text for class preparation. * The Guided Notebook is an interactive workbook that guides students through the course by asking them to write down key definitions and work through important examples for each section of the eText. This resource is available in a three-hole-punched, unbound format to provide the foundation for a personalized course tebook. Students can integrate their class tes and homework tes within the appropriate section of the Guided Notebook. Instructors can customize the Guided Notebook files found within MyMathLab. This package contains the MyMathLab Access Kit and the Guided Notebook.|
