College Algebra in Context is designed for a course in algebra that is based on data

analysis, modeling, and real-life applications from the management, life, and social

sciences. The text is intended to show students how to analyze, solve, and interpret

problems in this course, in future courses, and in future careers. At the heart of this text

is its emphasis on problem solving in meaningful contexts.

The text is application-driven and uses real-data problems that motivate interest

in the skills and concepts of algebra. Modeling is introduced early, in the discussion

of linear functions and in the discussion of quadratic and power functions. Additional

models are introduced as exponential, logarithmic, logistic, cubic, and quartic functions

are discussed. Mathematical concepts are introduced informally with an emphasis

on applications. Each chapter contains real-data problems and extended application

projects that can be solved by students working collaboratively.

The text features a constructive chapter-opening Algebra Toolbox, which reviews

previously learned algebra concepts by presenting the prerequisite skills needed for

successful completion of the chapter. In addition, a section on calculus preparation at

the end of the text emphasizes how students can use their new knowledge in a variety

of calculus courses.
