Overview

In the Sixth Edition of Tussy/Koenig's BASIC MATHEMATICS FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS WITH EARLY INTEGERS, new "Look Alikes" help you compare and contrast problem types to help you understand the correct meaning of the questions and determine the necessary steps to work the problem. The authors help you understand the language of mathematics and teach you how to read, write, and think like a mathematician.

Alan Tussy has taught all levels of developmental mathematics at Citrus College in Glendora, CA. He has written nine math books. An extraordinary author dedicated to his students' success, he is relentlessly meticulous and creative—a visionary who maintains a keen focus on the greatest challenges students face in Mathematics. Alan received his Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from University of Redlands and his Master of Science degree in Applied Mathematics from California State University, Los Angeles. He has taught across course and curriculum areas from prealgebra to differential equations. He is currently focusing on teaching courses related to Developmental Mathematics. Professor Tussy is a member of the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC).

A nationally recognized educator and author, Diane Koenig actively shaped several textbooks, ancillaries and series. Since 1982 when she helped develop the Gustafson/Frisk series to her work on the Tussy/Koenig/Gustafson series, Diane’s writing continues to reflect the expertise she gains from working with students in her Mathematics courses. Throughout her work, she integrates research-based strategies in Mathematics education. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Math Education from Illinois State University in 1980, and began her career at Rock Valley College in 1981, when she became the Math Supervisor for a newly formed Personalized Learning Center. Earning her Master's Degree in Applied Mathematics from Northern Illinois University in 1984, Diane, enjoys the distinction of being the first woman to become a full-time faculty member in the Mathematics department for Rock Valley College. In addition to being awarded AMATYC's Excellence in Teaching Award in 2015, she was chosen as the Rock Valley College Faculty of the Year by her peers in 2005, and the next year she was awarded the NISOD Teaching Excellence Award and the Illinois Mathematics Association of Community Colleges Award for Teaching Excellence. In addition to her teaching, she is an active member of the Illinois Mathematics Association of Community Colleges (IMACC), serving on the board of directors, on a state-level task force rewriting the course outlines for the Developmental Mathematics courses, and as the Association's newsletter editor.

  • A new "Look Alikes" feature builds student problem-recognition skills. It requires students to distinguish between similar problem types and then to select the correct strategy to solve the problem. Encountering such situations in the homework assignments will better prepare students for quizzes and tests.
  • A new page design has been used that places the Language of Mathematics, Success Tip, and Caution features in the margin for easier reading.
  • The authors present an extensive revision to a classic text that updates the real-world data that appears in the worked examples and Study Sets.
  • Many new application problems enhance the Study Sets that give students appropriate context for the topics they are studying and how they apply in a variety of occupations and vocations.
  • Research shows that higher order thinking skills develop best in social contexts.
  • WebAssign, is a flexible and fully customizable online instructional solution that puts powerful tools in the hands of teachers, enabling them to deploy assignments, instantly assess individual student performance, and realize their teaching goals.
  • With some questioning or prodding, students often demonstrate enhanced ability.
  • Vocabulary is a crucial part of concept formation.
  • To address this: The Study Sets include Concept problems that progressively build layers of understanding (called scaffolding) and Notation problems that guide students through each step of worked solutions.
  • More than 1.5 million students use WebAssign each year. In a recent study 85% of students stated they believe WebAssign positively impacted their exam grades.
  • To address this: Look Alike problems in each Study Set build student problem recognition skills and help them differentiate between similar looking problems.
  • Saving you time and improving students' results, WebAssign is the most widely used homework system in higher education--and it's integrated with the text. It allows you to assign, collect, grade, and record homework assignments via the web. It algorithmically generates variables in questions and provides question-specific student-support materials: electronic files from relevant parts of the textbook, videos of a similar exercise, active examples with worked out solutions, and robust tutorials.
  • Words play a fundamental role in forming a concept and subsequently become its symbol. To address this: We have The Language of Mathematics features in the margins and every Study Set begins with vocabulary problems.
  • The instructional features of this textbook are based on four important findings of educational research about the process of concept formation.
  • This text replicates the tone and style that instructors use in class. This lets the book "interact" with and engage students. For example, every worked example begins with Strategy and Why statements; and author notes placed to the right of each step of a solution are written in complete sentences to provide the detail students often need when learning a new topic.
  • Students need to compare and contrast problem types.
