Instant access to download full textbook Solutions College Algebra with Applications for Business and Life Sciences 2nd Edition by Ron Larson

COLLEGE ALGEBRA WITH APPLICATIONS FOR BUSINESS AND LIFE SCIENCES, Second Edition, meets the demand for courses that emphasize problem solving, modeling, and real-world applications for business and the life sciences. The authors provide a firm foundation in algebraic concepts, and prompt students to apply their understanding to relevant examples and applications they are likely to encounter in college or in their careers. The program addresses the needs of students at all levels–and in particular those who may have struggled in previous algebra courses–offering an abundance of examples and exercises that reinforce concepts and make learning more dynamic. The early introduction of functions in Chapter 1 ensures compatibility with syllabi and provides a framework for student learning. Instructors can also opt to use graphing technology as a tool for problem solving and for review or retention.
