Dev Math Series

The Rockswold-Krieger developmental series gives meaning to the numbers that students encounter by developing concepts in context through the use of applications, multiple representations, and visualization. By seeing the context before being given the abstract math concept, students make math part of their own experiences instead of memorizing disjoint techniques. Research shows that this method is essential to empowering students. Seamlessly integrated meaningful data and visuals prepare students for future math courses—and life—by teaching them skills, critical thinking, and problem-solving.

Interactive Dev Math

Interactive Developmental Mathematics is a one-of-kind digital experience built from the ground up in MyMath Lab to model the way today’s students learn and interact online.  This product is much more than an e-book—it is a personal tutor that guides students step-by-step through each objective, including helping students identify where extra help is needed.  Students practice as they learn, test their understanding at the learning level, and pursue a personalized study plan.  This interactive course simplifies the path to success for students in developmental mathematics.

Precalculus Series

This series appropriately connects applications, modeling, and visualization to mathematical concepts and skills.  By consistently giving meaning to the equations and allowing students to learn mathematics in the context of their experiences, success rates increase.  The concept of a function with multiple representations is a unifying theme throughout.  These texts are designed to prepare students with the essential skills necessary to pursue careers requiring technical knowledge.  A flexible approach and a wide variety of examples and exercises allow instructors to strike their own balance and meet the needs of their students.
