About the Author

An award-winning instructor and best-selling author, Elayn Martin-Gay has taught mathematics at the University of New Orleans for more than 25 years. Her numerous teaching awards include the local University Alumni Association’s Award for Excellence in Teaching, and Outstanding Developmental Educator at University of New Orleans, presented by the Louisiana Association of Developmental Educators.

 

Prior to writing textbooks, Elayn developed an acclaimed series of lecture videos to support developmental mathematics students in their quest for success. These highly successful videos originally served as the foundation material for her texts. Today, the videos are specific to each book in the Martin-Gay series. Elayn also pioneered the Chapter Test Prep Video to help students as they prepare for a test–their most “teachable moment!”

 

Elayn’s experience has made her aware of how busy instructors are and what a difference quality support makes. For this reason, she created the Instructor-to-Instructor video series. These videos provide instructors with suggestions for presenting specific math topics and concepts in basic mathematics, prealgebra, beginning algebra, and intermediate algebra. Seasoned instructors can use them as a source for alternate approaches in the classroom. New or adjunct faculty may find the videos useful for review.

 

Her textbooks and acclaimed video program support Elayn's passion of helping every student to succeed. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Very clean and book in good shape.

The description clearly states that the book comes with the access code but it does not.

Nevertheless, it is worth the money.

I purchased this as an E-book with the intention of only using the online access code. My class does not use the actual textbook and all work is done online. I need the access code in order to sign on, but this does not supply you with it. If you are using the ACTUAL book, this is everything you need. However, I am incredibly dissapointed because half of the cost of this book goes towards its "advancements with use of youtube, mymathlab, and iphone apps."
If its so "up to date", why didn't it give me the access code so I can actually make use of this shit?!

Very few stickers. Good price. Was the correct book. This is actually a difficult book to track down due to the fact that there are so many versions.

The loose leaf edition allowed me to only take to class what I needed to have. Thus a lot less weight to carry!

I am very happy with the seller and the item. She sent it out right away so I received the book just in time for summer classes to start. The book was exactly as described . Actually the condition was better than described. The cover had a few smudges that came off in a second with an eraser so now it looks good as new ! Thank you !

The description clearly states that the book comes with the access code but it does not. I also bought the book as brand new but I received it with what looked like dirt smears on the front and back cover. The box it came in was clean and the book was covered in bubble wrap. (which was also clean) So wtheck?

I am pleased with the purchase due to the fact that it is the book is what we needed for the class and it did include the access code; however, I am not pleased with the packaging and the delivery date was a day late. Upon receipt, the bottom right corner of the front cover and the bottom binding of the book were dented as if someone had dropped the book before packaging it. I intend to sell the book back to amazon after the class is over; however, I am uncertain if the dents will hinder the buyback. If so, I will be very displeased with this purchase. I also ordered a Microbiology book a few days previous to this purchase and it also had packaging issues. It was a new book but did not have the plastic wrap on it and the first 4 pages each had 2 tears at the bottom of them in the middle of the page.
