About the Author

Elayn Martin-Gay, University of New Orleans

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. 

 

Prentice Hall is pleased to announce the new Third Editions of Basic College Mathematics, Introductory Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, and Algebra A Combined Approach and two new first editions, Basic College Mathematics with Early Integers, and Developmental Mathematics. Elayn Martin-Gay also authors a best-selling ©2005 hardback series in developmental mathematics.

 

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 originated the Chapter Test Prep Video CDs to help students during their most “teachable moment” ---as they prepare for a test.

 

Elayn’s experience has made her aware of how busy instructors are and what a difference quality supports make. For this reason, she created the Instructor-to-Instructor video series. These videos provide instructors with suggestions for presenting specific math topic 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 CDs useful for review. They are a great resource for suggestions regarding areas they may wish to emphasize, or common trouble areas students experience, that instructors my wish to highlight.

 

With her textbooks series, the Chapter Test Prep Video Cd, and CD Lecture series, Elayn has sought to put success within the reach of every student and instructor.

I am 43 years old and needed to take algebra to finish my AS degree. I have not taken an algebra class in 30 years. This book was the required textbook for my class.

I found this book very organized. In fact it was so organized I rarely needed to take notes on all the rules of algebra. This book helped me to review at the end of each section with the needed sample problems and reviews. It even had up-to-date pictures with algebraic problems that solved real life practical problems.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that needs to understand the basics of algebra.

Excellent book explains in detail. I wa able to understand it better than my professor. She's a hot mess. The book is pretty much self explanatory.

The product was adequate for my classes. The only drawback when having a different college oriented same product was that cd's were not added to this particular book and I find them very helpful in my learing. Other than that the product was what I wanted. Thank you,.

This book has helped me break down Algebra to a basic form for my son.
He has a learning disability and he gets it it may take practice but having the foundation of the problems the way they are presented is very helpful as well as the self test.

The book is in great condition... however I was unaware that it was the "Annotated Instructor's Edition". I did not enjoy opening the package to find this out. Letting people know exactly what they are buying would be a good thing.
