Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: A Combined Approach – Kaufmann & Schwitters – 5th Edition


With a reputation built on clear and concise exposition, numerous examples, and plentiful problem sets, Kaufmann and Schwitters’ ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA: A APPROACH consistently reinforces the following common thread: learn a skill; practice the skill to help solve equations; and then apply what you have learned to solve application problems.

This traditional, straightforward approach has helped many grasp and apply the fundamental problem-solving skills necessary for future mathematics courses. Algebraic ideas are developed in a sequence, and in an easy-to-read manner, without excessive and formalism.

The Sixth Edition’s open and uncluttered design helps keep focused on the concepts while minimizing distractions. Problems and examples reference a broad range of topics, as well as career areas such as electronics, mechanics, and health, showing students that mathematics is part of everyday life.
