Features + Benefits Activities-based learning allows students to take an active role in their learning. Each chapter contains thematic clusters, which in turn contain activities that cover specific concepts and skills. To complete an activity, students write directly in their books, answering questions, completing tables, and manipulating real information to develop mathematical understanding. The variety of activities within each cluster allows instructors to customize the text to fit the needs and interests of their students. Lab Activities are in-class group exercises that provide intriguing, real-data applications that help students integrate and apply the mathematical concepts they have learned, and solidify their comprehension of the material in class. Project Activities give students the opportunity to practice the skills and concepts they have learned, either independently or in groups. Review exercises offer ample opportunity for students to review and practice what they have learned. Skills Check exercises occur periodically throughout the text to provide ample practice with basic skills. What Have I Learned? review exercises require students to reflect on recently presented concepts. This feature also prepares students for upcoming material by helping them develop a strong foundation. How Can I Practice? exercises at the end of each cluster are an important self-assessment tool. They show students how to apply recently-covered concepts and give students a chance to practice key skills. Gateway Review exercises conclude each chapter. These exercises help students assess their understanding of the chapter concepts and then synthesize those concepts with material from previous chapters. Students can use graphing calculators where appropriate as a problem-solving resource to help visualize concepts and reinforce skills. Keystroke instructions are provided to help students become comfortable with the technology, and a graphing calculator icon flags exercises where a calculator is useful. Appendix icons are included throughout the text to let students know when they can refer to one of five appendices for extra help and practice.
