By James Stewart, Lothar Redlin, Saleem Watson, Phyllis Panman

This article bridges the distance among conventional and reform methods to algebra encouraging scholars to work out arithmetic in context. It offers fewer themes in better intensity, prioritizing information research as a starting place for mathematical modeling, and emphasizing the verbal, numerical, graphical and symbolic representations of mathematical innovations in addition to connecting arithmetic to genuine existence events drawn from the scholars' majors.
