Algebra and Trigonometry, 4th Edition

By Cynthia Young

Algebra and Trigonometry, 4th edition uses a clear, single voice that speaks to students and mirrors how their instructors communicate during lectures. This allows instructors and learners to successfully “bridge the gap” between classroom instruction and independent self-paced homework. Cynthia Young’s hallmark pedagogy enables students to become independent, successful learners as they engage in varied exercise types and modeling projects. WileyPLUS provides a flexible platform with customizable content to elevate students’ experience in the modern classroom. Enjoy the freedom to move forward in the course by addressing student preparation or remediation through built-in refresher material. Algorithmic auto-graded homework questions and adaptive practice with many viewable metrics and analytics provide a comprehensive, data-driven approach to engage students.

GeoGebra enables symbolic palette entry and real-time manipulations of graphs to boost conceptual understanding utilizing automatic feedback and worked answers

New in WileyPLUS, symbolic palette and graphing questions powered by GeoGebra give instructors the ability to assign more complex auto-graded questions to improve conceptual understanding in math.  Boost your homework assessments with flexible, accurate, and reliable symbolic palette entry and real-time manipulation of graphs.

WileyPLUS users will have best-in-class math assessment with unique features including:
-randomization to ensure each student gets a different question
-each question is automatically marked and includes a full worked solution
-assessment of advanced math topics such as differential equations and matrices

Adaptive Practice

offers students unlimited practice at the learning objective level for all chapters and sections in the program, providing a clear and actionable plan to help identify knowledge gaps. Instructors benefit from actionable analytics that show exactly where each student is excelling, as well as where the class is on topics and learning objectives.

Author Lecture Videos

Cynthia Young’s over 270 instructional videos mirror the instructor’s voice outside the classroom. The Cynthia Young Lecture Videos provide worked examples of the most difficult concepts in each chapter and section of the course.

Interactive Animations

demonstrate core material. The Interactive Animations help students build a solid base of conceptual understanding of the early material covered in algebra. These animations reinforce skills with Skill Checks throughout the viewing process.

Cynthia Y. Young is the Dean of the College of Science and Professor of Mathematics at Clemson University and the author of College Algebra, TrigonometryAlgebra and Trigonometry, and Precalculus. She holds a BA in Secondary Mathematics Education from the University of North Carolina(Chapel Hill), an MS in Mathematical Sciences from UCF, and both an MS in Electrical Engineering and a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Washington. She has taught high school in North Carolina and Florida, developmental mathematics at Shoreline Community College in Washington, and undergraduate and graduate students at UCF.

Prior to her leadership role at Clemson, Dr. Young was a Pegasus Professor of Mathematics and the Vice Provost for Faculty Excellence and UCF Global at the University of Central Florida (UCF). Dr. Young joined the faculty at UCF in 1997 as an assistant professor of mathematics, and her primary research area was the mathematical modeling of the atmospheric effects on propagating laser beams. Her atmospheric propagation research was recognized by the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award, and in 2007 she was selected as a fellow of the International Society for Optical Engineering. Her secondary area of research centers on improvement of student learning in mathematics. She has authored or co-authored over 60 books and articles and has served as the principal investigator or co-principal investigator on projects with more than $2.5 million in federal funding. Dr. Young was on the team at UCF that developed the UCF EXCEL program, which was originally funded by the National Science Foundation to support the increase in the number of students graduating with a degree in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The EXCEL learning community approach centered around core mathematics courses has resulted in a significant increase in STEM graduation rates and has been institutionalized at UCF.
