Basic Mathematics for College Students, Tussy A.S., Gustafson R.D., Koenig D.R., 2011.

   Basic Mathematics for College Students, Fourth Edition, is more than a simple upgrade of the third edition. Substantial changes have been made to the worked example structure, the Study Sets, and the pedagogy. Throughout the revision process, our objective has been to ease teaching challenges and meet students’ educational needs.
Mathematics, for many of today’s developmental math students, is like a foreign language. They have difficulty translating the words, their meanings, and how they apply to problem solving. With these needs in mind (and as educational research suggests), our fundamental goal is to have students read, write, think, and speak using the language of mathematics. Instructional approaches that include vocabulary, practice, and well-defined pedagogy, along with an emphasis on reasoning, modeling, communication, and technology skills have been blended to address this need.

Make the Commitment.
Starting a new course is exciting, but it also may be a little frightening. Like any new opportunity, in order to be successful, it will require a commitment of both time and resources. You can decrease the anxiety of this commitment by having a plan to deal with these added responsibilities.

Set Your Goals for the Course. Explore the reasons why you are taking this course. What do you hope to gain upon completion? Is this course a prerequisite for further study in mathematics? Maybe you need to complete this course in order to begin taking coursework related to your field of study. No matter what your reasons, setting goals for yourself will increase your chances of success. Establish your ultimate goal and then break it down into a series of smaller goals; it is easier to achieve a series of short-term goals rather than focusing on one larger goal.

Keep a Positive Attitude. Since your level of effort is significantly influenced by your attitude, strive to maintain a positive mental outlook throughout the class. From time to time, remind yourself of the ways in which you will benefit from passing the course. Overcome feelings of stress or math anxiety with extra preparation, campus support services, and activities you enjoy. When you accomplish short-term goals such as studying for a specific period of time, learning a difficult concept, or completing a homework assignment, reward yourself by spending time with friends, listening to music, reading a novel, or playing a sport.
