First, he gets students engaged in the study of mathematics by highlighting truly relevant, unique, and engaging applications. He explores math the way it evolved: by describing real problems and how math explains them. In doing so, it answers the question When will I ever use this? Then, Blitzer keeps students engaged by ensuring they don't get lost when studying. Examples are easy to follow because of a three-step learning system - - See it, Hear it, Try it embedded into each and every one. He literally walks the student through each example by his liberal use of annotations - - the instructor's voice that appears throughout.
