Summary

Algebra for College Students, fourth edition, is written for students who have had the equivalent of one year of high school algebra. The content of the book is drawn from both intermediate algebra and college algebra and provides comprehensive coverage of the topics required in a strong one-term course in intermediate algebra or a one-term algebra for college students course. The goal of the Blitzer Algebra series is to provide students with a strong foundation in Algebra. Each text is designed to develop students' critical thinking and problem-solving capabilities and prepare students for subsequent Algebra courses as well as service math courses. Topics are presented in an interesting and inviting format, incorporating real world sourced data and encouraging modeling and problem-solving.
