Summary

The unifying theme of this text is the development of the skills necessary for solving equations and inequalities, followed by the application of those skills to solving applied problems. Every section ending in the text begins with six simple writing exercises. These exercises are designed to get students to review the definitions and rules of the section before doing more traditional exercises.
