Summary

This book offers a fresh approach to algebra that focuses on teaching readers how to truly understand the principles, rather than viewing them merely as tools for other forms of mathematics. It relies on a storyline to form the backbone of the chapters and make the material more engaging. Conceptual exercise sets are included to show how the information is applied in the real world. Using symbolic notation as a framework, business professionals will come away with a vastly improved skill set.
