Summary

Students will get more out of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra through George Woodbury's concise narrative and focused topic flow. By writing this text from the ground up as a single textbook, George has reduced the amount of overlap typically found in these courses and focused instead on providing more exercises and applications. As a result, your students will be better prepared for higher-level mathematics courses.
