Summary

While using Intermediate Algebra, Second Edition, you will find that the text focuses on building competence and confidence. The authors present the concepts, show how to do the math, and explain the reasoning behind it in a language you can understand. The text ties concepts together using the Algebra Pyramid, which will help you see the big picture of algebra. The skills Carson presents through both the Learning Strategy boxes and the Study System, introduced in the Preface and incorporated throughout the text, will not only enhance your algebra experience but will also help you succeed in future college courses.
