Summary

The goal of this series is to provide readers with a strong foundation in Algebra. Each book is designed to develop readers' critical thinking and problem-solving capabilities and prepare readers 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. The Real Number System. Linear Equations and Inequalities in One Variable. Problem Solving. Linear Equations and Inequalities in Two Variables. Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities. Exponents and Polynomials. Factoring Polynomials. Rational Expressions. Roots and Radicals. Quadratic Equations and Functions. For anyone interested in introductory and intermediate algebra and for the combined introductory and intermediate algebra.
