KEY MESSAGE:George Woodbury's Algebra Seriesempowers students for future success in college-level math courses through its early-and-often approach to functions and graphing, integrated study strategies, and quality exercise sets that encourage true conceptual understanding. 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. Review of Real Numbers, Linear Equations, Graphing Linear Equations, Systems of Equations, Exponents and Polynomials, Factoring and Quadratic Equations, Rational Expressions and Equations, Transition, Radical Expressions and Equations, Quadratic Equations, Functions, Logarithmic and Exponential Functions, Conic Sections, Sequences, Series, and the Binomial Theorem MARKET: For all readers interested in Algebra.
