Note: This text is written for college students who have had the equivalent of one year of high school algebra. Generally classified as intermediate algebra, the topoics included in this text prepare students for more advanced courses, such as collegre algebra, trigonomy, technical mathematics, statistics, short calculus, compture scicence, and finite mathematics.

The basic concepts of algebra are presented in a simple, straightforward manner. Algebraic ideas are developed in a logical sequence, through examples, continuously reinforced through additional examples, and then applied in a variety of problem-solving situations. In the examples, students are guided to organize their work and to decide when a meaningful shortcut might be used.
