This 59-page college algebra textbook was written specifically for high school and university students, and their instructors. It covers all foundational topics in college algebra. Concise, yet complete and logical, the book is based on the learning principle of moving "from elementary to complex.” Each topic is introduced by a straight-to-the-point, one-page "lecture" that logically explains the main concepts with graphics, diagrams and easy-to-understand algebraic notation. Instructors will find the book indispensible to preparing their lectures and in addressing the common weaknesses and misconceptions of their students.
