Reviewed by Sara Rabieh, Math Department Chair, Midlands Technical College on 7/13/21

Good explanation of some topics, but other topics could use more details (chapter 4, and piecewise functions). This textbook may not be representative of all the topics that are traditionally taught in trigonometry and college algebra. In our... read more

Reviewed by Swati Kelkar, Associate Professor, Bunker Hill Community College on 6/29/20

This textbook covers most topics expected in a standard College Algebra and Trigonometry course. A brief coverage of Matrices would have been ideal in a textbook like this. It could use some treatment of Partial Fraction Decomposition as well. read more

Chapters 1, 4, and 2 would cover the College Algebra Portion of Precalculus at our college. Chapter 4.7, 4.8; chapter 3, chapter 8.1, 8.2, and 8.3; chapter 9.1-9.5; chapter 10.1 and 10.2, and chapter 11.1 and 11.3 would cover our Precalculus... read more

The text book provides a very uniform platform for the topics included in a most Community College Algebra and Trigonometry class. Topics are organized in the increasing matter of difficulty ending at an intermediate level of learning. Most... read more

  • About the Book

    This College Algebra text will cover a combination of classical algebra and analytic geometry, with an introduction to the transcendental exponential and logarithmic functions. If mathematics is the language of science, then algebra is the grammar of that language. Like grammar, algebra provides a structure to mathematical notation, in addition to its uses in problem solving and its ability to change the appearance of an expression without changing the value.
