This book has been designed to eliminate the overlap that commonly occurs in elementary and intermediate algebra textbooks. The first seven chapters cover material commonly taught in elementary algebra college courses, such as real numbers, linear equations, formulas, graphing, exponents, factoring, and rational expressions and equations. Angel (Monroe Community College) then incorporates intermediate algebra topics such as systems of equations, inequalities in one and two variables, roots, radicals, quadratic functions, logarithmic functions, conic sections, and the binomial theorem.
