Book Description

This book includes content found in a typical algebra course, along with introductions to curve-fitting and display of data. The authors focus on three core themes throughout their textbook: Modeling, Functions, and Graphs. In their work of modeling and functions, the authors utilize the Rule of Four, which is that all problems should be considered using algebraic, numerical, graphical, and verbal methods.

The authors motivate students to acquire the skills and techniques of algebra by placing them in the context of simple applications that use real-life data.
