About the Book

The primary goal of this textbook is to provide students and instructors with an introductory algebra textbook that is straightforward and provides the simplest and shortest explanation for each mathematical concept included in the book. To help make this book usable in a class lecture format, each topic is first defined in plain and concise language, and built on using numerous examples that increase in difficulty from simple to more challenging. Each section ends with more than enough exercises for a fifty minutes lecture and homework assignment.
