Elementary Algebra 2e is designed to meet scope and sequence requirements for a one-semester elementary algebra course. The book’s organization makes it easy to adapt to a variety of course syllabi. The text expands on the fundamental concepts of algebra while addressing the needs of students with diverse backgrounds and learning styles. Each topic builds upon previously developed material to demonstrate the cohesiveness and structure of mathematics.
The second edition contains detailed updates and accuracy revisions to address comments and suggestions from users. Dozens of faculty experts worked through the text, exercises and problems, graphics, and solutions to identify areas needing improvement. Though the authors made significant changes and enhancements, exercise and problem numbers remain nearly the same in order to ensure a smooth transition for faculty. The first edition of Elementary Algebra by OpenStax is available in web view here.
This is the highest-quality affordably-priced printed OpenStax textbook available. As OpenStax's premier print partner, XanEdu prints all OpenStax textbooks in hardcover full-color versions, and a paperback version with B&W interior pages. The hardcover and paperback versions are exactly the same as the free OpenStax digital textbook which is available for free digital download at the OpenStax website, but as many students prefer the convenience of a printed textbook, we work directly with OpenStax to provide affordable print textbook options for students.
