Overview

The many factors that contributed to the success of the first two editions have been retained. In preparing this edition, I considered the comments and suggestions of colleagues throughout the country, students, and many users of the prior editions. The AMATYC Crossroads in Mathematics: Standards for Introductory College Mathematics before Calculus and the MAA and NCTM standards (plus Addenda), together with advances in technology, also influenced the writing of this text.

Beginning Algebra, Third Edition is part of a series of texts that can include Basic College Mathematics, Prealgebra, Third Edition, Intermediate Algebra, Third Edition, or Intermediate Algebra: A Graphing Approach, Second Edition, and Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, Second Edition, a combined algebra text. Throughout the series, pedagogical features are designed to develop student proficiency in algebra and problem solving, and to prepare students for future courses.
