Overview

Hall and Mercer's text is intended for schools that want a single book covering the standard topics from elementary algebra through intermediate algebra. The text is fully integrated, rather than being simply the joining of two, separate texts. Topics are organized not following the historical pattern, but by using as the guiding principles, the AMATYC standards as outlined in Crossroads in Mathematics. Beginning And Intermediate Algebra: The Language And Symbolism Of Mathematics is oriented toward recent reforms in college level mathematics curricula.
