Overview

The first book in Kaufmann's highly successful algebra series, ELEMENTARY ALGEBRA, Sixth Edition, develops algebraic concepts through numerous examples, and continuously reinforces those concepts through additional examples and applications in problem-solving situations. Foregoing excessive technical language and formalism, Kaufmann presents algebraic concepts in a simple, straightforward manner, making ELEMENTARY ALGEBRA an ideal book to learn and teach from.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I do like the organization. I like that once a skill is covered that skill is then used to solve equations. For example, adding/subtracting terms is covered, then linear equations... factoring is covered, then solving equations by factoring... simplifying rational expressions, then solving rational equations... simplifying radicals, then solving radical equations. I have used texts where those skills are all covered once and then all the equations are lumped together in a "solving equations" chapter. I tend to get bogged down in equations that way and students seem to get overwhelmed. I think the organization of this text is much better."- Meredith Williams, Campbell University

"This text provides a thorough but concise path from arithmetic to Intermediate Algebra and has readable text, relevant examples, and robust exercise sets."- Michael Carr, Mott Community College
