Amply illustrated, Topics in Algebra stresses fundamentals of the math you need to succeed in algebra. Because it so enriches our lives, algebra warrants your conscientious study:
Lenses, with which we probe the sky, study microbes, film nature's beauty, and strengthen weak eyes, are designs based on algebra’s simple parabola. Paraboloids reflect beams of light that guide ships; and pierce the darkness before you. They amplify signals from space; and reflect signals from missiles, satellites and speeding cars.
Topics in Algebra shows you how coefficients effect polynomial behavior; how you properly evaluate numeric expressions, and solve equations; and how you linearly program systems of equations, and inequalities, to produce useful solutions.
With innovative perspectives, Topics in Algebra covers essential features of algebra, which you, your parents, your math teacher, and students, from teens to college freshmen, will find engrossing and rewarding.

About the Author
Throughout the 50's and 60's, during early development of missile technology, the author produced, processed and analyzed data needed to evaluate performance of missiles' inertial guidance systems.
Throughout the 70's and 80's, he participated in network provisioning, while communication technology grew from black rotary-dial telephones to audio and video communication over hand-held mobile devices.
Throughout the 90's, he taught undergraduate math, and saw public education decline, until it became a national concern: Too many high school graduates needing remedial instruction in math. To help such math-deficient students, he wrote this book, and its companion, Topics in Arithmetic.
