Algebra I Topics by Design

by Russell F. Jacobs

This algebra book in our "design" series covers topics found in most first-year algebra programs. The topics are much like those in our Algebra by Design and More Algebra by Design books. However, there is no repetition of exercises. In general the exercises in this new book are at a higher level of difficulty than in the previous algebra books.
