#### Description

College Algebra is an introductory text for a college algebra survey course. The material is presented at a level intended to prepare students for Calculus while also giving them relevant mathematical skills that can be used in other classes. The authors describe their approach as "Functions First/" believing introducing functions first will help students understand new concepts more completely. Each section includes homework exercises/ and the answers to most computational questions are included in the text (discussion questions are open-ended). Graphing calculators are used sparingly and only as a tool to enhance the Mathematics/ not to replace it. The authors also offer a Precalculus version of this text/ which has two extra chapters covering Trigonometry.
