    "Our goal, quite simply, is to help today's students both learn and retain mathematical concepts. To achieve this goal, we feel that we must prepare developmental mathematics students for the transition from 'skills-oriented' elementary and intermediate algebra courses to more 'concept-oriented' college-level mathematics courses. This requires that we teach these same students critical thinking skills: to reason mathematically, to communicate mathematically, and to identify and solve mathematical problems." — The authors in the Preface (page xiii)
