"With only precalculus as a prerequisite, this text is aimed at students who are interested in exploring the interaction of algebra with computer technology." — From the back cover
This book was written "to provide a solid foundation in algebra for students who might have had no previous experience in algebra." This is a college textbook, which may also be used by an advanced high school student.
"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)
