New edition of a text that overlaps between typical beginning and intermediate algebra texts. Lial (American River College) and Hornsby (U. of New Orleans) have organized the 14 chapters to accommodate the early introduction of functions and graphing lines in a rectangular coordinate system, thus providing students with important concepts that will be an integral part of later mathematics courses. Subsequent chapters cover linear equations, lines and graphing, lines and inequalities, sequences and series, and other related topics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
