Elementary Algebra

Harold Jacobs’ Elementary Algebra doesn’t look all that different from other algebra texts, but a quick glance through the chapters reveals a drastically different approach to teaching and learning math. Jacobs makes a point of connecting the concepts of algebra to the real world. The book offers more practice than most anyone could hope for (or stand). It’s a fantastic text for young people who are interested not only in getting through algebra but really getting it.
