This text bridges the gap between traditional algebra texts and reform texts, written to promote the AMATYC standards published as Crossroads in Mathematics. It provides students with a sound traditional mathematical foundation, fully integrates graphing calculator technology, and encourages computer activities-while still offering choices on the amount of technology instructors wish to use.
