We'd like to create a course that covers beginning and intermediate algebra in one course (8 hours a week), getting students ready to succeed in precalc and calculus. I am at a community college.
I would like textbook recommendations.
I'm not 100% sure yet of the topics. I think we'll do a tiny bit of trig, because that's the hardest thing in precalc. Something like: 1 - Equations 2 - Graphing 3 - Multiplying and Factoring, finding zeros 4 - Rational Expressions 5 - Roots and Quadratics (also absolute value functions) 6 - Exponential Functions and Logs 7 - Geometry and Trig
