Welcome to the website for College Algebra: Concepts & Contexts. The website has been designed to give you easy access to study materials and book supplements that will help you with your studies.

This text bridges the gap between traditional and reform approaches to algebra encouraging students to see mathematics in context. It presents fewer topics in greater depth, prioritizing data analysis as a foundation for mathematical modeling, and emphasizing the verbal, numerical, graphical and symbolic representations of mathematical concepts as well as connecting mathematics to real life situations drawn from the students' majors.
