On this single page website, there is a link at the bottom of the page that takes you to my Homepage. Near the top of my homepage, look for the link "Basic, Intermediate, and College Algebra: One Step at a Time", and choose either Intemediate Algebra (Chapter 5), or College Algebra (Chapter 2). There you will find explanations that may be easier to understand than your traditional textbooks, and many of the exercises from these sections are solved in color on the "MATH IN LIVING COLOR" pages that go with these sections. There are also VIDEOS of me teaching this topic a few years before I retired. These videos are FREE, and you can see them by looking on my Homepage for the link "Rapalje Videos in Living Color."
