### Algebra I Topics by Design

*by Russell F. Jacobs*

This algebra book in our "design" series covers topics found in most first-year algebra programs. The topics are much like those in our *Algebra by Design* and *More Algebra by Design* books. However, there is no repetition of exercises. In general the exercises in this new book are at a higher level of difficulty than in the previous algebra books.
