Open Source College Algebra Textbook

General Approach
The text focuses on the concept of a function and the exploration of the characteristics and applications of linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions. There is also a chapter on matrix methods for solving systems of equations. One of my colleagues and I have both used this text, and it is also being used by some Advanced College Placement (ACP) teachers in high schools.

Pedagogical Features
The text is organized in the same manner as many publisher's texts overall, but with a few significant differences, which are pointed out below.
