Algebra

This text is prepared to meet the needs of the student who will continue his mathematics as far as the calculus, and is written in the Spirit of applied mathematics. This does not imply that algebra for the. Engineer is a different subject from algebra for the college man or for the secondary student who is prepared to take such a course. In fact, the topics which the engineer must emphasize, such as numerical computations, checks, graphical methods, use of tables, and the solution of specific problems, are among the most vital fea tures of the subject for any student. But important as these topics are, they do not comprise the substance of algebra, which enables it to serve as part of the foundation for future work. Rather they furnish an atmosphere in which that foundation may be well and intelligently laid.

The concise review contained in the first chapter covers the topics which have direct bearing on the work which follows. No attempt is made to repeat all of the definitions of elementary algebra. It is assumed that the student retains a certain residue from his earlier study of the subject.

The quadratic equation is treated with unusual care and thorough ness. This is done not only for the purpose of review, but because a mastery of the theory of this equation is absolutely necessary for effective work in analytical geometry and calculus. Furthermore, a student who is well grounded in this particular is in a position to appreciate the methods and results of the theory of the general equation with a minimum of effort.

The theory of equations forms the keystone of most courses in higher algebra. The chapter on this subject is developed gradually, and yet with pointed directness, in the hope that the processes which students often perform in a perfunctory manner will take on additional life and interest.
