The book should be useful to at least four teaching audiences: 1. college professors teaching remedial math courses 2. High school teachers teaching intensive \catch-up" math courses, such as Algebra II, in a summer session 3. Other math professionals teaching preparatory courses for college placement, such as for the scholastic aptitude test 4. Math-trained professionals who are engaged in home-schooling efforts. A fifth audience is, of course, students who will be involved in these programs
