The goal of the authors in preparing the fifth edition of college algebra was to achieve greater rigor and more precision of language in the development of the conventional subject matter while still producing a teachable book. Since most freshmen now in college have had contact with the reformed mathematics curriculum, the authors have endeavored to incorporate the modern spirit, terminology, and methods.
