Publisher : Wiley Release Date : 3. Algebra: Form and Function, 2nd Edition offers a fresh approach to algebra that focuses on teaching readers how to truly understand the principles, rather than viewing them merely as tools for other forms of mathematics. Meant for a College Algebra course, Algebra: Form and Function, 2nd Edition is an introduction to one of the fundamental aspects of modern society.
Algebraic equations describe the laws of science, the principles of engineering, and the rules of business. The power of algebra lies in the efficient symbolic representation of complex ideas, which also presents the main difficulty in learning it. It is easy to forget the underlying structure of algebra and rely instead on a surface knowledge of algebraic manipulations. Most students rely on surface knowledge of algebraic manipulations without understanding the underlying structure of algebra that allows them to see patterns and apply it to multiple situations: McCallum focuses on the structure from the start.
If you've been doing your graphing by hand, you've probably started noticing some relationships between the equations and the graphs.
The topic of function transformation makes these relationships more explicit. Let's start with the function notation for the basic quadratic:. Since the original function is being shifted downward by two units, then the new function is the old one, with a "minus two" tacked onto the end:. But the left-right shifting is backwards from what you might have expected.
This process will tell you where the x -values, and thus the graph, have shifted. At least, that's how I was able to keep track of things. Yes, I had trouble with this concept, too.
To shift the graph side to side, I need to add or subtract inside the argument of the function that is, inside the parentheses. To move to the left, I need counter-intuitively to add inside the parentheses. To move five units, I'll need to add 5 inside the parentheses. They've told me to shift to the right.

Algebra: Form and Function
Synopsis About this title Algebra: Form and Function was designed based on the fundamental goal for a student to foster understanding of algebraic structure - that is, an understanding of how the arrangements of symbols allows us to predict, for example, the behavior of a function or the number of solutions to an equation.
