A mathematician reveals the hidden beauty, power, and--yes--fun of algebra

What comes to mind when you think about algebra? For many of us, it's memories of dull or frustrating classes in high school. Award-winning mathematics professor G. Arnell Williams is here to change that. Algebra the Beautiful is a journey into the heart of fundamental math that proves just how amazing this subject really is.

Drawing on lessons from twenty-five years of teaching mathematics, Williams blends metaphor, history, and storytelling to uncover algebra's hidden grandeur. Whether you're a teacher looking to make math come alive for your students, a parent hoping to get your children engaged, a student trying to come to terms with a sometimes bewildering subject, or just a lover of mathematics, this book has something for you. With a passion that's contagious, G. Arnell Williams shows how each of us can grasp the beauty and harmony of algebra.
