This book deals with the algebraic apsects of the Quebec mathematics course numbered 436. The history of this course depicts a difficult and confusing path with results measured in failures and frustration. The course is meant for students expecting to go on to studies in the technical and scientific fields. Unfortunately, there has been a dearth of material to explain the course. The reality is that it has been a source of confusion for adminstrators, teachers, parents, and most unfortunately students.

Rob Shutler has attempted to leave the fighting aand finger pointing behind and concentrate on explaining the material. The book follows a traditional path and provides painstaking detail to explain each topic and provide a plethora of examples. The underlying feature of this book is its secure connection to the provincial exam that provides the final and ultimately deciding evaluation for students.

The book could be used as a textbook for classroom use, or as a stand alone resource for a committed, besieged student. It is an excellent foundation resource for any mathematics teacher.
