"This book approaches the teaching of algebra to first year undergraduate students with a unique use of the art’s history and development. Students that have already encountered many of these topics in a traditional format in high school or college may find this engaging framework a boon to understanding."

"The book is well organized and thorough. The authors take a conglomeration of discoveries and inventions over three millennia and present them in an ordered, coherent manner."

"The book was clearly written with extreme care, and for such a large first edition... I fully expect to make frequent use of the text as a resource for material to incorporate in my current classes, including mathematical content courses for elementary school teachers."
