The design of the writer of the following treatise has been chiefly to provide a convenient text book for his own classes. In the preparation of the work free use has been made of the Algebra of Lacroix and of Bourdon. The whole has however been written anew, and the subjects are in general presented in such a manner, as has been found by experiment to be well adapted to the business of elementary instruction. It is proposed to continue the subject in another volume, which will contain the theory of the higher equations, and also the application of Algebra to Geometry.
