This book describes an axiomatic development of the foundations of algebra, defining complex numbers that are used to find the roots of any quadratic equation. Advanced concepts involving complex numbers are also elaborated, including the roots of polynomials, functions and function notation, and computations with logarithms. This text also discusses trigonometry from a functional standpoint. The angles, triangles, and applications involving triangles are likewise treated. Other topics include analytic geometry, conic sections, and use of a coordinate system to prove theorems from plane, and matrix operations and inverses. This publication is valuable to students aiming to gain more knowledge of the fundamentals of mathematics.
