So much of what we teach in algebra consists of how to rearrange one expression into another that is equivalent. But, I think I’ve often lost site of that forest for the trees that clutter all of the techniques and rules. So, I wanted to establish early on in this course the idea of two expressions being equivalent due to the properties of real numbers that we had just worked with. I try to keep the examples relatively simple and the number crunching appropriate.
