Chrystal Introduction to Algebra: For the Use of Secondary Schools and Technical Colleges is the third edition of a textbook that is intended to be an elementary introduction to algebra for students. Chrystal’s textbook is structured as most textbooks are with each chapter dedicated to a different topic.
Topics include generalized arithmetic, fundamental laws of algebra, graphical representations of functions of a single variable, elementary theory of integral functions, irrational functions, ratio and proportion, and many more.
The author does a good job of covering all of the basics of algebra and each topic is presented alongside a series of study questions to be completed by students, with correct answers appearing at the back of the book.

The book progresses logically through the mathematical principles, with the basic and foundational theories presented first and the more advanced principles appearing near the end of the book.
This is a valuable resource for the mathematics learner.
Either be it for home study, or in a classroom Introduction to Algebra is an interesting and useful guide. I have gone as far as I dared, in the face of existing examination programmes, in cutting out book-work which has nothing to do with elementary theory or with practice.
In particular, I have excluded the treatment of subjects cnrystal depend on the theory of limits and convergency. The premature introduction of such subjects with loose and even misleading or false demonstrations has been one of the most glaring defects of our elementary mathematical text-books.

In this respect it is scarcely too much to say that many of them are half a century behind the age. Not only is teaching of this kind a waste of time, but it is an absolute obstruction to further progress. How deplor able the results are is well known to every examiner and university teacher.
