Hall and Mercer's text is intended for schools that want a single book covering the standard topics from elementary algebra through intermediate algebra. The text is fully integrated, rather than being simply the joining of two, separate texts. Topics are organized not following the historical pattern, but by using as the guiding principles, the AMATYC standards as outlined in Crossroads in Mathematics. BEGINNING AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA: THE LANGUAGE AND SYMBOLISM OF MATHEMATICS is oriented toward recent reforms in college level mathematics curricula.

This book has been written from the ground up as an integrated, combined book.
The authors have used the AMATYC Standards as a guiding document in writing the book.
The use of the graphing calculator is assumed, and the authors use the graphing calculator to explain a large number of real-data applications.
Concepts are presented using "Rule of Four" (multiple representations of mathematical solutions to problems, including graphical, algebraic, numerical, and verbal approaches).
"Multiple Perspectives" text boxes feature two or more of the Rule of Four approaches (numerical, algebraic, graphical, verbal) to solving a given problem.
