I no longer have access to the Leinwand et al. book, which has 921 pages, plus 165 additional pages at the end. The 482-page Shute book is somewhere in the attic.
I still have fond memories of my 9th-grade Algebra I textbook, which had about 350 pages. The last topic we covered involved graphing quadratic functions and identifying the Focus and the Directrix. The following are some of the messages where I have paid homage to my teacher Miss. Phoebe Fitzpatrick.
