1 + 1 = 1  An  Introduction to Boolean Algebra and Switching Circuits was originally published by Williamsville Publishing Company as part of their popular Tape ‘n Text Computer Math Series.  It has been expanded and republished  as Volume  4 in this new series. The paperback is intended for classroom  teachers,  students and as a reference  for libraries.

In elementary algebra 1 + 1 equals 2. In Boolean algebra 1 + 1 equals 1. Boolean algebra is not isomorphic (similar) to elementary algebra. However, Boolean algebra is isomorphic to logic. Knowledge of Boolean algebra and logic are needed in our modern world in order to explain how computers are designed and operate at the most basic levels. 

The three main operators in Boolean algebra and switching circuits are directly  related to logic. For example, in logic the Boolean algebra plus sign “+” means "OR" (disjunction) and the times sign “. " means  “AND"  ( conjunction ) and the prime mark or tilde “~" means “NOT" (negation in logic). Logic symbols will be used mainly in volume 3, “Introduction to Logic." 

In all four volumes of the “Computer Mathematics Series” new information is presented in short sections with immediate testing. This form of personalized instruction is often used in on-line Internet based courses for distance learning. A small amount of information is presented in each section before advancing to the next section. Exercises are listed after several sections followed by an answer key.
