Summary

Requiring no prerequisites, this book starts with basic arithmetic concepts, then gradually develops the theories and techniques of algebra, geometry and trigonometry.

Immediately after building a solid foundation in each area, readers are given numerous opportunities to solve real-life, arithmetic-related workplace problems. The authors take an innovative approach -- the Institute for Corporate Competitiveness' (ICC) TPRA Method (Teach-Practice-Review-Apply) -- to the teaching of applied mathematics.
