Summary

PREALGEBRA extends the successful Streeter/Hutchison/Bergman/Hoelzle series of developmental mathematics worktexts to another course. The book combines Streeter's popular pedagogy, including active learning backed by Check Yourself exercises, with an "Early Equations" approach to prealgebra. Beginning in chapter 1, students are gradually exposed to key algebraic concepts such as variables and equations. The worktext is accompanied by numerous useful supplements, including a SMART CD-ROM, videos, and website.

Features:

• Active learning promoted throughout, especially in Check Yourself exercises after every example, with answers provided at the end of each section for immediate feedback
• Integrated Equations Approach: beginning in chapter 1, students are gradually exposed to key algebraic concepts such as variables and equations
• Extensive, graduated exercise sets including applications, challenge exercises, writing exercises, and collaborative exercises
• Cumulative Tests after every chapter
• Thorough coverage of geometry and measurement, including unit conversion
• Conversational, friendly, non-threatening writing style
• Overcoming Math Anxiety boxes provide study hints and other tips to help students succeed in math
• Marginal Notes and Caution icons
• Application Areas: each chapter opens with a real-world vignette that shows an example of how mathematics is used in a wide variety of professions.
