The Tobey/Slater/Blair/Crawford series builds essential skills one at a time by breaking the mathematics down into manageable pieces. This practical “building block” organization makes it easy for students to understand each topic and gain confidence as they move through each section. Students will find many opportunities to check and reinforce their understanding of concepts throughout the text. With this revision, the author team has added a new Math Coach feature that provides students with an office hour experience by helping them to avoid commonly made mistakes. With Tobey/Slater/Blair/Crawford, students have a tutor, a study companion, and now a coach, with them every step of the way.

From the Back Cover:

This book is designed to help a variety of readers bridge the gap between arithmetic and algebra. Slightly more rigorous than most arithmetic books -- but not as difficult or comprehensive as elementary algebra books -- it uses an innovative, integrated arithmetic/algebra approach that develops algebraic skills using "small steps," spirals topics throughout, emphasizes that algebra rules are just an extension of arithmetic, and teaches readers the specific study skills necessary to accommodate their individual learning styles -- including skills for "translating" the language of mathematics into plain English. Covers: Addition and Subtraction of Whole Number Expressions. Multiplication and division of Whole Number Expressions. Signed Numbers. Fractions and Ratio and Proportion. Equations and Polynomials. Fractional Expressions. Decimals and Percents and Radical Expressions. Graphing and Statistics. Measurement and Geometric Figures. For those with math anxiety or frustration who need to make the transition from arithmetic to algebra.
