"Prealgebra, An Integrated Equations Approach, Second Edition", utilizes an integrated equations approach that pairs arithmetic concepts alongside corresponding algebraic concepts. In this way, students gradually build their confidence dealing with basic algebra concepts and are better prepared for an introductory algebra course. In "Prealgebra", integers ,fractions, and decimals are used frequently after their initial introduction, developing students' comfort with them. "Prealgebra" is a part of "The Streeter Series in Developmental Mathematics" that is built on the idea that students learn mathematics by doing mathematics. With this, the authors encourage students to take a step, check their progress, and then build on the concepts learned. The key feature of this text, "Check Yourself" exercises keep students active and involved throughout the book. Other emphases of the series include clear, user-friendly writing; an accessible, uncluttered look that encourages learning; overcoming students' math anxiety; and the consistent use of dimensional analysis.

About the Author:

Don began teaching in a preschool while he was an undergraduate. He subsequently taught children with disabilities, adults with disabilities, high school mathematics, and college mathematics. Although each position offered different challenges, it was always breaking a challenging lesson into teachable components that he most enjoyed.

It was at Clackamas Community College that he found his professional niche. The community college allowed him to focus on teaching within a department that constantly challenged faculty and students to expect more. Under the guidance of Jim Streeter, Don learned to present his approach to teaching in the form of a textbook. Don has also been an active member of many professional organizations. He has been president of ORMATYC, AMATYC committee chair, and ACM curriculum committee member. He has presented at AMATYC, ORMATYC, AACC, MAA, ICTCM, and a variety of other conferences.

Above all, he encourages you to be involved, whether as a teacher or as a learner. Whether discussing curricula at a professional meeting or homework in a cafeteria, it is the process of communicating an idea that helps one to clarify it.
