Prealgebra: A Worktext provides students with both an introduction to algebra and a learning tool for reviewing basic arithmetic skills. Selected topics from algebra are integrated with the topics from arithmetic in such a way that the students can strengthen their arithmetic skills and become comfortable with the use of variables, negative numbers, algebraic expressions, and techniques for solving equations. The style of writing gives carefully worded, thorough explanations that are direct, easy to understand, and mathematically accurate. An increased amount of white space makes it possible for students to work out each problem within the text. The new, full-color design as well as the addition of high quality images and graphics create an inviting atmosphere for the reader. Students are expected to participate actively by working margin exercises and completion examples as they progress through each section. The answers to the margin exercises are in the back of the text and the answers to the completion examples are at the end of each section. The text's flexible style allows for teaching based on the standard lecture method and for programs based on the cooperative learning (small group studies) or independent study in a mathematics laboratory setting. The NCTM and AMATYC curriculum standards have been taken into consideration in the development of topics.
