Appropriate for freshman-level prealgebra courses. This text's clear, well-constructed and straightforward writing style makes it accessible to even the most apprehensive math students. The primary focus of the pedagogy, presentation and other elements is to ease the transition into algebra; for example, emphasis is placed on basic arithmetic operations within algebraic contexts. The Second Edition includes a greater integration of NCTM and AMATYC standards, including more emphasis on visualization, problem solving and data analysis.
