Summary

Tussy and Gustafson's fully integrated learning process is designed to expand students' reasoning abilities and teach them how to read, write, and think mathematically. In this thorough review of arithmetic and geometry, the authors also introduce the fundamental algebraic concepts needed by students who intend to take an introductory algebra course. Tussy and Gustafson build the strong mathematical foundation necessary to give students confidence to apply their newly acquired skills in further mathematics courses, at home or on the job.
