Summary

Using a unique study plan to help students succeed,Prealgebra is a book for the student. The author's goal is to help build students' confidence, understanding, and appreciation of math and basic skills by presenting an extremely user-friendly text that models a framework in which students can succeed. To help with poor study habits, the book introduces and integrates a study plan that uses color, note-taking tips, test-taking tips, general time-management skills, and a learning style inventory to provide students with real structure and guidance for this and other courses. Motivation is created throughout the text by a wealth of relevant applications that truly speak to today's students. Trivia bites and historical notes are also included to show where the mathematical concepts come from and to help students relate these concepts to their everyday lives. Tom Carson's writing style is extremely student-friendly. He talks to the students in their own language and walks them through the concepts, explaining not only how to do the math, but also why it works and where it comes from rather than the monkey-see, monkey-do" approach that many other books take.
