Summary

Jamie Blair, John Tobey, and Jeff Slater are experienced developmental math authors and active classroom teachers. They have carefully crafted their texts to support students in this course by staying with them every step of the way. Blair, Tobey and Slater... With you every step of the way. This 3rd edtion of Prealgebra is appropriate for a 1-sem course in Prealgebra and was designed to bridge the gap between arithmetic and algebra topics. Intended for those students who are preparing to take an elementary algebra course and have either not studied algebra or have been previously unsuccessful in arithmetic or algebra. This text integrates algebra rules and concepts with those of arithmetic, sprialing the topics and teaching why, not memorization. Also teaches students the specific study skills necessary to accomade their individual learning styles.
