Summary

As in previous editions, the focus in PREALGEBRA & INTRODUCTORY ALGEBRA remains on the Aufmann Interactive Method (AIM). Users are encouraged to be active participants in the classroom and in their own studies as they work through the How To examples and the paired Examples and You Try It problems. The role of "active participant" is crucial to success. Presenting students with worked examples, and then providing them with the opportunity to immediately work similar problems, helps them build their confidence and eventually master the concepts.
