Pat McKeague's sixth edition of PREALGEBRA is the book for the modern student like you. Like its predecessors, the sixth edition is clear, concise, and patient in explaining the concepts. This new edition contains hundreds of new and updated examples and applications, a redesign that includes cleaner graphics and images (some from Google Earth) that allow you to see the connection between mathematics and your world. This includes references to contemporary topics like gas prices and some of today's most forward thinking companies like Google.
