Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 "Prealgebra, "2e, is a book "for the student." The author's goal is to help build students' confidence, their understanding and appreciation of math, and their basic skills by presenting an extremely user-friendly text that models a framework in which students can succeed. Unfortunately, students who place into developmental math courses often struggle with math anxiety due to bad experiences in past math courses. Developmental math students often have never developed nor applied a study system in mathematics. To address these needs, the author has framed three goals for "Prealgebra": 1) reduce math anxiety, 2) teach for understanding, and 3) foster critical thinking and enthusiasm. The author's writing style is extremely student-friendly. He talks to 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 using the "monkey-see, monkey-do" approach that some books take. The second edition has been revised to include an increase in mid-level examples and exercises. In addition, the explanations and annotations are now more concise, yet keep the ever-important thoroughness that is the Carson style. Whole Numbers; Integers; Expressions and Polynomials; Equations; Fractions and Rational Expressions; Decimals; Ratios, Proportions, and Measurement; Percents; Statistics and Graphs For all readers interested in prealgebra.
