Do you want a successful program in elementary algebra based on modeling real-world situations? We have everything you need right here. We are pleased to offer Elementary Algebra: A Modeling Approach by Kathy Yoshiwara. More than just a textbook, this is a full-service course that has been class-tested and is ready for you to use. If you have attended any of Kathy's presentations on modeling, you know she is an expert in the field. She has refined her program over the last five years at Los Angeles Pierce College.
This is Kathy's step-by-step guide for how to organize and run your classroom. It gives details on how to integrate the online homework system, XYZ Homework, the Activities Guide, and the textbook to create a successful course in Elementary algebra, from a modeling perspective.
The foundation of the course is the textbook. Here is where the student finds the examples, explanations, and problems that will take them to a new level in mathematical maturity. The student can purchase the print version of the textbook for $58 (which includes all our electronic content), or they can purchase a one-year All-Access pass for $45.
In-class activities for every section of the textbook are your lesson plans for the course. These are available free on the website, or the complete booklet can be purchased for $27.
