About This Book
XYZ Textbooks is on a mission to improve the quality and affordability of course materials for developmental mathematics.
Getting Ready for Class
Because we want to encourage students to read the book, we place four questions at the end of every section, under the heading Getting Ready for Class, that students can answer from the reading. Even a minimal attempt to answer these questions enhances the students'in-class experience. A number of people using our books use these questions as a student's ticket to class. They collect the student answers as students come in the door.
Paying Attention to Instructions
We try to anticipate problems students have and build features into the text that address these problems. For example, we know students don't always pay attention to instructions when they are doing their homework, and it gets them into trouble on tests and quizzes. So, we build problems into the text, under the heading Paying Attention to Instructions, that require that they read instructions.
Getting Ready for the Next Section
These problems appear at the end of every problem set. They are the exact problems that students will see when they read through the next section of the text. Students who consistently work these problems will be much better prepared for class than students who don't work these problems.
