ABOUT THE BOOK

About This Book

Prealgebra for Rhode Island College is a good example of the high-quality custom projects we produce. You tell us how you want our materials arranged, and we'll publish a textbook that coincides perfectly with your course syllabus. We offer a quick turnaround time and great service to meet your school-specific needs.

This is a one-semester, college mathematics book that introduces students to negative numbers and equations early on in the course. Negative numbers are in the second chapter, and equations are in the fourth chapter. Students get an early introduction to algebra, then we follow up by integrating those ideas into the rest of the book.

Textbook Features

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.

Real-Data Application Problems

This book includes many new problems that use real-world applications for the mathematical subject, making the concepts easier to understand. Many times the charts and graphics in the text look like the types of charts and graphics students see in the media.

Facts from Geometry

This feature gives students a chance to see how topics from geometry are related to the algebra they are using.

I have taught elementary school through to calculus. I am best suited for teaching developmental math at the community college level. Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to have students that always impressed me with their willingness to improve their position in life through education.
