# Preparation for Algebra

by J. Louis Nanney and John L. Cable

Preparation for Algebra introduces algebraic concepts as basic skills in arithmetic are presented. The reasons for this integration are threefold. First, the students will have more interest in learning the skills of arithmetic when the purpose for solving algebra is revealed. Second, the fact that algebra is an extension of arithmetic will become apparent to the student. Third, the concepts of algebra that are introduced will enhance the student's potential for success in a subsequent course in elementary algebra. New topics, one at a time, are introduces resulting in a text that is easily understood and easy to use in the classroom.
